We don't hold it against our friends at Valley Table magazine that Restaurant Week is actually a fortnight (November 3 to 16)—that just gives us an extra week to eat at the 200 restaurants between Westchester and Albany participating in this culinary adventure. We'll be taking advantage of the three-course prix fixe lunch ($20.95) and dinner ($29.50) menus at some of favorite restaurants (Terrapin, The Would, Henry's at the Farm) and trying out some new ones we've been meaning to get to (Frogmore Tavern, Valley Restaurant at the Garrison, Bluestone Bistro). Chefs focus on producing meals made with local products, drawn from the 2,500 farms in the seven-county Restaurant Week area. Hudsonvalleyrestaurantweek.com
