Restaurant Openings: April 2011 

Dining at Gaby’s Rhinebeck
  • Dining at Gaby’s Rhinebeck

Billy Joe’s Rib Works
845-565-1560; 26 Front Street, Newburgh;
Billy Joe’s has all the makings of a down South barbecue—and then some. Smoked ribs (half rack $16.99/full rack $19.99), hand-rubbed meats, baked mac ‘n cheese, sliders, and baked spuds. With an equally extensive drink menu, 5 55” LED TVs, an outside bar, and nightly live performances this new smokehouse is set to bring fresh flavor to Newburgh the waterfront.

Crossroads Brewing Company

21 Second Street, Athens;
Ken Landin and Janine Bennett have restored the formerly dilapidated 15,000-square-foot Brooks Opera House in Athens and turned it into a two-story brewery, music venue, and restaurant. Crossroads is currently serving up pints of Outrage— a citric IPA, Brick Row Red Ale, Black Rock Stout, and Brady’s Bay Cream Ale.


47 Railroad Street, Great Barrington MA; (413) 528-0351
Berkshire-native brothers Alexander and Matthew Feldman have transformed a long vacant restaurant into a showcase for a fresh take on Italian cuisine. Fiori (“flowers” in Italiano) boasts classic Italian staples like lasagna, antipasto ($18 serves two), and risotto, but the brothers mix-up their lineup with items like wood-grilled hanger steak ($23) and local grass-fed pork.

Gaby’s Café Rhinebeck

6423 Montgomery Street, Rhinebeck;
Table-side mashed guacamole ($10.50), sizzling fajitas, and fresh vegetables are some of what you can expect when dining at Gaby’s. After opening in Ellenville in 2008, the Mexican-American restaurant is bringing its specialty fare to Montgomery Row in Rhinebeck with a brand new venue, and meals prepared right at your table.

Henry’s at Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa

220 North Road, Milton;
After a walk through exquisitely manicured gardens with Hudson River views, return to a beautifully decorated dining room for a colorful, contemporary American meal. Henry’s menu features local produce and meats (NY Strip steak in horseradish demi-glace, $26) prepared with artisanal flare and served under intimate touches like blown-glass light fixtures.

Hopheads Craft Beer Market & Tasting Bar

2303 Lucas Avenue, High Falls;
Jane Simos has turned her former Morning Brew coffee house space at the crossroads in High Falls into a cozy beer lovers’ nook. Hopheads features half a dozen craft beers on tap—Lake Placid IPA and Capt. Lawrence Liquid Gold were recent pours—and more than 50 bottles for drink-in or takeout. For noshing, charcuterie (serving board for three, $20), cheese boards, small plates, and sandwiches are available.

Pizza Shop
27 South Water Street, Newburgh;
Giving new life to the West Shore Train Station along the Newburgh waterfront, Pizza Shop is much more than any old pizza joint; featuring a cathedral ceiling, open air kitchen, Hudson River views, and a dining deck. The refurbished pizzeria also offers a plethora of menu items like crispy wings ($8.95), chopped salads, and cheesy pastas. Pizza options include gluten-free, thin and wheat crust, gourmet toppings ($14.95), delivery and dessert.

Twisted Foods Pretzel Roll Factory
446 Main Street, Rosendale; (845) 658-9121
Twisted Foods takes one of those great ideas we’ve all had for a combination food concoction and turns it into a gourmet masterpiece. Start with a homemade pretzel roll infused with salt, herbs, or fruits—top it with flavored cream cheese or make it into a breakfast sandwich ($3.95 for a frittata on a pretzel roll with fruit, or make it $4.50 for tuna/chicken salad). Wash it down with freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, or a cup of organic coffee.
