A charcuterie shop in Kingston, a bountiful bakery in Poughkeepsie, and a bubbling brewery in Port Chester make the month delicious.
New to Kingston’s Uptown neighborhood is Board, offering cheese-board boxes and high-brow grilled cheese sandwiches, such as prosciutto, provolone, and fig; Comté, local finocchiona, and hot pepper jam; and NYS-aged cheddar, apple, and mustard. Also planned for the space is a full retail cheese shop, espresso bar, and craft beer selection. 55 N Front St, Kingston; 845.481.4774
CIA-trained baker and former Blue Hill pastry chef Kevin Halim opened Kelly’s Bakery at the North Point Commons development in Poughkeepsie in January. Rustic loaves, including country sourdough, kalamata olive and caramelized onion, potato-cheddar, and rye with dark chocolate and coffee-soaked figs, are made with locally sourced flour, as are the pastries, cookies, and other sweets. Brunch, comprised of sandwiches, tartines, and granola and chia bowls, is also served. 110C Delafield St, Poughkeepsie; 845.533.5677
Westchester is getting a new brewery. Run & Hide will begin distributing its beer this summer, and plans to open a brick-and-mortar location later this year near The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester.
