5 Great Things We're Eating and Drinking in January
Our food editor Steve Fowler reveals what to order in the Hudson Valley this month.
Sunday Night Special at Canoe Hill
3264 Franklin Ave, Millbrook, 845.605.1570
Canoe Hill’s pristine reputation needs no introduction, but its weekly winter specials have us thankful for the cold weather, particularly when Sunday night rolls around. For $50, diners can enjoy a salad and beef bourguignon for two over a bottle of Bordeaux. Mon dieu, what a delicious deal!
Bangers and Mash at The Rare Bit
23 Cedar St, Dobbs Ferry, 914.693.8000
Chef David DiBari’s newest restaurant is a gastropub serving “well prepared British fare.” It can be tough to find quality English cuisine outside of the Kingdom, but DiBari’s take on the classic dish doesn’t disappoint: Pork and sage sausage rest atop mashed potatoes and get a healthy coating of “lovely” gravy.
Macarons at Newburgh Flour Shop
109 Liberty St, Newburgh, 845.568.3400
Honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of Newburgh Flour Shop’s pastries, but who doesn’t love a well-crafted macaron? These light-as-air treats come in flavors like coffee caramel, chocolate, apple cider, and brown butter pumpkin (yes, you read that right). If you want to be sure they’re in stock, plan ahead by ordering a few (dozen) online and then pick them up in-store.

Salmon Causa Roll at Maura’s Kitchen
81-83 S. Broadway, Nyack, 845.535.3533
A traditional dish, causa honors Peru’s national pride: its 3,000-plus varieties of potato. At Maura’s in Nyack, causa — sometimes described as “Peruvian lasagna” — gets a modern interpretation in the form of a “sushi” roll: Smoked salmon rests atop a whipped potato and avocado roll, drizzled with red pepper and olive sauces. Who needs California rolls, anyway?
Pasta al Pomodoro at Cellaio Steakhouse
888 Resorts World Dr, Monticello, 845.428.7497
When Scott Conant makes a pasta dish, you know he’s going to do it right. At Cellaio Steakhouse, his new restaurant located at Resorts World Catskills, all of the pasta is made in-house. Conant’s signature sauce is pomodoro, a creamy tomato sauce smothering a gnarled knot of fresh, delicate spaghetti. So long, New Year’s resolutions!
