Anything near Staatburg, NY?

Going camping this weekend near Hyde Park/Stattsburgh NY. CIA restaurants are closed for the month, and I'd like to eat out one night...preferably something seasonal and fresh, maybe a place that uses local ingredients? Then again, if there's a hole in the wall place with great food, I'll go there, too!

  1. If you're in Stattsburgh, you can either go South to Hyde Park or North to Rhinebeck, both about five minutes from the center of Stattsburgh. For restaurants serving seasonal food using local ingredients, I'm thinking Terrapin may be your best bet. In Hyde Park, there's always Twist. Though they don't put as much emphasis on "local ingredients" as Terrapin, their food is definitely good. Other than Twist, there are several diner style places in Hyde Park.

    If you're looking for something more interesting, I'd say Rhinebeck may be the town to head to....

      Definitely, Rhinebeck is the place to go. A new great restaurant, Ariel on E. Market. Le Petit Bistro is great, Sabroso is Latin Fusion, Beekman Arms is always fun. But also Portofino in Staatsburgh is quite good. Good value.

    2. The places in Rhinebeck are decent, but I think the best in the area is Madalin's Table in Tivoli.
