YONKERS, N.Y. -- Mark your calendars for this year’s Fall Hudson Valley Restaurant Week (HVRW). Restaurant Week runs a full 14 days from Nov. 2 to Nov. 15.
The promotion offers diners an opportunity to visit some of the Valley's greatest restaurants at a tremendous discount: $20.95 for three-course luncheons and $29.95 for three-course dinners. I encourage you to make your reservations early as many participating restaurants fill up quickly.
But HVRW is much more than just discounted lunch and dinner pricing. These two weeks allow guests to visit restaurants throughout the Valley from Yonkers to Kingston. Many of the restaurants work closely with the farmers, winemakers, livestock and poultry farms, cheese makers and artisan food producers that are all right here in the Hudson Valley.
Many Restaurant Week promotions offer discounts but HVRW celebrates The Hudson Valley as a dining destination with more than 200 participating restaurants and an abundance of HV products showcased.
The Hudson River Valley which winds through Westchester into Putnam and north through Dutchess County also includes the restaurants and farms of Rockland, Orange and Ulster Counties. There is no more beautiful place to be during the fall foliage and nowhere in the country is more in tune with true farm to table dining than the restaurants of the Hudson Valley.
