Hudson Valley Restaurant Week Wrap Up


Well as it turns out, Hudson Valley Restaurant Week has been a huge success. So much so, that many restaurants are extending their menus. The list includes such heavyweights as X20 and 42, so check out to see which ones are still going on. Everyone’s extending for different lengths of time, so you should call individual restaurants to find out what their plans are.

Couple more things. If you fill out a survey about your experiences during HVRW, you will be entered to win a $500 shopping spree at Whole Foods Market. Click here to go to the survey.

And — don’t forget my contest: I’ll choose my two favorite comments on HVRW restauarnts to win a pair of tickets to the Greater New York Wine & Food Festival in Tarrytown on May 15 and 16. Click for more info on that.

I’ve got one last video for you — a look back at all the fun we’ve had these past two weeks. I’ll post that tomorrow. Meantime, here’s a look at all the Small Bites coverage. Click away — and see you next year!
