Hudson Valley Adventures

I may get more response under this title....

I am in Ellenville for the next few weeks doing a play at the Shadowland Theater. We have already exhausted all of Ellenville and am now looking for some day trip food adventures (we want to combine it with sightseeing and hiking). We have been to New Paltz a few times already and am also eager to get out to Woodstock, Saugerties, Kingston, and any other local areas that are of interest. We are willing to drive an hour or so.

Any suggestions is greatly appreciated and I promise a full report at the end of the trip. Thanks.

  1. New World Home Cooking in Saugerties is worth the drive. Joshuas in Woodstock is decent. Maybe not worth the drive, but if you're in the vicinity, it's definitely worthwhile.

    1. 1.Nina in Middletown on Main a great place. Middletown is about 25 minutes from Ellenville.

      2.Go straight down Rt 209 (south) into Port Jervis. There is a restaurant called The vault. It once was a bank. The owners are graduates of the CIA, I believe. It's about 25 or 30 minutes from Ellenville.

      3.Also in Middletown, on Dolsen Ave is the Blue Finn Grill. It's a Japanese/fusion restaurant. Here also the owner/chef is a CIA graduate.

      4. Take Rt 52 west ALL THE WAY INTO LIBERTY (I'm guessing 45 minutes or so) and find Manny's Steakhouse near Rt 17.

      1. mohunk mountain house would be an enjoyable day trip...and the lunch buffet is pretty good

          if you are looking for a "food adventure" as noted in the OP, please don't go to mohonk. beautiful setting, but mediocre food.

          1. The Red Onion in Saugerties is a worthwhile night out.
