If you’ve driven on Route 209 near the Saugerties exit, you’ll surely have spotted Fred’s Place across the grassy verge, although how to actually get to it remains a mystery to many. “I know. We’re putting up signs with arrows,” says the owner, Cynthia Wadnola.
For many years, the sign on the building was “Cynfre’s,” Cynthia’s well-regarded bakery and catering company that she closed in 2000. Fred’s Place, which is now four years old, is named for her husband, a retired naval lieutenant commander whose 26 years in the service you’ll see reflected in pictures of ships and other memorabilia that makes up much of the restaurant’s decor. (Nowadays, you’ll find him a genial host, tending bar.)
