Winter 2012 is going out with a whimper—actually, with this week’s temperatures hitting the lows 70s—more like a whisper… But, hey, all the more reason to step out during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, which spans seven New York counties, and lasts two full weeks, from March 18th to 31st.
Now in its sixth year, participating restaurants pay tribute to local, seasonal bounty. You’ll have a chance to eat local, drink local and make merry at any one of 200 participating restaurants… On offer: $20.95 three-course lunches and $29.95 three-course prix fixe dinners.
