Harvest on Hudson Restaurant Review: Harvest on Hudson succeeds at coexisting with the natural beauty of the Hudson River Valley and Palisades without appearing intrusive or otherwise out of place. The Tuscan farmhouse setting includes a lush garden and patio dining, as well as elegant indoor fireside seating. The menu’s Italian flavors hold Mediterranean, French, Spanish, Greek and Portuguese accents, and organic ingredients including herbs, spices and vegetables are taken from the farmhouse's own garden. Appetizers include bruschetta of grilled country bread, white anchovies and roasted peppers, brick oven baked garlic shrimp, and crispy Sardinian bottarga toast with shaved red onion, tomato, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil. Pair these starters with the zuppa di pesce, a combination of shrimp, clams, calamari and mussels in a tomato, garlic and white wine broth. Or order the spicy Maremma-style ahi, stewed with San Marzano tomatoes, crushed garlic, red chilies, white wine, basil, parsley and extra virgin olive oil, and accompanied by broccoli rabe. Regional and worldly white and red wines complement the menu. Among desserts is a creamy and slightly tart passion fruit semifreddo of white chocolate mousse with pistachio crunch.
