Restaurants in Catskills + Hudson Valley

Feel like a local at this red-clapboard locale, which has an outdoor patio; its pubby meals are filling, and the homey vibe is even more nourishing.

Everyone goes to Swoon, to the point where it’s impossible to imagine the town without its pressed-tin ceilings and tattooed and eyebrow-pierced waiters catering smartly to the patrons whose steady conversations thrum their way from Manhattan’s TriBeCa to Hudson’s Warren Street.

Mercato is an Italian gem, the dining room’s creamy walls full of everyday cheer.

The hearty restaurant is run by Brooklyn-born chef Devin Mills, who trained at New York's Le Bernardin and Gramercy Tavern. Wood-grilled steaks and 35 beers on tap draw a lively crowd.

The old-fashioned inn opened as the Hotel Monaquaga in 1928.
