To enjoy an elegant anniversary or just a casual dinner, consider the new outside terrace at 2 Spear Street, where you can look out onto the Hudson River from your table. Owner Angelo Rubino wanted to keep it “intimate and simple” with a “combination of New York City and New England feel.”
He improved the space by installing French doors to lead onto the terrace, where guests can sit at tables that face the river. This small restaurant offers a diverse menu for every appetite, including porterhouse steak, Chilean sea bass and half-roasted chicken.
Details: 2 Spear St. www.2spearstreet.com. 845-353-7733. Closed Monday and Tuesday. Open for dinner Wednesday-Sunday and?Sunday brunch.
