For being dropped out in the middle of the Catskill Park, there are some pretty amazing places to eat in our local area. If you’re on a day outing into the local area and need to eat out, we recommend the following places:
Breakfast/Lunch: The Phoenicia Diner on Rt. 28 outside town. This is not your ordinary diner. They are family-owned and feature farm-to-table, locally sourced menu items.
Dinner: Tavern 214 in Phoenicia is the best option right in Phoenicia; the Peekamoose on Rt. 28 north about 5 minutes north of Phoenicia is the best very local option; and New World Home Cooking outside Woodstock or Sushi Makio in Kingston are favorites, if you’re out for a local adventure.
“You have to experience it to believe the kindness & caring concern shown, not to mention mind-blowing teachings.”
“My favorite retreat center in the East coast. A real abode of the Dharma.”
“A Paradise in the mountains. Usually you expect basic accommodations for a Retreat Center, but the rooms are amazing.”
