The first time Data invited me down I whined. I didn't want to drive ALL THE WAY to Coxsackie on a "school night", so we made plans for a mid-afternoon meal last Sunday.
She wanted me to find out for myself what makes this small town so enchanting.
|A riverside park on the Hudson River|
|Cute little downtown storefronts I hope they preserve|
|Stone Mocha IPA and some mysterious clear stuff I didn't drink but I should have|
|Bar area, high tops with wide comfortable seating, including a foot rest|
There's lots of variety on the menu - a nice list of starters, crispy pizzas, mussels, mac n' cheese, pasta, roast pork, amazing desserts - American traditional, for the most part, with a few twists. I think they are doing some high end, creative things for your dollars, even when it comes to wings (blood orange and habanero!? - wow!). Most dishes are about $20 and under, steaks more, burgers (including bison and duck) start at $10 - very reasonable prices too. The entrees all start with salad - this one was simply dressed with a house vinaigrette.
|And turned - Lavender Balsamic Glazed Chicken|
|I didn't share more than a bite, it was so good!|
|Dessert - who can go wrong with PB and chocolate???|
There were quite a few folks calling ahead and picking up to-go dinners, as well as assorted pastry and a few high-end grocery items, so DB is doing what it can to give the community what it needs, including trivia night, if you are game!!!
|A few staples in case you forgot your truffle oil|
Downtown Bistro is only 30 minutes from downtown Albany so really, get outta town: buzz down, explore, take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy.
