Bangers Gastropub - Rhinebeck, New York

Taking over a historically tricky spot in Rhinebeck, co-owners Vinnie Sassone and Colby Miller are tappinginto their strong Rhinebeck roots and offering crowd-pleasing pub fare at reasonable prices. The menu, as you’d expect from the name, is English comfort food: hearty, rich and simple, and the pair have taken pains to honor their Hudson Valley diners’ desire for seasonal and local ingredients. Produce, when possible, is from area farms, and Northwind Farms in Tivoli supplies the meats. There’s a full bar, and plenty of beer, about half of which feature New York State breweries (including picks from Peekskill Brewery and Elizaville’s Sloop Brewing Co.). Try the buffalo cauliflower appetizer ($10) and the Scotch egg ($10), the “real deal,” English style, as are the fish and chips ($18), salty and delicately fried. The Bangers and Mash ($18) with Miller’s housemade sausage, are a nice take on a classic dish. A starter salad from the specials menu, with beets, goat cheese and pumpkin seeds ($14), is a fresh, flavorful counterbalance to some of the heavier main course choices. There are other salad entrees including a smoked salmon quinoa with arugula, avocado, red onion and tomato ($14) if you’re not feeling as indulgent, but for the most part, the menu is not intended to kick off your cleanse. Fine by us — we ended our most recent evening there with a delicious bread pudding special and a Guinness float with Jane’s bourbon pecan ice cream ($8). There are $12 kids’ meals and a Sunday brunch, too. Read the full review here.
