ELMSFORD, NY -- Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino joined Janet Crawshaw, publisher of The Valley Table magazine, and other sponsors at Captain Lawrence Brewing Company in Elmsford Tuesday to announce Hudson Valley Restaurant Week (HVRW).
During HVRW, which runs from March 9 to 22, diners will have the chance to sample incredible cuisine offerings from more than 100 restaurants sourced through local produce throughout Westchester.
"Hudson Valley Restaurant Week provides a wonderful opportunity for diners to visit Westchester County's exceptional restaurants," Astorino said. "Our chefs, who are at the forefront of the craft culinary movement, demonstrate their incredible talents using local fare during this event. 'Meet Me' in Westchester to try out excellent food at amazing prices – and invite your family and friends to come, too."
Captain Lawrence Brewing Company is an award-winning brewery and a pioneer in craft beer and small batch production. "We were pleased to kick off the Hudson Valley Restaurant Week celebration," said Scott Vaccaro, owner of Captain Lawrence Brewing Company.
HVRW celebrates top restaurants, giving diners the opportunity to enjoy exceptional dining at an approachable price point. Three-course, prix fixe dinners are $29.95 and lunches are $20.95 (plus beverage, tax and tip). Participating venues include well-known establishments such as Crabtree's Kittle House, and X2O Xaviars on the Hudson.

Noting the growth of Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, Crawshaw, the event founder, said, "Our mission is to support the Hudson Valley region, which has become an epicenter of the farm-to-table concept and is at the forefront of the craft food and beverage movement. In 2014 alone, $20 million in sales revenue was generated during Restaurant Week events—that's a major boost for local businesses, farmers, producers and purveyors."
