lunch in Cold Spring

adorno Oct 12, 2010 12:29 PM

Going to Cold Spring this weekend. Evening dining will be Le Bouchon and C's Tuscan Grill. (These were selected by others and are unchangeable.)

At lunch, I need something in town (I won't have a car) and good for one person. I don't need elegant (but I'd like more than cold sandwiches or salads) and I will probably be reading at lunch so I need a place that won't look askance at that.

    great dinner choices...maybe hudson house for lunch...they have a small deck right on the river where you can read to your hearts content...but view will distract you!

      I'm actually staying at the Hudson House so it's maybe a good idea to check out their cuisine. How is the Depot restaurant in the old railway depot?

        What ever you do dont step foot in the railway depot.There is a tuscan place and a french place across from it.Both very good and lightyears better then railroad depot. unless your a biker of course:)

            Any other ideas, though? The two places you mention are the ones I'm already set to go to for dinner.

          The Foundry Cafe is my favorite, despite the sketchy service. Try the rice and lentil burgers. They are crispy and come with a big salad and apple sauce. They serve a great breakfast too. Oatmeal with the works or omelets.

            Lot of solid options, even better if you have a car (which I know you don't). The Depot is mediocre, not bad, but nothing special, the Foundry is good but the service/wait is awful. I'd say Hudson Hil's is a solid choice, I also am a fan of Whistling Willies burgers at the top of the hill. Riverview is more of a dinner choice, but the food is good and the view (as the name says) is impressive.
