Dreaming of the shore? Miss the salty air and fresh shellfish, but can't make the time to get away? It turns out you don't even have to leave the Hudson Valley to get good seafood anymore. Every weekend at Westwind Orchard, you can slurp oysters from Brooklyn Oyster Party's pop-up shop. The second annual Lobster Fest is taking place at Old Klaverack Brewery in Hudson on August 11, and that same weekend, The Amsterdam in Rhinebeck will inaugurate a new tradition: the midsummer clam bake.

For three nights, The Amsterdam will offer a special menu featuring clams, lobster, and corn-on-the-cob, with all the fixings (in addition to the normal dinner menu). Chef Alex Burger will do a traditional New England-style big pot clam bake, which will be served Friday through Sunday, August 10-12, from 5:30pm on. And in case you hadn't heard, their back patio is open with a full bar, bocci court, and picnic tables.

    Reynolds & Reynolds bills itself as a tap room. This conjures images of dark, wooden interiors, underground rathskellers, and male-dominated spaces of old. The reality of this woman-run Woodstock establishment is quite the opposite. Large windows bring in a generous amount of light, and clean lines delineate an open eating plan that fosters conversation. The light menu keeps the focus on beer, with brews constantly rotating through R&R's 10 taps.
