It’s time to head out of the city and explore the dining revolution taking place less than two hours from Manhattan. In this week’s The Edit we take a look at some of the top dining spots in Upstate New York. 


The Barn at Bedford Post Inn

As the name suggests, The Barn at Bedford Post Inn provides for a casual-rustic dining experience with a comfortable and familiar menu to match the atmosphere. Located an hour outside of New York City, The Barn is a reliable stop for the lunch and brunch crowd seeking to satisfy their craving for a classic tuna melt or Caesar salad. Not to worry for those who seek something a bit more on par with the current food trends, we recommend the Kale salad with faro and delicata squash.

The Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean Georges

Many describe Bedford, New York as a rustic-chic escape for the busy New Yorker, and no restaurant embodies this sentiment more than The Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean Georges. Diners visiting this restaurant for lunch or dinner can expect what the renowned Jean Georges is known for: simple ingredients that are masterfully prepared and combined in a way that is refreshing yet familiar enough to appeal to even the picky eater. This is exemplified by the salmon entrée finished with truffle vinaigrette; a familiar fish that is taken to a more complex degree with the addition of an ingredient that is perhaps the epitome of the 5th taste, umami.

Farmer and the Fish

Farmer and The Fish, situated in the quaint town of North Salem, New York, is a haven for fish lovers. The restaurant offers a variety of seafood and serves their cuisine in a farmhouse built in the 1800s, drawing attention to their authenticity and commitment to sustainability. It is no surprise that their produce comes from their very own farm. The name might sound familiar to some, as Farmer and The Fish recently expanded into the heart of the New York City metropolis. The restaurant is soon to open another location in Hudson, New York, which will be situated on a picturesque waterfront property directly on the Hudson. The menus across the restaurants are very similar, and we recommend the spinney creek steamers! In the summer, it feels a clambake!

Fish and Game

The Hudson Valley is a gem in and of itself. Located just miles outside of the hustle and bustle of New York City, the region is best known for its scenic views, vibrant antique scene and quaint bed & breakfasts. But rest assured, the farm-to-table cuisine in this urban oasis is nothing to joke about. For the best dining experience in the Hudson Valley, we recommend a visit to Fish & Game. The restaurant serves a regularly changing à la carte menu that features local protein and produce alike.  **The restaurant is closed until March 30, 2017.

If you’ve seen Netflix’s hit documentary series “Chef’s Table”, then the restaurant “Blue Hill at Stone Barns” is sure to ring a bell. If not, well, you’re in for a treat. Located just 30 miles outside NYC, Blue Hill at Stone Barns is best known for its farm-to-table cuisine and mission to create a consciousness about the effect of everyday food choices –  Celebrity Chef, Dan Barber, is just the cherry on top. The restaurant sources, serves, and sanctifies local Hudson Valley ingredients with three different “multi-taste” menus featuring the region’s best offerings – from poultry to produce.
