Hudson Valley Restaurant Week: New Paltz Area Favorites

November 2-15, the Hudson Valley's best restaurants will offer their most delicious meals from a discounted prix-fixe menu as part of Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. Each eatery will feature three-course lunch and dinner options for $20.95 and $29.95, respectively. Patrons 21-years and older will have the ability to pair fine local wine and cocktails with their menu selection.

Hudson Valley Restaurant Week provides residents and visitors of the area with an opportunity to discover new restaurants as well as a chance to reconnect with local classics.

Here are some of our favorite New Paltz and Gardiner area restaurants participating in this two-week fall event:

A Tavola - New Paltz, NY


We start with one of the absolute best; A Tavola Trattoria of New Paltz offers delicious Italian cuisine in an warm, upscale-rustic environment. While the recipes are derived from the Mediterranean, the most important ingredients are sourced from local farms and vineyards, which are proudly listed on a chalkboard for all to see.

A Tavola has been rated both "Best Restaurant" and "Best Pasta" in recent years by Hudson Valley Magazine and should be very close to the top of your list for 2015's Fall Restaurant Week.
