THE ONLY THING MISSING from Peekskill’s events and entertainment venue known as The Factoria at Charles Point was an upscale seafood restaurant. Until now. Louie Lanza (Hudson Hospitality Group), John Sharp (Birdsall House) and Scott Vaccaro (Captain Lawrence Brewery), together poured their years of experience into Fin & Brew, a high-end, chef-driven eatery specializing in seafood and American comfort cuisine. Executive chefs Michael Anastacio and Ryan Swank, CIA grads and longtime friends, source locally whenever possible and make everything from scratch. Fresh seafood offerings start with a daily ceviche and raw bar (with East- and West Coast oysters); entrée highlights include savory Fishermen’s Stew, Braised Lamb Shank with Spiced Honey and Glazed Turnips, or the stunningly vibrant Ora King Salmon.
The “brew” of Fin & Brew includes the River Outpost Brewing Co., with eight lines of craft beer specially brewed to pair with seafood, along with a tailored wine list and high-end bar. Diners enjoy unobstructed views of the Hudson through floor-to-ceiling glass in the dining room, or from the new seasonal patio. “Whether you want fine dining or family fun, there’s truly something for everyone here,” Lanza says. So, after you’ve conquered the aerial ropes course or won laser tag, head on over for some celery cured fluke.
