A monthly event from lolcal seafood market fin – your fishmarket, NINEfin Fridays will give guests a chance to try lobster rolls, lobster mac n’ cheese, and sweet potato salmon burgers made with sustainable seafood from Guilderland’s fresh market. Throw in a bright cider from one of Nine Pin’s 18 taps while you’re at it!
Friday and Saturday nights
Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park
This new addition to the Culinary Institute of America’s restaurant group was originally opened as a pop-up in 2017, but lucky for us, the restaurant is now permanently open for dinner on weekends.
4:30 – 9 p.m.
Olde York Farm Distillery & Cooperage, Claverack-Red Mills
Samosa Shack, branded as “samosas with personality,” will be offering its eccentric Indian food at Olde York Farm Distillery once per month through June. Where does the “personality” come from? It’s packed into flavors like mushroom with roasted tomato, coconut cranberry macaroon, and S’moreSa.
5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
5 Church Street, New Paltz (End Cut restaurant)
For two days in May, this Asian pop-up restaurant will take over End Cut restaurant to serve its fresh noodle bowls. Hot and cold noodle bowls will be offered. Try Szechuan-style bean curd, a hot and spicy pork-tofu stew with shiitake mushrooms, ginger, chilies, and Szechuan peppercorns, or keep it cool with Singaporean chilled noodles and chicken-basil wontons.
5 – 9:30 p.m.
This event takes inspiration from the worldwide dîner-en-blanc trend, in which diners, clad in white, flash gather in a secret location to enjoy wine and food. For the Westchester affair, luxury buses will transport guests to an undisclosed location, where live entertainment and hundreds of white linen tables and chairs will be waiting. Early bird pricing is available for those who register in advance. Allons-y?
