As was discussed in the earlier thread, there is a second HVRW this year, in November. I happened to check their website tonight and they have the list of restaurants up, and several are already taking reservations thru Opentable.
I need to try Swift in Beacon this time, they're on the list for the first time, I believe. Hudson at Haymount House in Briarcliff Manor has their menu up already, and I was considering trying them until I saw they had an $8 surcharge for short ribs (someone might want to give them the heads up that this is NOT the way to put together a restaurant week menu with only two entree choices and putting a surcharge on one).
As in the past, I highly recommend Back Yard Bistro in Montgomery both for variety and quality. It's a tiny place so reserve early (but let me get my reservation first :-) ). I think I will go back to 42 for lunch, since I had a nice lunch there last time (and a not as great lunch when I went back the following week because I enjoyed it so much the first time). And of course I have to go back to North! And I hope that Valley will have a menu that is more interesting to me than in March, since I did not go then.
Tavern in Garrison does not appear to be on the list, which is odd since Valley is. McKinney & Doyle in Pawling is also absent.
Post your suggestions of great places you've tried in previous HVRW's.
