Top 4 Restaurants for Foodies in NY


You don’t have to go into the big city to get the full New York food experience. There are plenty of mouth-watering restaurants north of the Big Apple. Once you knock out your to-do list at StorQuest in Thornwood, treat yourself to any one of these must-try foodie spots.

Gracie’s, Leeds, NY

This farm-to-table dream is worth the trek out to Leeds. Everything at Gracie’s is fresh and organic. Their menu is a no-nonsense, straight-to-the-goodness diner spread. Sourced locally and made fresh every day, their chefs – who used to work out of a food truck – create drool-worthy dishes like a fried green tomato BLT and fried chicken and waffles.

Gaskins, Germantown, NY

Venture just a few miles south of Leeds and you’ll happen upon Gaskins in Germantown, NY. Owned by a husband and wife team, this gem truly makes you feels like you are a neighbor popping over for dinner. Their menu holds onto that same charm – all of their ingredients come from nearby farms and are curated with care. Make sure not to miss out on the fish tacos with spicy mayo and the housemade ice cream!

Brasserie 292, Poughkeepsie, NY

Making our way closer to Thornwood is Brasserie 292, nestled in the historic Main Street district of Poughkeepsie, NY. With local ingredients and a wide selection to choose from, you can’t go wrong with this beautiful French diner. Pork tenderloin with bacon-braised Brussels sprouts, a burger with melted brie, maple-oatmeal pancakes – it’s hard to not get excited when looking at the menu. 

Good Food, Briarcliff Manor, NY

Well, their name says it all –  you won’t find anything but great food at Good Food in Briarcliff Manor, NY. If you’re a fan of crepes, this is the spot for you. From caramelized onions, olives, and farmer’s cheese to sweet dulce de leche, they go all out here. Trust us, this hidden gem is the kind of place that you want to keep quiet – it’s that awesome.
