Nyack Feasts Weeklong Restaurant Event February 15-21

Foodies, friends, and families with a hankering for good food from kitchens other than their own will find great eats and great values in Nyack during the village’s first-ever Nyack Feasts restaurant event. 
 
Nyack Feasts runs from Monday to Sunday, February 15 – 21 for lunch and dinner. The event is generously sponsored by Nyack Ridge Rehabilitation & Nursing Center.
 
“Let’s save our restaurants, and let’s do it by offering people our best food at great prices,” said Nyack Mayor Don Hammond. “Nyack is a mecca for great food. We’re also a community of small businesses struggling to survive the pandemic. This event makes a powerful connection between businesses, civic leaders such as Nyack Ridge, and the community.” 
 
During this special week-long culinary celebration, diners can choose formats and flavors from 16 participating restaurants offering a variety of options — such as discounts of up to 20% on indoor dining and pick-ups, and special menus at special prices, plus free items to accompany orders, as well as family meals ready to go at discounted prices.   
 
“Nyack is not a one-size-fits-all community,” added event organizer Mark Davidoff, director of Nyack’s Hudson Market on Main and Rockland Community College Hospitality & Culinary Arts Center. “Our restaurant community is all about Nyack’s creativity, variety and multi-cultural cuisines. We’re not taking a standard “restaurant week” one-offer approach. Each participating restaurant crafts its own special brand of culinary magic.”   

As tempting samples, Hudson Market on Main will be offering a 20% discount on a family dinner for four. Many other restaurants are offering a 20% discount off their entire menu, and others have created a special menu to celebrate Nyack Feasts week. A full listing of participating restaurants and their offers is available on the Visit Nyack website HERE

 
Nyack Feasts offers both indoor dining and pick-ups. (Delivery services are not included in the promotion.) During the event, the village will provide special free parking for grab-and-go orders. A map of grab-and-go free parking spaces is available HERE. Free parking is also available throughout the village on Monday February 15 and Sunday February 21. 
 
“Restaurants nationwide are struggling,” said John Gendy of Broadway Bistro. “Nyack is no different. But we’re proud to be working our way through the crisis and keeping our kitchens going until times get better, as we know they will.” 
 
“Nyack is providing some of the best — and most interesting — food in the tri-state area”, added Constantine Kalandranis of The Greekish. “It’s an essential service to the community. People have been locked up for months — cooking the same meals at home over and over. They need a break — really, really good but exciting food that a talented chef cooks for them. That’s what Nyack Feasts is all about.”   
“We especially thank Nyack Ridge for their support,” said Roger Cohen, Nyack Chamber of Commerce President. “Nyack Feasts is a win-win for Nyack establishments and their patrons – a healthy, safe way to get through a really tough time, with a special flair unique to our village. Nyack Ridge is joining this important effort. They are premier providers of rehab and nursing services, but also top in community service as civic leaders.”
 
When I think about community service, I go to a quote from Winston Churchill,” said Michael Braunstein, owner, Nyack Ridge Rehabilitation & Nursing Center. “Churchill said: ‘ We make a living by what we get. But we make a life by what we give.'”

“Nyack Feasts is truly a community event — for the businesses, and for residents and visitors who come into town to taste the many delights of our special village,” said Davidoff. “Patrons can enjoy an amazing variety of cuisines at great prices, take time off from the at-home COVID cookbook, and at the same time support local establishments that are struggling to keep their ovens lit and their employees on the payroll.”   
 
“Nyack has fabulous restaurants with a dedicated following,” added Alessandra Naughton, the driving force behind a highly subscribed local Facebook group called Nyack Eats. “Just ask our 1500-plus members. They’ll tell you that the restaurant scene in Nyack is something we all should be following. Nyack Eats celebrates the culinary excellence found right in our village, and gives patrons a place to share their memorable dining experiences. We look forward to the Nyack Feasts event, and take pride in knowing that many local food enthusiasts and visitors will be inspired to explore our incredible restaurants.”

Nyack’s Feasts in Safe Haven and Winter Wanderland. Nyack Feasts is just one feature of a broader ”Safe Haven on the Hudson” program, launched last spring by the village of Nyack in collaboration with other leading local organizations.   

“The Safe Haven program is built on strict compliance with COVID 19 safety protocols,” said Mayor Hammond. “Nyack and its businesses have built strong protections for residents and visitors against Corona virus spread, with vigilant enforcement of mask-wearing and social distancing requirements for indoor and outdoor shopping, dining and service establishments. But it’s also about fun and finding new ways to enjoy what we have.” 

The program began with street closures for outdoor shopping and dining during the warm weather, and has continued into the colder months with “Winter Wanderland” and now with Nyack Feasts.. 

Shoppers and diners can enjoy Nyack Wanderland’s festive decorations, special offers and more, and should be on the lookout for the Nyack Fan Card, a $20 card that gives residents and visitors access to special deals offered by over a dozen participating businesses. The Fan Card is now available at local establishments and on the Visit Nyack website 

Shoppers should also plan to visit the Nyack Farmers Market, outdoors every Thursday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm in the Main Street parking lot. https://www.nyackchamber.org/nyack-farmers-market/

Looking ahead. Nyack Feasts will be a recurring, featured event as the seasons unfold and the pandemic abates. 

“We’re getting ready for spring,” said Maria Luisa Whittingham, President of Nyack Merchants United. “We’re banding together to offer our residents, visitors, customers and businesses safe, enjoyable opportunities to weather the final months of the pandemic. There’s much to come, and Nyack Feasts will be a special part of that.”  
 
Nyack’s Safe Haven activities, including Nyack Feasts, are sponsored by the Village of Nyack; the Nyack Chamber of Commerce; the Art, Crafts and Antiques Dealers Association (ACADA)Nyack Merchants UnitedVisit Nyack, Inc., Nyack Eats on Facebook and the more than 100 business establishments that make up Nyack’s special village.
