10 Desserts to Satisfy Your Chocolate Craving This Restaurant Week


Craving chocolate? You’re in luck! This Restaurant Week, dig into these decadent desserts at participating restaurants around the Hudson Valley.

Blue Fox Motel


Sweet-tooth foodies in Sullivan County should make a reservation to dine at Blue Fox Motel for its decadent, gluten-free chocolate mousse alone. If you’re coming to dine from afar, consider booking a room at this new Catskills getaway.

Catskill Provisions Distillery


At Catskill Provisions, chocolate lovers can get their fix in the form of a solid or liquid. However, given the buzz around this distillery’s 100% raw wildflower honey-based spirits, we have to go with the chocolate martini made with Catskill Provisions vodka, chocolate liqueur, coffee liqueur, and oat creamer. Conversely, you could chow down on the homemade chocolate cake—good luck choosing!

Half Moon

Dobbs Ferry

Half Moon boasts one of the lengthier Restaurant Week menus, including two desserts for chocolate junkies. On one hand, you could go all in with the chocolate fudge brownie—served with caramel sauce and whipped cream—or you could opt for the ice cream sundae, wherein vanilla ice cream is covered with berries, pecans, and gooey chocolate sauce.

Heritage Food & Drink

Wappingers Falls

The farm-to-table fare at this Dutchess County eatery is delectable from appetizers to dessert, but we have a special place in our hearts for the chocolate cookie dough turnover. The warm puff pastry is layered with marshmallow, walnuts, and vanilla icing, making it the kind of dish you miss as soon as it’s gone down your gullet.

Limoncello at the Orange Inn


When a dessert is named after the feeling it elicits in its eater, you know it’s going to be good. Indeed, we are tempted by the chocolate temptation cake, and doubly so given it is prepared with cocoa from Ecuador, chocolate glaze, and hazelnut cream.

Otto’s Full Service


Did someone say souffle? A meal at Otto’s is best completed in the way of the melt-in-your-mouth chocolate souffle cake, served with fresh raspberries, vanilla custard, hot fudge, and stracciatella gelato. Needless to say, we are delighted by this newcomer to Restaurant Week.

Primo Waterfront


Do you prefer your sweets with a side of scenic Hudson River views? Primo Waterfront is the place to go for great grub and vistas to match. Conclude your Restaurant Week meal with a chocolate panna cotta—that’s an Italian confection made of sweetened cream thickened with gelatin—for a unique choco-centric dessert.

Restaurant X


Take advantage of Restaurant Week’s unbeatable prices by paying a visit to culinary extraordinaire Peter X. Kelly at Restaurant X. After stuffing yourself silly with course one and two, opt for the Belgian chocolate timbale, complete with a soft caramel center and crème anglaise. Talk about ending on a high note!

This Westchester restaurant offers a ton for gluten-free diners during Restaurant Week, and its chocolatey dessert offering is no exception. Chow down on the flourless chocolate cake, served with raspberries, strawberries, and a chocolate drizzle.

110 Grill

Albany, Middletown, and Poughkeepsie

As soon as you take your seat and scan the menu, the peanut butter cascade will call your name. To say it’s worth the wait is an understatement—the dessert comprises a warm fudge brownie topped with a peanut butter cup, fudge-swirl ice cream, house-made hot fudge, and Reese’s chunks.

Hudson Valley Restaurant Week is back this April 8-21!
