Hudson Vally Restaurant Week kicked off yesterday with a luncheon at John Lekic’s Le Express Bistro in Wappingers Falls. The two-week long event is sponsored by Valley Table Magazine. Janet Crawshaw and Jerry Novesky, publishers of Valley Table, were in attendance along with Dutchess Country Executive Marcus Molinaro, and Dutchess Country Tourism Director, Mary Kay Vrba. Marc and Mary Kay were called upon to don aprons and serve the first meal. Mary Kay did very well.
Dozens of the area’s culinary enthusiasts were in attendance to sample the fare and enjoy the festivities. You can watch a video of the kickoff luncheon here. You can also check out all of the participating restaurants and make reservations for Restaurant Week right here on The Valley Table’s website.
