The Casual Palate Reviews

Rating: 4 out of 5.
First time here. Superior food, nice atmosphere. Trees at the end of runway make a steep approach helpful, at least in a Bonanza. Snow was poorly plowed and little area for parking aircraft. Not the restaurants fault. Turning off the runway on to the taxiway required me to go over some snow piles. It last snowed a week ago. No excuse.

Heaven! Don't pass by this gem nestled out in the woods near the Hudson river. As a CFI at an area field, it's such a pleasure to take friends out here, and it's in the perfect position to make a return trip down past the skyline. Cool airport, awesome restaurant (not your usual airport field place, people actually drive out of their way to this place) definitely worth the stop by air. If I could just figure out how the runway lights work...

Great food and atmosphere... New name.. Not just an airport diner but a real destination. A "lodge" atmosphere, fireplace, real nice. You can taxi right up to the restaurant. Trees and a hill on the approach to the 30 foot wide runway. Great food!

Now called Nu-Cavu and one of my favorite stops for lunch or dinner - it's a real restaurant - not your typical greasy spoon... Nothing better than the outside dining watching the planes come and go...

Met some friends for dinner and have to say the place had a great atmosphere, interesting menu and excellent food. Plenty of parking on the grass right outside. Watch the trees landing from the west.

This is a more relaxed airport. After I shut down the engine I saw a few people playing frisbee and others enjoying happy hour. Inside you will find a rustic restaurant that I am guessing has a lively weekend life. The food was fantastic! I recommend the pizza w/ shrimp. My wife enjoyed the beer selection! I will definately go back.

When you taxi up from the runway, you can see right away this is no ordinary $100 hamburger. The Casual Palate looks like a mountain lodge. There is a huge fireplace and beams on the ceilings. The food is very interesting and unique. I haven't gotten the same thing anytime I've gone. This is the airport restaurant I bring all my friends to when I want them to see a great ride up the Hudson Corridor and awesome food.
