Monte’s Local Kitchen and Tap Room - Amenia, New York

The family that brought you Monte’s in Brooklyn is back with Monte’s in Amenia, offering a menu that’s more “Hudson valley farm to table” than red sauce over spaghetti. For seafood lovers, there is grilled swordfish paired with a fennel gratin, fennel orange salad and blood orange beurre blanc ($26). For carnivores, we recommend the a 10-ounce rib eye steak ($32) that comes with a potato pancake-like dish that’s well worth the calories. Two of the most frequently ordered dishes are the roast beet salad with a beet sorbet, feta and pistachio vinaigrette ($12.50) and the Hudson Valley kale salad with autumn squash and candied pepitas ($12). Our reviewer has been eating at Monte’s once or twice a week since it opened. Enough said.
