Talbott & Arding Cheese and Provisions
323 Warren St., Hudson Valley
If you're looking for a spot to pick up a good chunk of cheese and a crusty baguette, this is it. (At any given time, there's a selection of some forty to sixty cheeses from northwest purveyors like Jasper Hill Farm and Sugar House Creamery.) There's also a nice spread of freshly prepared salads, sandwiches, and baked goods that change often based on what's freshest locally. P.S. The mini loaves of ginger cake are topped with lemon frosting and make for a great road-tripping indulgence.
717 Warren St., Hudson Valley
Down the street from the Rivertown Lodge, Grazin’, opened by local farmer Dan Gibson of Angus Acres in nearby Ghent, is an organic burger joint in a throwback-y diner setting. The most popular burger (100 percent grass-fed beef) is the Uncle Dude, topped with house-made chipotle mayo, jalapeño relish, Hudson Valley cheddar, bacon from the farm, garden greens, and tomato (if they’re in season). For lighter appetites, there are smaller-sized portions, too.
