“One of the 10 Best New Restaurants in the Hudson Valley.”—Hudson Valley Magazine
The can't miss restaurant for locals and visitors in New York's Hudson Valley region... whether just for a drink and snack in the comfortable tavern, or for dinner out on the wrap-around porch in summer or anytime in the elegant antique dining room, Madalin is a great upstate escape. A favorite with locals, visitors and an occasional celebrity like Sam Shepard and Jessica Lange.
Chef and CIA grad Michael Barillari works with local food suppliers like Montgomery Place and Migliorelli Farms to keep menus seasonal. This year the wrap around porch was enlarged and the scene in the summer is outside. Friday nights get a clubby group of table-hopping, fashionable weekenders and locals. Saturdays the food-savvy full timers predominate. From simple tavern favorites like salads, burgers and fish & chips, to full dinners like buttermilk fried chicken, stuffed rainbow trout and braised beef agnolotti, Madalin's Table is worth a trip from anywhere (see sample restaurant menu).
New York Times reviewer Emily DeNitto said, “Many good upstate restaurants have been compromised by inept service, but Madalin’s Table has a competent and friendly team. Even when the place gets crowded, the servers seem to be having fun at their jobs and are attentive without being oppressive.”
