In 2023, the Hudson Valley saw a wide variety of different new restaurants that opened their doors.

Recently, a New Paltz, NY fan favorite, Mexican grill, expanded and opened a second location. A Kingston, NY restaurant also opened a second location within Ulster County, NY as well.

Brazilian and ukrainian flavors spiced up the streets in Dutchess County, NY with their new location. An Italian eatery expanded to their second location within Orange County, NY.

As all of these new Hudson Valley businesses have brought something different to the table, the newest restaurant in our area is focusing on something different.
