North Plank Road Tavern | Newburgh, NY

I love to tell people about hidden treasures in the Hudson Valley, especially great restaurants! Historic North Plank Road Tavern - Since 1801 is one of those special places.

The owners and hosts of North Plank Road Tavern are Tom and Denise Costa. They are wonderful people, friendly hosts, and utterly passionate about their guests , food, and history of the Tavern. (Visit the website for more information about the Tavern history).

I tell people that walking in the door (back door) is like walking into a time capsule…Alice in Wonderland Like (Because of the narrow hallway and old detail). The bar is warm and comfortable with a small lounge area...great for a group of friends to enjoy a cocktail. The restaurant is roomy , painted in Trompe-l'œil, and has a quaint outdoor patio in warmer months. We were even served our Cappuccino and dessert out front at a small bistro table…very nice!

Now to the food!! The best part. The food is absolutely amazing! Every dish we tried was better than the last. One of my favorites is the French Toast. It's a savory toast stuffed with goat cheese…OMG!!! (See below for more pics)

The kitchen is run by New Head Chef, Tibor Kogler who is passionate about fresh locally sourced food. He lives in the Hudson Valley and forages daily for special items such as fresh mushrooms (see pic he sent below). He also sources special ingredients from the best farms, including local organic growers. He is knowledgeable about food, and the proof is in the pudding!! (Or the mushrooms :)
