Frogmore Tavern has quickly become one of our favorite dining destinations when we are in Kingston. A talented kitchen and a well prepared American bistro style menu are the reasons to try it, and now you can add a new roof top bar to the attractions.
This new gem of a restaurant is going to be a little hard to find, but I promise you it’s worth the effort. The best way to experience the chef’s talents is to ask for Mike’s “Omakase”, or chef’s choice.
Pasta doesn’t get any more “homemade” than this. Right next to the bar, out in the dining room, a long wooden farm table was set with a stand mixer and pasta roller attachment. As I sipped on my wine, kitchen staff emerged to take turns using the roller.
There is a reason for the line out the door. Do not let the line dissuade you from choosing Hokkaido for dinner, despite the fact that there are two other sushi restaurants nearby. This is the place.
If you actually needed another reason to visit the New Paltz Water Street Market, you now have one. The market is located on the western edge of the village of New Paltz, overlooking the Wallkill River Bridge.

The restaurant’s name, and the sign that greets you in the bar, tells the story well – “Tutti a Tavola!” or “Everyone ~ At the table!”; mom’s call to dinner in every Italian household. Mangia!
