Best Of Hudson Valley 2013

Here it is: The 27th edition of Best of Hudson Valley! Our readers responded to our online survey in droves, voting for their favorite local restaurants, wineries and bars; spas, salons, and barbers; boutiques, consignment shops, and sports stores



You called it: Our readers chose the grass-fed beef burger from Poppy’s Burgers & Fries in Beacon as the Valley’s best

The balloting began in February — and the votes poured in for months. Meanwhile, our staffers combed the region from Garrison to Guilderland, searching out the new and the noteworthy. The result: our 27th annual Best of Hudson Valley issue, 22 pages packed with primo places to eat (everything from bagels to beefsteak), drink (mojitos to Merlot), shop (consignments to couture), and spend your leisure time — more than 200 listings in all. Plus, we name names — of actors, politicians, golf pros, community do-gooders (some of whom aren’t yet old enough to drive). Read on to learn why the Valley is such a dynamic and entertaining place to be.
