Argh. Did some brief chowhounding around Rhinebeck and forgot to take notes. Now I can't remember a single restaurant name or street name. If I could get just one clue, I could triangulate all, but I lack that clue. Can anyone help?
I was downtown in Rhinebeck. There was an area that was as close to a late-night nexus as Rhinebeck gets. On one side of the street was restaurant, rather bricky, with happening bar. On the other was a very modern stylish glassy restaurant with outdoor tables and a handsome bar with Sierrra Nevada Pale Ale (you see, I do remember the important things!). Further up the block was a whacky newish place that looked like a medieval castle, witha menu of mostly small plates... fusiony food. very very happening late night scene. smelled like ok food.
