Crabtree Kittle House’s new restaurant going into the Hudson Harbors space in Tarrytown is more than just a place to dine. There will also be a market, a wine and spirits store and a to-go menu that will include pizzas made in the restaurant’s wood-fired oven.
The restaurant’s menu will focus on Hudson Valley products — produce, meat, wine, spirits, beverages and dry goods — and the market will offer fresh fish, meat and produce; dairy products; artisanal breads and cheeses, and prepared foods to go.
“We are very excited about the project and to be working with National Re/sources and to be a part of the beautiful new Hudson Harbor community”, Glenn Vogt, who will be the managing partner of the new operation, said in a press release. “The Tarrytown location, just north of the Tappan Zee Bridge, is the gateway to the Hudson Valley. We want to be the showcase for local producers of food and beverage products and for the many farmers located throughout the Hudson Valley who are growing and raising produce and livestock naturally, organically and sustainably.”
From the press release:
The restaurant is projected to seat 150 guests with an outdoor terrace that can seat 100. It will feature a large full service bar, a wood burning pizza oven and a communal table.
The wine and spirits store will focus on local producers and others from around the world that are practicing the philosophy of bio-dynamic farming and viticulture – a natural, sustainable form of agriculture and a philosophy that has been a feature of the world-famous and award-winning wine program at Crabtree’s Kittle House for many years. “We feel that the world has been turning and heading in this direction for a while now. It’s all about eating better and healthier and leaving the earth in better condition after each harvest,” Vogt says, “and we want to be part of this exciting movement and provide an outlet to the producers and the consumers who feel the same way about it as we do.”
The projected opening date is Fall 2012.
I’ll keep you updated as the project develops.
