There are 80 restaurants participating in Hudson Valley Restaurant Week that are steps away or a short cab ride from Metro-North Railroad stations on the Harlem, Hudson and New Haven Lines.
The multi-county dining event, now in its 8th year, features nearly 200 restaurants offering three-course dinners for $29.95 and lunches for $20.95 (plus drinks, tax and tip) and runs until March 23rd.
Hudson Valley prides itself on its agriculture, and the use of locally produced ingredients is highlighted in the many culinary offerings. The area has dozens of indoor and outdoor farmers markets featuring an abundance of fruit and vegetables, in addition to artisanal breads and cheeses.
The region has also become highly regarded for its diverse and interesting wine production. Expect to see a number of reds and whites from local wineries featured on dining menus during Restaurant Week.
While reservations are strongly recommended and in many cases required, diners don’t have to worry about passes, tickets or coupons. They can simply choose from a list of restaurants online at http://www.hudsonvalleyrestaurantweek.com/restaurants_2014.php.
