The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Find Heart-stopping Adventure in Kaaterskill Falls


2. Where to Eat

The "chandelier" and dining room at the Peekamoose Restaurant & Tap House.  

For breakfast anytime, stop into the boho Maggie’s Krooked Café (5778 Main Street, Tannersille; 518-589-6101). Order the Top Secret omelet (sh, it's pesto) with spicy home fries or the buttery, crispy-edged Old-World Potato Pancakes.

Across the street, sample some of the 300 beers and 100 cheeses at Last Chance Antiques & Cheese Café. Sop up the Emmentaler, Gruyère, and brandy-and-white-wine fondue with crusty blocks of French bread. Get some truffles, Belgian beer, and caramel turtles to go from the general store up front.

The Champagne cocktails and dirty martinis at Peekamoose Restaurant & Tap Room are alone worth the 23-mile trip to Big Indian. Chef Devin Mills, who honed his skills at Gramercy Tavern, serves a daily rotating menu created around the local food supply.
