Hudson Valley Food

Focus on locally sourced food at restaurants in the Hudson Valley allows for fresh, seasonal, and diverse farm-to-table offerings year-round. A dining experience in the Hudson Valley gives you a taste of the region itself—what fruits and vegetables are in season and what artisanal products are made in the area. The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park is one of the top cooking schools in the world, and many Hudson Valley restaurants are staffed with CIA graduates. From modern gastropubs to old-world cafés, Hudson Valley restaurants include a wide variety of culinary styles, applying innovative techniques to the local palette.

Hudson Valley Drink

From wineries to breweries to distilleries, the Hudson Valley is home to a thriving craft-beverage industry. Historically, the Hudson Valley is an important place for wine and spirits, home to places like Tuthilltown—the first microdistillery to open in New York since Prohibition. The Hudson Valley offers a vibrant scene for locally made artisanal wine, beer, hard cider, and spirits, and many facilities offer tours and tastings for a behind-the-scenes look into the handcrafted process. Hudson Valley restaurants and bars also offer regional beer and wine and artisanal cocktails made with local spirits.

Hudson Valley Restaurant Week

During Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, the region's finest culinary creations are available at bargain prices. The region-wide food event includes more than 190 participating restaurants offering three-course prix-fixe dinners and lunches. These restaurants are located in seven counties along the Hudson River from north of New York City to just south of Albany. Restaurants, the farmers who supply them, and the surrounding businesses all benefit from increased neighborhood traffic during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, making it an important event for the local economy.
