My wife and I are headed up for some wine-trippin'. After extensive research on both Chowhound and other sites, I've come up with a short list of dinner stops. However, since we've never been up there (coming from out of state), we can't commit. So I'm hoping you NY Chowhounders can help out.
We're staying in Kingston and are planning on visiting at least Whitecliff, Rivendell, BenMarl and Millbrook wineries over the Oct. 10-13 weekend, along with a few more, as well as spending some time in Rhinebeck ad New Paltz.
Our restaurant list includes: The Red Onion in Woodstock; Le Canard Enchaine and Elephant in Kingston; Le Petit Bistro, Calico, Sabrosa and Terrapin in Rhinebeck; Harvest Wine Bar in New Paltz; and Cafe Le Beux in Millbrook. I know these vary to a degree on price/food/atmosphere, but the overall value and experience wil make us happiest We also have a list for breakfast/lunch, but we'll deal with those on the fly (though I have high hopes of making it to Sweet Sue's in Phoenicia).
Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks much in advance.
