The dining scene in the Hudson Valley turned a corner when this chic, city-style patio opened for business in 2011. With stunning views of the falls in Fishkill Creek, this breezy space (you can sit at tables or at the zinc bar) has quickly become the place to see and be seen. You can stop by for sophisticated cocktails, small bites (the fries with Gouda cheese and lemon zest have emerged as a crowd favorite), or a full meal. And don’t fret about the upcoming chill: the full restaurant, Swift, opened a few months back (the hotel will open soon), so you can continue to dine on artisanal fare while gazing at the winter wonderland outside.
