Hudson Valley Restaurant Week returns Mon Oct 29-Sun Nov 11. Be sure to make reservations early. The two-week celebration of dining is an opportunity for chefs to flaunt their best fare, for diners to check out new restaurants and visit old favorites. Over 200 participating restaurants (15 in Orange County) offer special three-course lunch and dinner menus for a fraction of the normal price. No passes, tickets or coupons are required. Reservations are highly recommended.
