  • 1. Restaurant Kinsley

    At the Hotel Kinsley, Zak Pelaccio and Taavo Somer (of NYC’s iconic Freemans) have pulled off the seemingly impossible: They’ve managed to create a restaurant that’s buzzy, impeccably styled, and yet, somehow, feels laid back and unpretentious. And while the design gets all the Instagram love — the historic bank building has been completely renovated Read more...
  • 2. Duo Bistro

  • 3. Boitson’s Restaurant

    Although this local family chain is not strictly Thai, it does serve up a mean plate of pad Thai. Anyone with allergies or dietary restrictions will love Yum Yum, where customized eats are the name of the game. Where to Get the Best Thai Food in the Hudson Valley Photo by Sabrina Sucato
  • 5. Kingston Bread + Bar

    If ever there was a croissant we’d drive through a snowstorm for (yes, this is something our former dining editor actually did), it would be this one. Deeply caramelized layers of pastry form a shatteringly flaky exterior that gives way to an irresistibly buttery, tender interior that’s every bit as good as a trip to Read more...
  • 6. Le Canard Enchaine

    This slice of Paris in Kingston’s Stockade District boasts a romantic ambiance and continental flair. But it’s the food at this Zagat-rated bistro that customers call “magnifique.” Owners Jennifer Madden and chef/husband Jean-Jacques Carquillat offer a menu that includes award-winning French onion soup. Another favorite: duck with mixed berry sauce. Savor a French wine and Read more...

  • 9. Super Bowl Cuisine

    Set below Uptown in the somewhat-less-scenic Kingston Plaza, Super Bowl Cuisine’s cavernous space disguises the city’s best Chinese food. Whether you’ve come for all-you-can-eat Hot Pot or standard dishes, Super Bowl scores repeatedly when it comes to flavor and texture. The eggplant in garlic sauce is a special highlight.    
  • 10. The Anchor

    It looks like an ordinary bar from the outside, but inside, this Midtown staple is a restaurant that specializes in whimsically named, grass-fed burgers made with Kilcoyne beef. It also has the best homemade tater tots we have ever tasted, a rotating tap line of 20 local and craft beers — and is family friendly. Read more...

    11. Masa Midtown

    Now open in Kingston, Masa Midtown is a physical extension of the Mediterranean and Turkish catering company that owner Ozlem Oguzcan-Cranston has established over the past several years. Channeling her roots in Eskisehir, Turkey, she concocts delectable dishes like Turkish spiced marinated chicken skewers, stuffed peppers with pine nuts and currants, and yogurt panna cotta Read more...

  • 14. Turn Up the Beet

    Fresh juices, smoothies, acai bowls, and soups can be found at this health-conscious cafe.
  • 15. Local Artisan Bakery

  • “We wanted to have a name that’s easy to remember and that didn’t sound too ostentatious,” says Gabe Cicale, who co-owns Kingston’s Monkey Joe Coffee Roasting Company with his wife Kathy Nealis. “Some people are intimidated by specialty coffee because it’s viewed as trendy, but coffee in general is really not that sophisticated. Our name Read more...
  • 17. Ship to Shore

    Our favorites at Ship to Shore include specials like the three cheeseburger with pork belly and the Chef’s Burger with Hudson Valley foie gras. The secret behind the flavor-packed foie gras burger is in the preparation. “We caramelize it into the burger so that the fat of the fois gras melts right into the beef,” Read more...
  • 18. Lis Bar

    Polish-inspired small plates are the ethos as Jonathan and Patty Rich’s cozy Kingston spot with indoor and outdoor seating. Sip skin-contact wine alongside dishes like summer borscht, vegan pierogi, and kielbasa kebabs.
