Looking for a relaxing way to ease back into the fall after these sun-soaked summer days? Mirbeau Inn & Spa Rhinebeck has you covered. The French-inspired resort, set to open in late September, offers locals and tourists repose from the hustle of daily life, on 2.8 acres of lush countryside.

This is Palmer’s first upstate New York dining establishment in his 30-year career. Foodies will recognize Palmer’s signature Progressive American cooking throughout Mirbeau: a style that couples eclectic, bold flavors with a profound infusion of classical French cuisine.

At the helm of Willow by Charlie Palmer is executive chef, Thomas Burke. Palmer hand-picked Burke, a Hudson Valley native, to help shepherd his latest venture. Burke is a rising culinary star in his own right, with experience at prestigious restaurants in San Francisco and New York City.
