“The Hudson Valley is really special in that it has so many great farms and great restaurants and you don’t have to go into the city and spend a fortune for a meal. You can stay closer to home and eat at really amazing restaurants,” said Janet Crawshaw, Valley Table Publisher.

Restaurants participating in Restaurant Week are offering a three-course prix-fixe lunches at $20 and dinners at $28.

“There are a number of great-sounding new restaurants, Day Boat Cafe in Irvington and Fig and Olive in Scarsdale, so people are going to have a lot of reasons to traverse from one end of the region to the other,” said Crawshaw.

Seven counties are participating this year: Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Ulster, Orange, Rockland and Columbia.
