Hudson Valley Restaurant Week 2011: Meet Guest Blogger George Distelhurst


Hi, my name is George Distelhurst, I live in Yorktown Heights with my 2 sons and I’m a big time foodie.  Its probably a good thing that I’m also a big time workout nut or I would also be just big! My serious journey down the path of food-dom began when I started dating my girlfriend Brett and we would set off on day trips to Manhattan on an all day food walk-a-bout… or pig out depending on who you tell. Together we have been to, visited and conquered close to 250 restaurants (yes we do keep track of them all) in just 3 years on both the East and West coasts. While we may not always agree on who picked the best entree for dinner (its usually me!) the one thing we do agree on is that there is always room for dessert.

This is my first time blogging for HVRW and I am both excited and honored to be a part of it. (Thanks Liz!) I’m looking forward to the to the seven new restaurants Brett and I have lined up (yes, she’s blogging too!) in addition to the two repeat visits to places we both love and we will do our best to offer up our view of what we feel makes the Hudson Valley restaurants some of the finest. And yes, my entree will still be the best! Sorry Brett! 😉

That’s it for me, wishing the best to all my fellow bloggers, see you at the table! Bon apetit!
