Opened in July, Dolly’s is the newest venture of Shelley Boris and Kimball Gell, owners of Fresh Company, the Garrison-based catering company known for its commitment to local and sustainable food. The restaurant’s name is partially inspired by the movie Hello, Dolly!, which was filmed at Garrison’s Landing 50 years ago, but it also means fun times to Boris and Gell.
The all-day cafe/bar/restaurant features fresh, seasonal offerings from local farms, including Common Ground, Davoren Farm, Blooming Hill Farm, Four Winds Farm, Liberty Orchards and the Cold Spring Farmers’ Market.
The menu offers something for everyone—from raw oysters and spicy noodles to seasonal salads and burgers. The modern, artsy space features a custom-made flamed-birch bar made by local Heitman Builders, and its location at the Metro-North Garrison train station guarantees sweeping views of the Hudson River and West Point any time of year. Every second Thursday features “Music at Dolly’s,” an acoustic sing-along, starting outside around 8:30 pm, weather permitting.
