Saugerties, NY — Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, March 18-31, 2012, is the perfect time to discover world-class dining while exploring the scenic, historic and agricultural wonders of New York's famed Hudson River Valley.
This culinary extravaganza runs a full 14 days, including two weekends, making it tantalizing for those looking for a tasty overnight getaway.

More than 170 participating restaurants will offer three-course prix-fixe din ners at $29.95 and three-course lunches at $20.95. Participating restaurants are located in seven counties (Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange, Dutchess, Ulster and Columbia) along the Hudson River from north of New York City to just south of Albany.

Because of the Valley's strong agricultural base, the use of locally-produced ingredients on Restaurant Week menus is part of the event's appeal. Crawshaw says. "Our chefs find both inspiration and amazing ingredients in the surrounding farms, orchards and vineyards."

Hudson Valley Restaurant Week is presented by The Valley Table in partnership with Dutchess County Tourism and Westchester County Tourism. Major sponsors are M&T Bank, WHUD Radio, The Gold Standard, The Cul inary Institute of America, Hudson Valley Bounty, Crown Maple Syrup and Millbrook Vineyards and Winery.
