Hudson Valley Restaurant Week kicks off March 10 and runs through March 23rd, a sure sign of spring! Hundreds of area chefs are getting ready to serve up new and exciting dishes that reflect the best of their menus and the best local ingredients.

Also on the list is the one year old Bocuse Restaurant and its sisters, the America Bounty Restaurant and Ristorante Caterina de’ Medici, all at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. And if you haven’t been to the Mill House Brewing Company yet, maybe now is the time to check out Poughkeepsie’s newest brewpub! Many restaurants feature locally sourced ingredients from places such as Millbrook Vineyards, Sprout Creek Farm, and Irving Farm Coffee Roasters.
At the Hudson Valley Restaurant Week kickoff event, restaurateur Peter X. Kelley was recognized as one of the region’s leaders in the farm-to-table movement, which encourages area chefs to cook with local produce and food products. The owner of establishments in Garrison, Yonkers, and beyond, was honored with the third annual "Farm To Table," award for working closely with local farms and producers when making his menus. He is a graduate of Roy C. Ketcham High School in Wappingers Falls.
