After sitting vacant for more than a decade the space that housed Angelisa's on College View Avenue is being readied for a new restaurant. Planning is underway for a new Italian eatery at the property, which is owned by George Banta, proprietor of the Beekman Arms and other local establishments. Gianni Scappin, chef owner of Cucina in Woodstock, and formerly at Gigi Trattoria in Rhinebeck will be at the helm. A summer 2012 opening is planned. Stay tuned.
Welcome to our list of favorite dining destinations in New York's Hudson Valley and Adirondack regions. We visit restaurants, wineries, barbecues, and a smattering of off the beaten path culinary destinations like maple sugar shacks and fromageries. My friends and I have been dining out together weekly for over twenty years. The locations we write about are our favorite destinations. We are not claiming they are the best, just our favorites. The posts are not "reviews" in the classic sense. - we offer only our picks, not pans. We will leave the criticism to others. We are a happy blog. We much prefer a good bistro to "haute cuisine", especially if they also have a nice bar. We prefer a crock of cassoulet and a bottle of Beaujolais to just about anything else. If you enjoy simple home style rustic cooking with a decent (but not too expensive) bottle of wine, then pull up a chair and join us.
