Glen Falls House knows a little something about crafting unforgettable experiences. Since its grand debut in the Hudson Valley in 2018, the Round Top retreat has made it a mission to help guests disconnect, unwind, and find peace amid the serenity of Greene County. It’s an easy thing for visitors to do thanks to the lack of TVs in rooms and abundance of natural beauty surrounding the property. And now, with the introduction of its exciting new dinner series, it’s all too easy to sit back, relax, and truly savor an escape here.
Kicking off in October, The Full House dinner series is a special collaboration with The Wild Honey Pie to bring a rotating selection of guest chefs to craft limited-edition menus that visitors won’t soon forget.
“Sharing dining experiences from diverse backgrounds and personal experiences has brought us to the creation of a mini tour of foods from all over the world,” Glen Falls House co-founders Greg Brier and Jonathan Picco explain. “We have been having a blast so far working with talented new teams in the kitchen each week and learning so much about food in general.”
For the series, which takes place inside Trotwood, the hotel’s onsite restaurant, visiting chefs craft meaningful menus that tap into a medley of cultures and experiences. Depending on the week, diners may be in for anything from new American comfort food to contemporary Caribbean cuisine to artful Vietnamese fusion fare. No two weeks or menus are the same, so guests and locals alike would do well to plan repeat visits to sample everything coming out of the Trotwood kitchen.
Thus far, The Full House series has featured notable names like Matthew Olley of The Little Viking Co., Phoebe Tran of Bé Bếp Kitchen, Chris DeJesus of Butcher & Bee, and Toya Henry of Pimento NYC. As far as what the menus looked like, Olley tempted diners with bites like truffle mac and cheese and Kentucky fried mushrooms and waffles, while Henry dished up delights like poached pepper shrimp and charred branzino with basmati and forbidden rice. Coming up, chefs from Suzume BK, Malli LA, and Pecking House BK will all make appearances.
And that’s just the start. While the first part of the series runs through New Year’s Eve, the second segment will extend from January through March. After that, Glen Falls House will unveil its 2024 food program for Trotwood.
“We’re excited about the second half of this first leg of the series and look forward to announcing New Year’s Eve and beyond, with many more talented chefs to come,” Brier and Picco enthuse. “In addition to food, a number of musicians and DJs will be making guest appearances throughout.”
Because the dinner series runs for a limited time, reservations are recommended, although walk-ins are also welcome. Both guests of the hotel and Hudson Valley locals are welcome to stop by to experience the one-of-a-kind menus inside Trotwood’s cozy, welcoming atmosphere.
Of course, with cooler temperatures settling into the Hudson Valley, it could be the perfect time to plan a longer visit to Glen Falls House, which is located just a short drive from both Hunter and Windham mountains, as well as day-trippable towns like Catskill and Saugerties. With 47 acres of hiking and mountain biking trails on the property, not to mention picturesque waterfalls, a sauna, and fire pits galore, the retreat knows how to do the winter season in the Hudson Valley right.
While the hotel has roots dating back to 2016, when Brier and Picco teamed up to revamp the historic property, it’s very much a place that looks to a bright future in the Hudson Valley.
“We are always launching new components of the property development plan and cultural programming, as life in the Catskills continues to evolve for us,” the duo explains. “This project has been a living conversation between ourselves, our guests, and our partners, and that unique nature is something that imbues it with its own force and energy.”
