Cellaio

Monticello

In true Hudson Valley fashion, Scott Conant’s Cellaio embraces all things seasonal on its Restaurant Week menu. Diners at Resort World Catskills can jumpstart their taste buds with a savory mushroom and whipped ricotta soup, then delve into either roasted trout or chicken al limone. For dessert, end dinner on a high note with a perfect portion of salted caramel budino with gianduja crumble. Now that’s how to do upscale comfort food in the Hudson Valley.

The Greekish

Nyack

When it comes to Restaurant Week specials, The Greekish, formerly 8 North Broadway, takes its menu very seriously. The Nyack spot switches up the standard app, entrée, and dessert format with an option to pick one dip and pita, plus any three meze dishes. Speaking of the meze, they could be anything from fresh shucked oysters and falafel lettuce wraps to olive oil-seared calamari with bitter greens and loukaniko. It’s a must for anyone who loves a build-your-own-adventure meal.

Heritage Food + Drink

Wappingers Falls

It’s no secret that the Hudson Valley loves Heritage (it won best craft cocktails at the 2021 Best of Hudson Valley awards). In honor of Restaurant Week, the Wappingers Falls eatery embraces fall flavors and farm-to-table comfort fare. Kick the dinner party off with apps like roasted corn and goat cheese fritters with spicy honey butter. Follow them up with the beef and blue cheese pot pie with shaved ribeye, caramelized onions, and garlic. There’s also a delicious jerk chicken rice bowl. As for sweets, make a beeline for the pumpkin spiced cannoli crepes. In case you haven’t seen Heritage’s desserts on Instagram, they’re show-stopping treats too good to be shared.

Millstream Tavern

Woodstock

Millstream Tavern made a splash this year, with farm-to-table eats from the team behind The Dutch Ale House—which also has a delectable Hudson Valley Restaurant Week menu. Start dinner on a high note with a savory chicken liver tart, featuring pickled red onions and mustard seeds. Then, dig into a honey nut squash tagliatelle pasta with brown butter and freshly grated parmesan cheese. Finally, end the night with an ambrosia parfait.

The Ship Lantern Inn

Milton

This Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, The Ship Lantern Inn celebrates almost a century of fine dining. Contemporary American and Italian cuisine graces this menu. Diners at the Ulster County destination can start the night with apps like a warm cream of butternut squash bisque or Cajun-seared Panama shrimp with asparagus and local goat cheese. Select a truly show-stopping main, like the parmesan-crusted swordfish served with roasted shallots and a Stoutridge Winery Vidal. Of course, irresistible desserts like Lukan Farm honey-infused crème brûlée or the elderflower panna cotta end the night in grand fashion.
