Hudson Valley Restaurant Recommendations

Will be in the Hudson Valley area with my parents (who are world travelers) and would like to take them to some good restaurants for lunch and dinner. We will be in the area this Saturday-Tuesday (Aug 9-12) visiting Kykuit, New Hyde Park, Storm King, Dia Beacon, Olana (and open to other suggestions). Any restaurant recommendations?

Doesn't have to be fancy (Blue Hill is booked, but might try to get seats at the bar), but should have an interesting menu and delicious. Outdoor seating or places with a view would be great.

      Yes, thanks, I have. Other threads seem a bit dated. Do you recommend any places in the area that have a fun menu and/or pretty views? Something other than American, French or Italian cuisine?


      1. re: hudsonvalleyrec

        Look for the recent thread about places between Wappingers and Poughkeepsie. Loads of recommendations on that one for the areas you mention.

    2. new hyde park on long island, hyde park in hudson valley.

      beacon, hyde park, hudson (for places you mentioned) and poughkeepsie, rhinebeck towns next to those. cia in hyde park.

      lots of posts on those places as i eat said.

      1. Fiddlestix Cafe in Cornwall (8 min drive from Storm King) is delicious. It's not fancy, but the food is excellent. I would highly recommend Poppy's Burgers, Gerard's Seafood Cafe and Homespun Foods in Beacon. Get a paleta from Zora Dora as well. Enjoy your time in the Hudson Valley!
