5 Great Things We’re Eating and Drinking in February

Share

Our food editor Steve Fowler reveals what to order in the Hudson Valley this month.

 

Bloody Helm at The Helm

Greenwood Lake
Sunday brunch is almost always improved by a cocktail. Now, is that cocktail is better in the form of a mimosa or a Bloody Mary? That’s a debate best left to the comments section. One thing not up for debate is that The Helm’s take on a Bloody Mary is a bloody masterpiece. A proprietary mix is crafted in house and spiked with Tito’s vodka to start, but the real kicker to this cocktail is the accoutrements: An olive kebab towers over chunks of skewered pork belly and other rotating ingredients for a cocktail that’s not so far off from a meal.

 

Chorizo and Sausage Biscuits and Gravy at Creekside Bar & Bistro

Rosendale
Fans of The Gilded Otter will want to head to Rosendale, where former manager and assistant general manager, Reshma Ramoutar and Juan Galvan have opened up their own place, Creekside Bar & Bistro.

Their menu features a variety of creative takes on pub fare, but there’s no better way to warm your bones on a chilly winter morning — of which we’ve certainly had a few — than with a couple of biscuits and eggs slathered in chorizo and sausage gravy.

Farro Chopped Salad from Communal Kitchen

Nyack
On the lighter side of things is this wholesome, best-selling dish at Communal Kitchen. By cooking farro with apple cider, honey, and herbs, a hint of sweetness complements the grain’s nutty flavor. On top of that, the kitchen adds in a mix of piquant vegetables like baby arugula, heirloom tomatoes, and radishes, a toss of toasted pistachios and parmesan, and a drizzle of roasted garlic-lemon vinaigrette.

Keep things as-is for the vegetarian version or boost your protein intake by adding chicken or salmon for a little extra.

 

Brisket Sandwich at Brothers Barbecue

New Windsor
You can travel far and wide for that rarest of things: a properly cooked brisket. But Orange County residents are spoiled with Brothers Barbecue, where pit masters pass the tenderness test with flying colors. A thick bark of salty, peppery goodness encrusts the juicy beef, which arrives on a fluffy brioche bun for a sweet and savory sandwich that may not be the perfect choice for date night, but is for virtually any other day of the year.
