Flatbread and Filet Mignon @ Miss Lucy’s Kitchen

90 Partition Street, Saugerties, NY

Miss Lucy wants you to come back many times, at different seasons, to her kitchen. This is the only way to taste the different dishes prepared with local and and seasonal ingredients.

The flatbread is an enjoyable appetizer that can be shared. Different types of flour contribute to the soft and grainy texture of the bread. The Italian-style sausage is spread generously on the top. The meat is not excessively fat and it is ground in medium-small chunks an mixed with a good amount of pepper. The addition of other ingredients – arugula and cheese – strikes a good balance and recalls lovely memories of an Italian “piadina”.

The filet mignon is pure tenderness with a blast of green pepper flavor. The fork always aims at the perfect combination of meat, sauce and green pepper. The new fingerling potatoes and the crispy asparagus are a good side that supports with moderate flavors the rich main course.

Nice job, Miss Lucy’s! See you again, in a different season.

 

French Toasts @ Saugerties Lighthouse

Saugerties Lighthouse, Saugerties, NY

The best place for a breakfast in Saugerties is available only to the  lucky guests of the lighthouse. The lighthouse keeper should be awarded a galaxy of stars and complete set of forks on the preparation of french toasts and pancakes. The experience is further enhanced by the location. The kitchen of the lighthouse is restored and furnished with original items from the 1930s, bringing you back to a time when this part of the Hudson river was bustling with barges and boats.
