5 Hudson Valley New Year's Eve Feasts to Ring in 2020 | Restaurants | Hudson Valley | Chronogram Magazine
All's well that ends well, begin as you mean to go on, and so forth. Basically, the evening that the calendar (and the decade) flips, you might as well eat like royalty. New Year's Eve is a great night for a blowout meal, especially as some of the Hudson Valley's most inspired local chefs striving to outdo their own personal best performances, with custom prix-fixe symphonies of flavor. So why not dust off your dress-up duds and reserve yourselves seats at the table? Here are some suggestions for a truly epic New Year's Eve dinner.

New Year’s Eve Dinner Bash at Bia

A splendid six-course feast at Bia-Rhinebeck for one intimate seating will be aglow with “old school decadence, elegance and cheer.” You’ll be served an amuse-bouche, House Tea Cured Duck Breast with poached asparagus, Dublin Lawyer (which involves lobster gratin, leeks, cream, and Irish whiskey), rosemary roasted pear, and much much more. For $110 per person you’ll get welcome punch, all six courses, and a midnight bubbly; you can add a beverage pairing program for an additional $35.

New Year's Eve at The Amsterdam

Rhinebeck eatery The Amsterdam, helmed by chef Alex Burger, has carved out a niche for itself serving excellent New American fare almost every single day of the year. New Year's Eve, and Christmas eve, for that matter, are no exception. For $95 a person, plus $45 for wine pairings, you can feast yourself on The Amsterdam's gourmet six-course prix fixe menu. Things get classy right out of the gate with oysters and caviar, followed by three appetizer courses of the lobster-and-truffle caliber. Mains include Atlantic turbot, black Angus beef, or wild mushroom risotto for the vegetarians. A lemon sorbet will cleanse your palate before you finish on a high note with an indulgent dessert and a champagne flute to toast the New Year.
