Where to Dine Vegan During Hudson Valley Restaurant Week


Hudson Valley Restaurant Week (October 30 – November 12) 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.

1839 Restaurant & Bar


Right next to America’s oldest winery, you’ll find Orange County’s 1839 Restaurant and Bar on Brotherhood Plaza Drive. For Restaurant Week, this joint serves delicious vegan offerings for dinner for $44.95 from Thursday through Saturday. The three-course meal starts with a pumpkin enchilada, made with roasted pumpkin, sweet corn, and black beans in a flour tortilla covered with a braised tomatillo emulsion, then moves onto the main course, which is a fall harvest penne, complete with sauteed autumn vegetables, blistered cherry tomatoes, and baby spinach in a roasted pepper and sweet basil pesto. Don’t skip on the dessert, which is a selection from the restaurant’s daily offerings.

For mains, guests can indulge in a hearty helping of a roasted autumn vegetable salad with spiced fregola and crispy sage. Maria Restaurant also has a number of vegetarian-friendly dishes on the menu, including a delicata squash risotto with smoked mozzarella and roasted pumpkin gnocchi with gorgonzola cream and crispy zucchini.

For waterside views and live music, search no further than Woodstock’s Millstream, which specializes in locally sourced casual and elevated dining. During Restaurant Week from Tuesday through Sunday, diners can experience a three-course meal at Millstream for $29.95 for lunch or $44.95 for dinner. For an appetizer, try the crispy Brussels sprouts with an apple cider glaze, candied walnuts, and crispy shallots, then move onto the main course for a colorful spiced risotto with ancho chili and purple cauliflower. Even the dessert at Millstream is on theme, so save room for the rich vegan chocolate pot de crème with creamy peanut butter caramel.

Tango Cafe’s cozy atmosphere and upscale cuisine welcome locals and visitors alike to its Sullivan County location. Diners come for the open kitchen and stay for the full bar, where classic cocktails like negronis, fuzzy navels, and pina coladas excite. This locale is on the more affordable side for Restaurant Week, since you can get lunch for $24.95 or dinner for $29.95 from Thursday through Saturday. Start off with a mixed green salad topped with diced tomato, corn, black beans, and a cilantro vinaigrette (just ask for no cotija cheese for the vegan option), and add avocado if you’re in the mood for something rich. For the main dish, the grain bowl is a healthy and filling option with black rice, quinoa, corn, black beans, diced tomatoes, sauteed garlic, and spinach.



Originally an 1800s church, Terrapin offers a dining experience like no other with a modern dining room with tall arched windows and a bistro and bar area that’s perfect for lunch dining. At two price points, lunch at Terrapin is very affordable for $29.95 while dinner is a little more upscale at $44.95. Both meals start with a mesclun salad with balsamic vinaigrette or the golden nugget squash soup with coconut milk and lemongrass. For lunch, try the green wrap which includes avocado, grilled corn, pico de gallo, chickpeas, and cilantro, all wrapped in a large collard green leaf. Switch it up for dinner and order Uncle Vinny’s special rigatoni, which can be made vegan by substituting the chicken for tempeh, with spinach in a tomato-sherry sauce.

Chef-inspired farm-to-table cuisine is sourced locally to create the delicious dishes at Woodstock’s Bear Café. Dine here for an evening meal Wednesday through Sunday for just $39.95 to experience delicious seasonal vegetables. Starters include baby mustard greens served with a roasted shallot vinaigrette, pistachios, and cherry tomatoes (just order without the farmers cheese) or try the roasted Brussels sprouts with caramelized onions, hazelnuts, and roasted garlic. The main course is a flavorful grilled graffiti eggplant in a smoked pomodoro sauce with squash noodle, fennel, and basil, and the lemon-thyme risotto with roasted baby beets, grilled leeks, and mascarpone is a delicious vegetarian option.
