4 Hudson Valley Eateries for Casual, Cool Dining This Month
A community bar in Poughkeepsie, a revamped taproom in Woodstock, and an Indian oasis in Newburgh spice up the region.

We’re loving the reasonably priced lunch specials at Jason Patricks on 44 in Poughkeepsie, whether the house salad topped with grilled flank steak or a quesadilla spiced up with Cajun grilled chicken and salsa. The bar is a popular meeting place. 845.345.9562
Woodstock’s R & R Taproom may be owned by a certified cicerone, but it now has a brand new selection of cocktails and natural wines, perfect for pairing with their summer menu of veggie-centric, organic dishes like foraged salad or asparagus with hollandaise sauce. Don’t worry, beer lovers; R&R still has more than 60 brews to choose from. 845.684.5928
Don’t be fooled by the diner exterior: Orange Hill Global Bistro is a stylish oasis near New York Stewart International Airport in Newburgh with an international spin. An ever-evolving menu features such vegan-pleasing specials as sweet potato-chickpea bowl and cauliflower steak. Clay oven wings and baby beets salad also won over our tastebuds. 845.567.1400
Y’s Lounge is the sleek new addition to Mt. Fuji Steakhouse in Hillburn, where diners can try shareable plates of Japanese fusion cuisine like sashimi salmon carpaccio. 845.357.4270

Our Pick: Friday Night Food Trucks
Millbrook Vineyards and Winery, Millbrook
August 2, 9, 16, 23, 30; 5-8 p.m.
Looking for a low-key way to unwind on a Friday night? Millbrook Winery has become one of the most popular hangouts at the end of the week thanks to Friday Night Food Trucks. Grab a glass of wine (only $6) and the gang for a game of cornhole or bocce. You can even bring your own lawn games (Kan-Jam anyone?). The scene is only made sweeter with live music. Among the vendors who will be parked on-site throughout the month are Mole Mole, Three Little Pigs BBQ, Farmers & Chefs, Dave’s Global Kitchen, Weenie Lynn’s, Frites of NY, and The Grille Wagon. 800.662.9463
