Restaurant Spotlight: Artist’s Palate, Poughkeepsie


This contemporary downtown bistro and wine bar features an American/fusion menu that changes regularly. Look for luxe offerings like a Kobe burger on onion brioche, and renowned lobster mac and cheese (above), which our editors deemed so delicious, it merited its own Best Of Hudson Valley award. Husband and wife duo Charles Fells and Megan Kulpa Fells serve as both co-owners and Executive Chefs. The pair, who is widely credited with jumpstarting Poughkeepsie’s renaissance, has a bounty of experience in the restaurant industry throughout the Hudson Valley — and even on TV. In 2009, Megan was featured on The Food Network’s hit competition series, Chopped.
