When this new eatery claims to be on the Poughkeepsie waterfront, they really mean it; the front door is literally just yards away from the river. (And you can get even closer to the water by dining on the waterfront patio). The location is simply stellar: Wedged between Waryas Park and a pretty walking path, the restaurant, housed in a historic ice house, is located halfway between the Walkway Over the Hudson and the Mid-Hudson Bridge. The views are one-of-a-kind, it’s easily accessible (you can walk to the Metro-North train station), and a team of CIA-trained chefs churns out everything from popular sandwiches to full fish dinners seven days a week. What more could you want? How about a raw bar and dessert on the cozy Mystère cruise ship? We call this a riverfront revolution.
