The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Admire Blazing Fall Foliage in Poughkeepsie


2. Where to Eat

Sample internationally inspired dishes and imported beer at the Artist's Palate.  

Scope out commissioned murals by New York graffiti artists like Ka, Two-Ill, and Deck on your way into Bull and Buddha, a swank Asian-fusion restaurant and lounge that opened late last month. The full sushi bar is supplemented by inventive concoctions like deep-fried, wasabi-laced tuna spring rolls.

Choose from around two dozen beers (including a hearty Belgian Lambic, $11) at the Artist’s Palate, an internationally inspired meat-and-seafood spot serving dishes ranging from jager schnitzel to Spanish-style octopus. Or opt for tapas and wine at Canvas, a sister restaurant opening next door later this month that will feature revolving art installations and live music.

Plan a date night at Crave, a low-lit bistro opened last December by Culinary Institute of America alums right next to the Walkway entryway. The seasonal spot pairs simply prepared seafood, poultry, and meat with decadent comfort foods like Cheddar grits and peanut noodles.
