Not in the mood for tacos or barbecue? Restaurants of all types are offering special menus at bargain prices. Here are a few of them:
Cathryn’s Tuscan Grill
91 Main St., Cold Spring. 845-265-5582
In honor of the Quadricentennial, Cathryn’s offers Sunday brunch for $20.09. Start your day with a glass of Champagne or a mimosa. Follow it with soup or salad and a hearty breakfast, Italian style: eggs with tomato-porcini mushroom sauce, smoked salmon and mascarpone cheese, or grilled New York strip steak (available 12-3 p.m.).
The Bird and Bottle Inn
1123 Old Albany Post Rd., Garrison. 845-424-2333
Every Thursday is “Warren’s Tavern Night” at this historic 18th-century inn (which was originally called by that name). The restaurant celebrates its opening year with a three-course meal for $17.61. Sample the inn’s seasonal tavern fare, such as corn crepes, beer-battered fish, and homemade pasta. Choose from a selection of delicious desserts, too.
The Big Easy Bistro
40 Front St., Newburgh. 845-565-3939
Is a trip to New Orleans too big for your budget? Then try the Big Easy’s dinner special for two: a bottle of red or white house wine and two entrées for $32. Favorites include grilled hangar steak with bourbon gravy, shrimp gumbo over rice, and chicken breast with peppers and Creole sauce. Available Sunday through Friday.
The Village Tea Room
10 Plattekill Ave., New Paltz. 845-255-3434
Serving up traditional Irish fare without the pub atmosphere, this cozy spot offers a nightly prix-fixe dinner for $22.

Steel House Restaurant
100 Rondout Landing, Kingston. 845-338-7847
Steel House offers a meal just like Grandma used to make — and at a price that Grandpa wouldn’t have minded paying. Diners can choose one appetizer, two entrées, and two desserts for just $30. The menu includes Italian classics like spaghetti and meatballs and chicken Parmesan. Beginning this month, they are offering family-style dining on Sundays, with a different entrée each week, for $10.95 a person.
