Quick hits in Newburgh this weekend:

Amistad 74 Mill Street (845) 569-7116 grocery in front, caverous eatery in back. Did not try food, but looked real good. Decent fresh pan dulce in front.

Uriel Tacos 49 Mill St. just up the block from Amistad. Looks bright and cheerful. Very good vibe. This may be "the place".

El Bandolero 466 Broadway (845) 561-5390 drab american/mex coffeeshop. Deserted, depressing, shallow Mexican menu. I stuck with my intuition and waited 20 minutes for my carnitas sopes (a good sign...you don't want fast sopes). They were awfully good.

Barnstormer BBQ (Route 17K Ames Plaza). Pulled pork decent but tough. Sauce toothache sweet, though. Corn bread an abomination: undercooked and super sweet. Ugh. [Edit: woops, this is in Highland Falls, not Newburgh]
