2020 Spring Dining Guide


Partner Content

It’s spring — the time to normally head outside and socialize. But these days, the times are anything but normal. As we adjust to a new normal resulting from the coronavirus outbreak, we’re now staying home and virtually socializing while keeping our distance in an effort to contain the virus. We can still support and sample our favorite restaurants. Here are some suggestions — Hudson Valley restaurants that make the most of local ingredients in season with options to match every mood and palate that may also lift your spirits and theirs.


History and German traditions blend

This multiple award-winning landmark Inn and Restaurant, built circa 1865, is a Greene County Historic Site. Although temporarily closed during these uncertain times, when we reopen for our normal Thursday through Sunday schedule, you will find a scratch kitchen and authentic German/American cuisine.

Farm fresh meals day and night

From juicy hamburgers, crisp salads, and wraps to farm-fresh breakfasts and sumptuous desserts, our local family-owned diner will continue to offer our delicious meals, but for now to-go only. Daily Planet Diner offers online ordering through the website for pick-up or Door Dash delivery. In addition to takeout, Table Talk Diner offers Door Dash and ChowNow and Red Line Diner provides curbside pick-up. Everything on the menu is available for takeout. Call and check our hours for all three diners.

Welcome spring with dining gift certificates 

Although temporarily closed, remember Henry’s online gift certificates are available “for brighter days ahead.” While you’re waiting for life to return to normal and for Henry’s to reopen, think of their fresh honey, eggs, and the earliest fruits and vegetables, sourced steps away at Buttermilk’s own Millstone Farm and from like-minded neighboring farms. Henry’s craft cocktails also include a nod to what’s fresh and ready!

The best ingredients make the best meals

Lolita’s Pizza is taking the Coronavirus very seriously. Our staff is carefully following CDC best practices for food preparation. And, even though we’re currently open for takeout and delivery only, you can still feast on our wood-fired Neapolitan inspired pizza, pastas made in-house, artisanal salads, craft cocktails, and award-winning wines. Check our website for specials. It is our firm belief that eating pizza and kale boosts the immune system!

Feast on small plates and dessert

Our Fine Foods Café continues to offer delectable small plates and delicious dinners but is operating on a limited scale with curbside pick-up Tuesday to Saturday, 4 pm to 8 pm. The Corner Bakery is operating for carry-out orders as well on Sunday and Monday from 8 am to 5 pm and Tuesday through Saturday, 8 am to 8 pm. Check our daily menu options through social media and give us a call — we’ll gladly meet you out front with your order.

Farm-fresh spirits, live music, and a food truck

Our cocktail bar is located in an old barn nestled among 23 acres of farmland. You can still enjoy our spirits, farm-fresh cocktails, a wide choice of beer, cider and wine — for pick-up only for now. When life returns to normal, we hope you’ll return to also enjoy our live music on Fridays and Saturdays, our food truck every day we’re open, Sunday brunch, and our expansive outdoor seating.

The season for the Original NY-Style BBQ

With passion, we craft our own authentic recipes, rubs, and artisan flavors highlighted through exclusively wood-smoked meats at our location in the Village of Rhinebeck. Currently, our entire menu is available for takeout and we’re including our homemade soup complimentary with every order. Try our signature combo platters and family takeout packages. BBQ is the best for takeout.
