Where to Dine Vegan During Hudson Valley Restaurant Week


Hudson Valley Restaurant Week (November 7-20) is the culinary event of the season for foodies all around the Hudson Valley—including vegans.

When we say that Hudson Valley Restaurant Week is for everyone, we really mean it. That includes vegans, of course, meaning there are prime options for the herbivores among us to enjoy all Restaurant Week long. From vegan chicken pot pie to stuffed acorn squash, here are a few of the most exciting vegan options around the region.

An Artistic Taste

This restaurant opened its doors in July of 2020 and immediately became one of our favorite foodie destinations in Orange County. The Restaurant Week menu ($44.95 for three courses) puts its “artistic taste” on full display with a number of tempting dishes, especially for vegans. To start, look to the vegan dumplings stuffed with carrots, scallion, cabbage, chef soy, and lemongrass pesto. Follow that with a plate of coconut curry chickpeas along with scallions, ginger, and jasmine rice.

Brooklyn Organic Kitchen


As vegan diners scan the Restaurant Week menu at Brooklyn Organic Kitchen, they won’t find the usual symbols—a small “V,” or a leaf emoji—that signal which dishes are safe to eat. But when they finally reach the bottom of the pre fixe menu ($29.95 for lunch, $44.95 for dinner), they will clutch their pearls—fake, ethically sourced pearls, that is—as they read the note that says all dishes can be made vegan. That’s right: Every single dish from Brooklyn Organic Kitchen can be ordered traditionally or totally plant-based—even the meatloaf melt and chicken pot pie. What’s more, there are three distinct menus for brunch, lunch, and dinner, meaning you must dine here at least three times to get the full Restaurant Week experience.

City Winery Hudson Valley


While there are two delicious vegan appetizers on City Winery’s Restaurant Week menu—a ginger honeynut squash bisque and the roasted pumpkin and garlic hummus—we want to put a spotlight the vegan-ness of the wines. Did you know not all wines are vegan? Luckily, apart from the reserve Chardonnay, all vino at City Winery is vegan, so sip to your heart’s content!

The Dutch

This Restaurant Week, stop by The Dutch for lunch ($24.95) and scarf down three courses of all-vegan goodness. Kick off your meal with Turkish flatbread served with olives, hummus, and dipping oil, then order the roasted vegetable stuffed smoked eggplant with romesco. Lastly, for a sweet conclusion, try the dark chocolate hazelnut tarte.


White Plains

Vegans could dine at Greca at lunch and dinner, ordering different dishes at each meal; plant-based diners know how rare that is, especially for a prix fixe menu. Start off your lunch ($29.95, available Monday through Thursday) with beets skordalia—that’s a thick purée made of garlic—and fava with pita. Follow that up with the vegan Greek salad or, if you dine at dinnertime ($44.95, available Sunday to Thursday), savor in the stuffed eggplant. Needless to say, no visit to Greca is complete without an order of baklava, which the restaurant prepares in traditional and vegan varieties.

Stone House Tavern

This tavern in Ulster County is one of the coziest little eateries in all the Hudson Valley and, as luck would have it, Stone House serves up some of the most impressive vegan food of Restaurant Week. Starters off the prix fixe menu ($39.95, available noon to 9 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday) include a salad with elderflower liqueur-poached pears, baby spinach, roasted beets, candied walnuts, herbed goat cheese, and an apple cider honey vinaigrette as well as crispy eggplant chips accented by onion jam, whipped sweet potatoes, fried sage, and truffle oil. When it comes time for the second course, vegans will delight in the stuffed acorn squash filled with onions, mushroom, tempeh, walnuts, cranberries, garlic, and sage. Finally, finish off a berry tart with vanilla cashew cream for dessert.
