Hudson Valley Restaurant for 40th Bday

I'm going to be staying up hear Hudson next month, and I'm looking for an amazing restaurant that I can actually get reservations for. It can be fresh and innovative, it can be classic but perfectly executed. I'm just looking for somewhere that will be a memorable experience.

I've been searching through the threads, but most of the "best of" discussions are a few years old. What's good right now?

  1. hudson - crimson sparrow. if you want to travel a little, john andrews in great barrington (mass).

    1. Crimson Sparrow would be a great choice. Swoon can also be very good. John Andrew's (which BTW is in South Egremont, not Great Barrington) is good but if you are driving out that way I would give higher marks to Swiss Hutte or the Greens at Copake Country Club.

        speaking of crimson sparrow, it was mentioned just two days ago in an article in the Times about farm to table in the "country":

      2. Ended up going to Swoon and had a really good dinner. Well-curated wine list too. Would definitely return.
