If you haven't already, make your reservations now. Hudson Valley Restaurant Week runs from March 18 until March 31. It is a time when many participating restaurants offer prix fixe lunches for $20.95 and dinners for $29.95.
The annual event, in it's sixth year, entices people to venture outside of their local areas to try new restaurants. It also brings tourists from outside the region to Hudson Valley towns and cities to see what they have to offer. Last year, the event drew more than 200,000 people to 160 restaurants.
