Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, presented by The Valley Table magazine, returns for its 10th event from March 10th to the 23rd, 2014.

Nearly 200 restaurants from the region’s seven counties of Westchester, Rockland, Dutchess, Putnam, Orange, Ulster and Columbia will participate in the two-week dining experience.
“We’re thrilled to have nearly 200 restaurants participating in this spring’s Hudson Valley Restaurant Week,” said Janet Crawshaw, founder of The Valley Table magazine and Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. “With the region’s rich agricultural heritage, the Hudson Valley has become an epicenter of the farm-to-table concept. The dining industry has also proven to be a key tourism driver as last year the region’s restaurants grossed over $791 million in sales.”

About Hudson Valley Restaurant Week:
In 1996, Janet Crawshaw and Jerry Novesky took an eight-month sabbatical, traveling 35,000 miles across the country seeking authentic American experiences. They found that local farms, bakeries, fish markets, wineries and breweries were the key to understanding the country’s distinct regions. Inspired by their trip and the Chefs Collaborative, an educational sustainable food movement, the couple returned to their home in the Hudson Valley with a mission to awaken the region’s food consciousness. In 1998, they launched The Valley Table, a colorful quarterly, magazine that celebrates the agricultural heritage and cuisine of the region, leading the development of the Hudson Valley’s local food movement. Crawshaw and Novesky launched Hudson Valley Restaurant Week in 2006 with a distinguished board of advisors, including chefs, restaurateurs and tourism leaders. The two-week culinary event premiered with 70 restaurants. Today, with nearly 200 participating restaurants spanning seven counties it is among the largest Restaurant Week events in the country, involving farmers, growers, wine makers and chefs. Participating counties include Dutchess, Westchester, Columbia, Orange, Putnam, Rockland and Ulster.
