Here's the Hudson Valley Dining News You Need in May

A cocktail lounge in Troy, an Italian eatery in Millbrook, and a Latin hotspot in Hudson spice up the region.


Sink into a clubby armchair. Nibble on exotic nuts and olives. Sip a lemongrass martini or an organic bubbly. That’s the drink-focused scene at The Berlin cocktail lounge, an upstairs oasis in Troy where you’ll need to text ahead your reservation. 518.300.1984

Wood-fired pizzas with intriguing combos like goat cheese, pear, and arugula, classic pastas, and the risotto-of-the-day are standouts at chic charmer Barbaro in Millbrook. 845.677.4440

Refuel on Irving Farm java, local donuts, and scones at Euro-style Dean’s Coffee Co., a 15-seat spot in Pearl River. In the works: sweet and savory crêpes! 845.920.8043

Ride the rails to Café Con Leche, a Caribbean kitchen just a short stroll from the Metro-North station in New Hamburg. Mix and match flaky beef or pork pastellitos, or dig into smashed plantains in garlic-butter sauce. 917.544.5566

For a taste of Central America, visit Hudson’s Casa Latina, an authentic outpost serving up black bean sopes and tacos al pastor. Don’t miss the coffee flan! 518.653.5764
