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 indoor fireside seating. The menu highlights Italian flavors with Mediterranean, French, Spanish, Greek and Portuguese accents. Appetizers include the sweet and smoky baked stuffed dates with bacon, valdeon cheese and almonds. Risotto dal giardino combines asparagus, pecorino Toscano, rosemary and honey. Entrées feature al dente pastas including gnocchetti in a Venetian crustacean ragù with red pepper coulis and parsley gremolata, and specialties like maiale, a pork tenderloin in crépenette served with potato gratin and glazed asparagus in a Parmigiano sabayon. 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.
