The Expert Guide to Eating & Drinking in the Catskills – Thrillist

The Catskills aren’t just beautiful; they’ve become the go-to countryside scene for some of New York’s coolest tastemakers. So to point you in the right eating and drinking directions, we hit up some in-the-know locals for their go-to craft breweries, boutique distilleries, awesome farm-to-table restaurants and more. 

8373 New York 28, Big Indian
“This is the go-to restaurant for special occasions and tasting menus. The chefs worked at top NYC restaurants, including Le Bernardin and Picholine. So you get quality food but at half the price and in a more relaxed setting. They’re known for their braised short ribs. The chef braises them for 14 hours so they are incredibly tender. My favorite when it’s in season is the beet tartare, a great choice for vegetarians. They also do great cocktails. Try the blood orange margarita. After dinner, save room for s’mores, which you can make around the outdoor fire pit.”
