Spring has arrived! It’s time to go out and dine alfresco (weather permitting). These foodie destinations make the most of local, seasonal ingredients and options to match every mood and palate.

Treat your palate to fresh falafel made to order

Open daily from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., in the heart of Rhinebeck. Aba’s Falafel is a midday hot spot known for its fresh falafel made with organic chickpeas and made to order. Classic fare is served with fresh salads, tahini, your choice of hot or tangy sauces, and a warm pita. The menu also offers sabich, hummus, soup, baklava and Turkish coffee. Minus the pita, everything on the menu is gluten-free. Nice indoor or outdoor seating and take-out is also available. Simple, fresh, healthy and always tasty.
