Earlier this week, The New York Times reported on chefs migrating north to the Hudson Valley. What’s the big draw? Farm-fresh ingredients. While some may argue this foodie trend is on its way out, it seems that New York City chefs disagree, firing back with chic eateries with produce-driven menus.

Diners are on board, as well. Just visit one of the farm to table restaurants in Westchester. Tables will be packed (just try not to fall in love with one of the temporary dishes that’s apt to disappear when ingredients are out of season).

Cooper’s Mill

Westchester Marriott, Tarrytown
