I just noticed the other day that Hudson Valley Restaurant Week has their restaurant list up. Lunch is $20, dinner is $28.

Some random comments:

New in Northern WestchesterL Thyme in Yorktown and Birdsall House in Peekskill. Tarry Tavern is on, I may try to get there.

I want to get to Back Yard Bistro in Montgomery, I heard great things about them last year.

Red Devon is not participating on Saturdays. They were great last year.

American Bounty and Escoffier at the CIA, but for $29.95.

  1. Thanks for posting this, MisterBill. I intend to try Valley (finally) and Restaurant North this year. Since both are rather pricey, hopefully their RW menus will entice me to return at full price.

    1. re: i_eat_a_lot_of_ice_cream

      Yes, North was a major addition. My only problem is that I do not eat pork, and from their reviews it appears that pork is their favorite ingredient, so I am not sure that it's worth making a reservation without seeing the menu.

    2. Thanks for posting MisterBill. Do you, or anyone else, haven't done restaurant week up here yet and want to hit several places this year - finally. However, I do recall some posts in previous years complaining that certain restaurants weren't offering good restaurant week menu options.

      Do you - or anyone else - have specific recs for restaurants that have done/do a good job with solid restaurant week menus and, as important, have any experience with those that don't?

      Thanks.

      1. I'm excited! I've gone somewhere the past 3 years in a row, with last year being the best (Tavern and Twist (RIP)). I might like to try X20 this year finally, as well as Valley. Menus do play a big role for me though so I'm excited to see them. There were a couple of places that didn't have any main courses I'd be interested in trying. Of course, I suppose I should just be more adventurous and open!

          Wow, I did not know that Twist closed, that is too bad. Do you know what happened? I really liked the food there.

          As long time posters here know I kind of overdo it during HVRW. Last year, we ate at Union Restaurant & Bar Latino, Terrace Club, Valley (twice), Terrapin, Cafe of Love, Red Devon and X2O. All of them had interesting menus and I enjoyed all of them except for Terrace Club. I always pick based on the menu, and in fact a couple of years ago I cancelled a reservation a 42 because I did not like their menu. However, the reviews for them during HVRW have generally been good, so I may try them this year. Will also go to Thyme since they are local. Will probably go back to Union and Red Devon (although they are not doing Saturdays this year). Want to get to Back Yard Bistro (and I emailed them and was told they are taking reservations now so I have to figure out what I want to do and call). I think we will also try to get to Crave since I did not get there last year (I had a reservation but cancelled it when we decided to do Valley a second time with my kids).

            See this thread about Twist closing: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/749729
            It's disappointing. A group of about 14 friends and I went there for RW last year and we all really enjoyed it. I would've definitely gone back during RW this year (my budget is limited so I rarely splurge during the year).

            I have been to Crave and think it is worth trying during RW.

            1. re: Solstice444

              I agree with Solstice. Crave was excellent last year during RW.

        2. Some of my favorite restaurants are on this year's list. I'm excited.

          1. I went to X2O last year with a group of women, and the menu was amazing. We each ordered something different, and passed the plates around. Chef Kelly did not dissapoint! Also amazing were the specialty drinks that were offered, at a discount using all local ingredients. Can't wait to go back this year!
