"Brand new restaurant and definitely far more hype than anything. I never right bad reviews, but feel obligated here. Service was fine, but the seats was way too cramped, and servers were pushing past (and pushing me in) in order to access other tables. Place was so loud with bad acoustics, everyone seemed to be talking loudly and it was difficult to hold a conversation. The house salad with grilled shrimp was decent and unique, while the steak fajita was literally nothing special and the accompanying refried beans and rice were the blandest beans/rice I've ever had. We got our salad comped because they didn't know how to best make it up to us for the worst seating in the house, and I heard multiple tables around us discussing the tight awkward seating. I won't be back, and best of luck, Javelina."

Inspired on the thousands of cebicherias found throughout Peru, La Mar Cebicheri­a Peruana, was created as an attempt to globalize and enshrine one of the best guarded treasures of Peruvian cuisine: cebiche, Peruvian seafood and the scenery created to enjoy them, the Peruvian style cebicheria.

Blowfish Sushi is an eclectic sushi bar and restaurant that serves both modern and traditional sushi, and sashimi, as well as salads, cooked appetizers and special desserts. The menu style is Asian Fusion and emphasizes clean, pure healthy foods. We have an extensive list of imported sakes and our own original line of sake cocktails. Our upbeat and unforgettable atmosphere is one of a kind, creating an atmosphere of excitement. Our restaurant and sound system have been specially created to give the impression of "feeling the sound" while allowing conversation to be acoustically transparent. We continuously show Japanese animation films for your viewing pleasure. Colorful original production cells, used in the making of various Anime feature films, decorate the walls. These cartoon images are considered an art form in Japan and are extremely popular in many countries. Come Eat to the Beat! Blowfish Sushi.

Foragers brings clean and ethical food of the highest quality to our customers by shortening the distance between farm and fork. We believe that it is worth going the extra mile to find foods that are healthy for human, animal, and land. We do so by bringing in many local products on our own distribution truck that delivers the best of the Hudson Valley weekly. We also grow our own vegetables and raise laying hens for eggs at our market garden in upstate New York. Since we opened in 2005, we have found many incredible people and products! We are happy to share our discoveries with you in our grocer, wine shop and restaurant.

Built around a California-style culinary philosophy that takes heavy cues from the seasons, Upland balances a familiar rusticity with a smart global approach, all enhanced with a New Yorker’s eye for detail. The restaurant offers an artful array of starters, entrees and sides, each plate accented with chef Justin Smillie’s enticing and urbane touch. The wine program, overseen by beverage manager Chantelle Pabros, matches the excitement coming out of Upland’s open kitchen, with a worldly 500-bottle list and a clever by-the-glass selection that’s remarkably food-friendly.

"You must have the brussel sprouts, and the beef tartare. I had the pappardelle, which I thought was really hearty and well-seasoned. My partner had the branzino, which was lovely, and very soft, delicate and light. Dessert was the caramel pudding with ginger icecream which was fantastic! Very extensive and impressive wine list."
