Today kicks off  Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. There are many restaurants to dine at during the next two weeks and many of them will be serving Hudson Valley Wines.

One restaurant group that is a great supporter of Hudson Valley Wines is Xaviars, owned by Chef Peter Kelly.  Two of his restaurants participating in Restaurant Week are Restaurant X and The Bully Boy Bar and X20 Xaviars on Hudson.  You will be able to enjoy a prix-fixe lunch for $20 and dinner for $28.  A wine and dine visit a  must!

Hudson Valley wines to be paired with the wonderful dishes Chef Peter Kelly will be creating are; Awosting White from Whitecliff Vineyard and Winery, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Millbrook Vineyards and Winery and Cabernet Sauvignon from Brotherhood Winery.

It doesn’t stop at the the wine.  They have created three wonderful cocktails to be served using Hudson Valley wines and spirits.  If  vodka is your spirit, try the Valley Cosmo made with Tuthilltown Heart of the Hudson Vodka and Creme de Violette.  For rum lovers, try the River Rim Punch made with Tuthilltown Rum, Strawberry and Pineapple.  For the fans of bubbly, try the Hudson Bubble Cocktail made with Brotherhood Blanc de Blanc and St. Germain Liqueur, Blood Orange.

Cheers to the beginning of Restaurant Week!
