HUDSON VALLEY RESTAURANT WEEK 2009 CONFIRMED
NEWBURGH, New York - Although the foliage is hardly away from the tree, it's not too early to think about the tempting food that awaits adventure-seeking guests during next spring's third Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. Hudson Valley's extremely well-loved 12-day feast of good food will take place from 22 March to 3 April 2009 in top venues throughout Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Dutchess, Orange, Ulster and Columbia County.
Restaurant can now enroll for the campaign and receive an early booking rebate if they enroll before November 30th. "The Restaurant Week is the ideal occasion to indulge in low-cost gastronomic dining," says Janet Crawshaw, organiser and editor of The Valley Table, a biannual publication that focuses on the Hudson Valley's farming, eating and cooking.
"Diners have an exceptional chance to present their best creation, win new guests and inspire high-flyers. It' about the Hudson Valley and the joys of eating. "During the two-week session (Sunday to Friday only), attending restaurateurs will be offering a three-course meal for $28.09 (drinks, taxes and gratuities not included).
There are many local cooks who emphasize the diversity of the area by using the best local produce on their Restaurant Week menu. "The cooks delight their clients with many Hudson Valley delicacies such as game, pig meat, artisan cheese, apple, wine and just about anything a real gourmet can expect," says Crawshaw.
Due to the increasing success of the show, the organisers expect the number of attending venues to rise from 81 in 2008 to over 100 in 2 009. Things are tempting and expanding - from Restaurant 42 at the Ritz Carlton Residences in White Plains to the historical John Michael's in North Salem and the beloved turtle in Rhinebeck.
Restaurant Week 2009 will be one of the kick-off days for the 40th centenary of Henry Hudson's research of the city' s riverbank in 1609. During the 12-day meeting, many of the participating venues recorded significant growth in the year. We' ve made many new acquaintances and clients through Restaurant Week and look forward to returning in 2009.
" Not only the caterers were enthusiastic about the Restaurantwoche 2008. "It was a delicious two-week Hudson Valley Restaurant Week," said a supper host Linda. "We had a lovely meal in 10 different restaurants and we had one more (I wish there was more food - we would have others!)""We ate during the restaurant week at Off Broadway in Dobbs Ferry, a quick stroll away from where we live," said clients Barbara and Steve.
