I visit a friend in the Rhinebeck/Dutchess County area at least once a year.
Previously, we would spoil ourselves and have a nice meal at Another Fork In The Road. That restaurant closed unexpectedly during the spring. However, when one door closes, another one opens. We had a wonderful meal at The Amsterdam last weekend, when I was in Rhinebeck.
Housemade rosemary chips. Very crispy and perfectly addicitive.
Mushrooms with a soft egg.
Arctic char with fingerling potatoes, grilled bok choy, grilled scallions and green goddess dressing. In my previous post, I mentioned grilled scallions. This is what I was referencing. I could find no faults with this dish.
Someone at my table ordered from the specials menu, short ribs braised in red wine. Overall flavor was well received, but there was a comment that the ribs were not as fork tender as it should have been.
Honey cakes for dessert. They were delicious and not a monstrous size.
The photos aren’t even everything that was ordered for our table. We ended up with some leftovers, which I in turn used to make a posh breakfast: toast with grilled green beans, mushrooms, and mixed nuts. I am determined to make something like this again in my home kitchen on a weekend where I am feeling decadent.
If you ever find yourself in Rhinebeck, NY, you should swing by The Amsterdam for a bite or two or ten. (^_~)
