Build It and They Will Come as Veganism Goes Mainstream
By Barbara Ballinger
This past April, Bobbi Jo Forte, Bonnie Schweppe, and Martin J. Pucino opened WildFlower Café, a vegan burger bar on West Market Street in Red Hook, named by Forte for her love of the late Tom Petty’s Wildflower album.
On May 31, Rhinebeck's The Local reopened as Catch 38, a contemporary inland fish shack. Wes and Bryn Dier are still at the helm. Their new concept and rebranding has breathed fresh life into the institution.
