Places to eat in the Hudson Valley

Whether it’s casual dining or white tablecloth service, there’s a place for every palette. Gourmet fare can be found even in the smallest villages since the greatest chefs come from The Culinary Institute of America, located right here in the Hudson Valley. The best part is that our farms provide fresh vegetables, fruits, cheeses, and meats you’ll find on many of our restaurants’ menus. The Hudson Valley was the first wine-producing region in the United States, and excellent vintages are still produced by dozens of picturesque wineries.
