The Faces Behind HVRW

The Faces Behind HVRW

The premier Hudson Valley dining event of the year, Hudson Valley Restaurant Week (HVRW), is made possible by the HVRW Advisory Board, a group of influential leaders in the regional farming, food and dining scene. By lending their insight, knowledge and expertise to the ever-expanding, ever-evolving bi-annual event, they give farms, restaurants and diners the opportunity to explore and discover the latest in fine Hudson Valley cuisine.
