Mid to lower Hudson River Valley: Romantic restaurants?
I tried a number of searches but had some trouble finding this info.
I am planning a weekend trip to celebrate our anniversary over the weekend of October 22-23. We're staying in Beacon, and would love to hear recommendations for a great dinner within a 45 minute (max) drive of the B&B. We are flexible on price; mostly want great food and great atmosphere.
I would have loved Blue Hill, but per Open Table they have absolutely nothing available. Same goes for Escoffier (or any of the CIA options).
Checked into Backyard Bistro, which sounds unbelievable -- but again, I'm assuming totally unavailable.
So here is what I'm considering at the moment:
Valley at the Garrison
I would love more options, and some good recommendations. Thanks so much in advance!

I think Aroma Osteria, in Wappinger Falls, is romantic (i guess it depends on where they seat you) and I have had some good meals there, it's a sister restaurant to Il Barlotto, in Fishkill, which also may be a good choice...... http://www.aromaosteriarestaurant.com/home.htm and http://www.ilbarilottorestaurant.com/... let us know where you end up. BTW, I would call places directly to check for reservations, I've heard more then once of problems with open table.

Terrapin is great! I would also recommend Crave in Poughkeepsie, it's a small restaurant. It's not dimly lit if that's what you're looking for, but it is cozy, and the food is good. I haven't been to Valley, but Tavern in Garrison (at the Highlands County Club) had good food and the setting was romantic, in my opinion!
