Grab a soup and sandwich for lunch, or wait for the sophisticated wine-pairing menu for dinner at the Brown Dog Café & Wine Bar (2409 Main St.; 518-523-3036). The duck quesadillas are excellent, and the rear tables overlook Mirror Lake.
For a blowout celebration, head to the best upscale restaurant in the region: Kanu. Chef Brian Moyers has serious downstate experience from places like Nobu and Tribeca Grill. But at Kanu, he shies away from the rarefied and obscure, preparing hearty but complex dishes like Duo of Long Island Duck and a grilled rack of lamb perfect food for the Great Camps atmosphere of the stunning dining room.
