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.

This Month's "Well Said!"

Henry's at The Farm - Tasting Notes / New Chef

Buttermilk Farms Inn and Spa

220 North Road, Milton, NY
Reservations: 845-795-1500

Dinner Wednesday through Sunday
Lunch Friday & Saturday
Sunday Brunch

Big doings at Henry's at the Farm, formerly known as Henry's Farm to Table. The restaurant's operation  has been turned over to Chad Greer and his wife Tammy Ogletree, who were the dynamic team that ran the heralded Beso in New Paltz for six years. Chef Greer has already put his stamp on the new menu, and we stopped in last week to sample the goodies. Many of the fruits, vegetables and herbs are grown on site at the restaurant's own Millstone Farm, or up the road at Hepworth Farm. Local is the buzzword here, and other local purveyors were much in evidence last week, including cheeses from Coach Farm, and breads from the wheat wizard, Don Lewis, at Wild Hive Bakery in Salt Point.  
If you do stop in please let our other readers know about your visit in the comments section.
