As MH Reed observed in the New York Times in February 2008, “Red Hat is so close to the river in Irvington that when the wind is up and the waves slap the shore, their icy spray covers the riverside path to the restaurant.” The two level, French bistro-inspired eatery is housed in a hundred -year -old factory building that has been transformed to feature an uninterrupted, 180 degree view of the river from the main and loft dining levels. Guests will enjoy the seasonal, Hudson Valley ingredients, as well as French bistro classics.

Established in 1983, Chamard Vineyards, is one of the Connecticut Wine Trails founding fathers. Tucked between the Long Island Sound and the Connecticut River, Chamard enjoys a unique marine micro-climate ideal for growing European Vinifera vines such as Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Pinot Noir. To produce “French Inspired Wines from the Connecticut Shoreline” has been Chamards mission from the start. As a farm, Chamard honors agriculture by partnering with fellow growers and producers to pair food with wine in celebration of Connecticut’s local gastronomy. <br /> <br />Visit the Vineyard. Enjoy a Wine Tasting in the Tasting Room. Listen to Music in the Barn. Have Lunch in the Bistro. Singer Songwriter Series every Friday & Saturday evening 5 - 8pm. Wine Tastings are $15 dollars and include a Riedel glass. No outside food or drink allowed on the property. We offer the complete experience.

"We had a lovely meal there a few months ago, and were really looking forward to returning, but yesterday was a big let-down. The place was way over-crowded and it seemed like they had several events going on. The service was marginal. They forgot one of our dishes and then made an excuse. We waited a really long for the food to be served - at least 30 minutes. When it arrived, the food was average. A croque madame sandwich was cold in the middle. Perhaps they have gotten too popular for their own good since they don't seem to be able to handle it. It was difficult to even get out of the parking lot after lunch since there was a line of cars waiting to get in."
