New Restaurants and Hudson Valley Food and Dining News for September 2012

News and notes from the Valley’s dining scene for September 2012




Au revoir mon ami: The CIA’s flagship Escoffier Restaurant, with its classic French menu and white-glove service, closed its doors for good in July. The first of the culinary school’s public restaurants — it got its start in 1973 — the Escoffier will be completely revamped, and will reopen as the Bocuse Restaurant (after Frenchman Paul Bocuse, the CIA’s “Chef of the Century”) in early 2013... On a similar note: If you’ve recently tried to grab soba noodles on a weekday at Bull & Buddha, you’ve no doubt been disappointed. The Poughkeepsie hot spot has been shuttered Monday to Friday for most of the summer, while the owners worked feverishly on the new Asian-Latin fusion menu that premieres this month... Suds lovers in Greene County can now savor pub-style comfort food at Crossroads Brewing Company in Athens. The craft beer brewery recently installed a full kitchen, which serves burgers, pulled pork, mac and cheese and such... The “Agriturismo” dinners at Gigi’s Market at Greig Farm feature a three-course meal for $32. Dine family-style on dishes prepared with products sourced from farms in Dutchess and Columbia counties... New venture: 52 Main set up shop in Millerton in late spring. The Spanish-American tapas restaurant is owned by Eleanor Nurzia, who also runs Abruzzi Trattoria in Patterson... And this just in: Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, the region’s wildly successful discount-dining event that takes place each March, returns for an autumn encore performance on November 5-18.
