Meet HVRW Guest Blogger Karen Croke


Hi, I’m Karen Croke, an editor here at the Journal News and I’ll be covering a few of the restaurants here for Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, including Union Restaurant and Bar Latino in Haverstraw, 121 in North Salem, and Valley in Garrison.

I’ve been writing about for food for the Journal News and Rockland magazine since 2005. Given any opportunity, I’m more than willing to eat in the name of good journalism, so I’m really looking forward to this assignment.

Look for my posts later this month. For now, here’s a photo of Liz Johnson’s scallops from her trip to Union last year:
