The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Capture Nature in the Catskills


2. Where to Eat

The dining room at the Peekamoose Restaurant & Tap Room.  

Peekamoose Restaurant & Tap Room is worth the twenty-minute drive from Roxbury — chef Devin Mills is an alum of Le Bernardin and Gramercy Tavern.

Local restaurants often close for winter, but there’s always a lively scene at Fred's (60 Main St., Stamford, N.Y.; 607-652-2265). The owner (not named Fred) describes his cuisine as “progressive American,” which up here means crab-stuffed rainbow trout.

The Lucky Dog Organic Farm (35796 State Highway 10, Hamden, N.Y.; 607-746-8383) still grows crops out back, but now you can eat chicken potpie and sweet-potato-peanut soup in the café before shopping for Victorian dresses and sixties-era sweaters in the general store.
