Here's the Latest in the Local Food and Drink Scene



They’re still there! Local favorite Sugar and Spice Café has moved into a larger space in Poughkeepsie Plaza. Expect the same heavenly fries, soups, and paninis, but in a dramatically different rustic-chic location. 845.471.4603

Jump on the crêpe bandwagon at Ohana Café in Saugerties, where you can build your own sweet and savory creations or try such house specialties as Hawaiian-inspired pork and pineapple or cinnamon and brie with caramelized apples. 845.217.5750

Middletown’s multi-tasking Copperbarn Coffeebar & Eatery not only serves up coffee drinks, but also specializes in local pub brews. Starring on the growing lunch menu: avocado toast with hummus, and the surf-and-turf beef-and-shrimp combo burger. 845.381.1400

With Kingston’s Wiltwyck Golf Club now open to the public, you can dine at its on-site restaurant, Capital Tavern, whether you’ve hit the greens or not. Lauded chef Kenny Callaghan is turning out rustic American fare like cider-brined roasted chicken and seasonal vegetable and mushroom ragout. 845.663.2040

Casual yet classic, The Greek Kitchen in Nyack is our new go-to spot for tender gyro and spinach pie. Psst: Try the galaktoboureko — custard cream in phyllo drizzled in a delicate honey syrup. 845.535.3721

Named for a grand hotel that once occupied the space, King’s Court Brewing Company is a 20-tap spot in Poughkeepsie where you can down a hoppy IPA or a fruity Kolsch while playing trivia or watching the game. A rotating selection of food trucks supplements a developing small bites menu. 917.697.3030
