For anyone heading Upstate this weekend or next- it is Hudson Valley Restaurant Week! What a better way to sample some of the regions amazing fall produce than a prix fixe meal at the likes of Restaurant No. 9 in Millerton, Henry’s at the Farm in Milton, Crave in Poughkeepsie, or Terrapin in Rhinebeck. Most of the restaurants are in Dutchess, Orange and Westchester County, with a sprinkling in Columbia and Ulster. The lunch prix fixe is $20.95 and the dinner is #29.95! It is a great reason to get out and explore towns you may have never been to!
