Mill & Main: A New Restaurant and Market Comes to Kerhonkson

Mill & Main: A New Restaurant and Market Comes to Kerhonkson

At the end of Kerhonkson’s short Main Street (different from the main drag, which is inexplicably called 42nd Street) sits a formerly vacant, run-down, and flood-damaged building. Claudia Sidoti and Paul Weathered and their son Christopher Weathered have spent the last few months breathing fresh life into the derelict building to house their new restaurant, coffee shop, and marketplace, Mill & Main. The coffee shop is set to open in August, while the provisions market and restaurant will debut in the fall with a menu featuring seasonal produce and recipes from the owners' Colombian, Caribbean, and Italian heritage.

Hudson Roastery Brings Combination Coffee and Wine Bars Stateside

Bus Stop Grill: Garrison's Mobile Restaurant and Family Business Innovation

Driving down Route 9 outside Garrison, it’s hard to miss the Bus Stop Grill—a large bright red bus-turned-restaurant parked on the side of the road. The mobile restaurant is the brainchild of local business owner Ernest Knippenberg, whose bus company Hudson Valley Charter Service has been in the family for more than 50 years. Bus Stop Grill offers both breakfast and lunch, served from 7 to 11am and 11am to 3pm respectively. The menus feature American classics––breakfast sandwiches, rolls, bagels, pastries, and muffins in the morning, with corned beef and pastrami sandwiches as the mainstay of the afternoon offerings.


New Lunch Spot in Newburgh: Toasted, an Artisan Bistro

For the last five years, Sam Satanovsky worked as the front-of-house events captain at New York City's NoMad Hotel, a Michelin-starred kitchen, handling all the private rooftop events. When the pandemic hit, this work ground to a halt. On a visit to see his childhood friends in Newburgh, they presented him with a 120-year-old run-down building on Liberty Street. “Screw it,” he said. “Let’s open a restaurant.” Toasted currently focuses on lunch, with salads, sandwiches, and soups made using hyper-fresh ingredients from local farms. But in the future? Live music in the backyard, brunch, and dinner.


The Farmhouse Market: A New Food Fixture on Cornwall's Main Street

After years of traipsing around upstate on weekends, shopping in local markets to assemble the perfect summit snack before hitting the trail, Brooklynites Rosey Ott and Anthony Lanci decided to move upstate and create their own provisions outpost. On Cornwall's Main Street the Farmhouse Market boasts fresh produce, meat, cheese, baked goods, beer, cider, wine, dry goods––even prepackaged charcuterie boards for grab-and-go hiker types.


Mangia! Barbaro Taps into Millbrook's Italian Roots

Like Moths to a Flame: Gravitate to The Lantern Inn for Wood-Fired Pizza & Craft Beer

In the Wee Hamlet of Wassaic, A Culinary Oasis
At various times in the last 100 years, the building that houses The Lantern Inn in Wassaic has been a tavern, a private residence, and a pool hall. As the longtime local watering hole, the Lantern’s fare has evolved from microwaved bar bites to farm-to-table fare in the eight years since the founders of the Wassaic Project bought the building. Under head chef Johnny Dearth, who hails from Michelin-starred Faro in Brooklyn, the Lantern Inn’s menu leans Italian, with an emphasis on seasonality.
