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 crispy lamb spring roll with apricots, almonds and mint tzatziki and the roasted squab served rare over creamy polenta cake, braised endive and tangerine glaze. Entrées are similarly creative: try the slow-cooked Hudson Valley half rabbit with fennel sausage, potatoes, rosemary and hot cherry peppers, and the Parmesan-crusted veal chop with broccoli rabe and Chianti natural. 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.
