Spending some time w/my parents in the Poughkeepsie area over the weekend; staying at the local Marriott there. Mom tried to get a reservation at one of the CIA restaurants, but they were booked. Any recommendations for some fairly adventurous eaters, interested in high quality, nice ambience, interesting combinations. We don't mind paying for quality but aren't necessarily looking to break the bank ;-) Dad doesn't care for "cute food" (e.g., tiny portions). Nearly anything but Japanese. I hope this isn't too vague!
