Dear Friends & Family

from the publisher


Welcome to yet another installment of the Fish & Game Quarterly.

For those of you who were paying attention, yes, we did miss an installment as we were working tirelessly at promoting our new book and running restaurants and enjoying the summer and it all seemed to get away from us. And, when I refer to “us,” I’m referring to a pretty small team… fortunately, we’re not too hung up on schedules or deadlines or consistency when it comes to our literary outpourings. full post>


The taste of a place—terroir in the wine world, where as Zak discusses in his letter unadulterated grape juice can have an uncanny ability to refract the essence of a parcel of land—can be a tricky thing to pin down in food. I took my son to Italy at the end of the summer, for two weeks, and needless to say we did some eating. He had his first carciofo alla giudia at my old local in the Jewish ghetto, even though I told him on the plane that the season was over so he wouldn’t get to; they bought artichokes from Northern France and so we ate them.   full post>

Thanksgiving at Fish & Game


Thanksgiving will soon be here and the fires will be blazing and our cozy little restaurant will be warm and ready, once again, to host our legendary Thanksgiving-day feast!

It’s an all you can eat and drink kind of holiday! And, as many of you know, we celebrate it in a very traditional manner, with all the trimmings…and plenty of good wine!

The Traditional set menu is $150 per person (service included) and we will be taking reservations from 3:30pm-6:30pm on Thanksgiving Day (November 23rd).

Please email or Call 518.822.1500 for reservations.

As our friends know, we love to roast birds on our fireplace rotisserie in the dining room, and, even if you can’t join us for the Thanksgiving Holiday, you can still enjoy our wood oven roasted turkeys and all the trimmings at home. Our take-home Thanksgiving meals have become an incredibly popular way for friends and family to enjoy some of the Hudson Valley’s finest products, many cooked over wood fire, in the comfort of their own homes.

$350 for a take-away Thanksgiving dinner for 4ppl.

$60 for each additional person.

Takeaway order deadline is Sunday, November 19th.

Again, please email or Call 518.822.1500 for reservations.
