2014 Dining Series
Welcome to the 2014 Dining Series!
The CIA Restaurant Group welcomes you to another season of tantalizing tastings, enlightening lectures, and delicious dining. We have exciting new events highlighting wines and spirits, culinary journeys through the Italian countryside, and celebrations of farm-to-table fare. You’ll want to sample everything.
Reserve Your Spot
We suggest you make reservations soon for these exclusive events—they fill up fast! Call 845-471-6608, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.–6 p.m.
Each Dining Series event features a fixed menu. At lunches, a glass of wine or beer is provided. At dinners, wine and beer are carefully paired with each course (and are limited to that course). Regular coffee and tea are included.
At these special events, you’ll likely share the experience at a table with other guests who are just as enthused as you are about the world of food and wine.
Ristorante Caterina de’ Medici
Truly authentic regional Italian cuisine takes center stage at Ristorante Caterina de’ Medici, a sophisticated dining room overlooking a stunning herb and rose garden. Dining at this grand Tuscan-style villa is a culinary escape to another world without ever having to leave the beautiful Hudson Valley. You can also enjoy wood oven pizza and other simple rustic dishes in the more casual Al Forno Trattoria.
American Bounty Restaurant
With a focus on the seasons and products of the Hudson Valley, contemporary and traditional regional dishes are brought to life at the American Bounty Restaurant in an honest and flavorful way. Rounded out with a first-class American wine list and comfortable warm service, this casually elegant restaurant sets the stage for an unparalleled dining experience in New York’s Hudson Valley.
The CIA Expertise
Every restaurant at The Culinary Institute of America is led by our world-class, professional faculty in both the kitchens and the dining rooms. While they are guiding the educational experience for our culinary and baking and pastry students, they are simultaneously ensuring that our patrons are having an exceptional dining experience.
