Crave is easy to find down a flight of stairs right from the Walkway. The service was incredible which added to the entire dining experience. The mussels appetizer is a great choice. The Tortellini dinner and nightly special Pork Short Rib made excellent dinner selections. They offer several speciality cocktails. Save room for their deconstructed chocolate torte or carrot cake desserts.

It was Hudson Valley Restaurant week and we were able to get a reservation for the first Saturday night. The restaurant is small and a bit noisy but we were anticipating a great meal so we waited patiently a few minutes in the bar while our table was cleaned off. There is a 3 course price fixed meal and I started with some delicious mussels in a wine and pesto sauce with some nice bread to soak it up. This was a very generous portion for an appetizer and I enjoyed it very much. The main course was even more generous and a unique pork schnitzel with mozzarella, red peppers and a poached egg to top it off. The pork was tender and the schnitzel breading was perfect. The cheese and the egg turned this into a very different and special dish. I was very full after that but had to have the salted caramel bread pudding with cookie crumbles for dessert which topped off this fantastic dinner. I highly recommend this great local restaurant for a very fine meal anytime of the year.

Tucked away just under the Walkway Over the Hudson, this small restaurant was a perfect place for Sunday brunch. With great cocktails and hearty egg based dishes (eg hash) we enjoyed a hearty breakfast and a few adult beverages which we walked off with a jaunt over the river on the walkway. Not to be missed. It’s a perfect launching pad for a visit to the FDR and Vanderbilt estates just down the road.

Crave has a “small plates” option and variety of choices. You cannot go wrong. They do fish beautifully as well as pastas and meats. The staff is very attentive and the overall service is good.

We entered Crave, spotted a table for two in the window, thought, “yes please”, and shock, there we were seated. We were offered a rose wine tasting list, this was a first, but instead we were persuaded to buy a bottle of deep red Californian for $50, fabulous. 3 courses of food later we both agreed that this was our best dining experience during a week of dining out in the Hudson Valley. The waiting staff were more than charming and the food v high quality and the recommended wine v special.
