The Crystal Inn lies in the heart of the Black Dirt agricultural region, which gives the chefs many special opportunities to prepare its contemporary American menu, often using local ingredients harvested earlier in the day.
During the last decade there has been a burgeoning agri-tourism industry blossoming in the exurbs north and west of New York City. Ryan Zygmunt notes that the Culinary Institute of America, the Black Dirt produce region, artisan bakeries, dairies, the Shawangunk Wine Trail, craft breweries, cideries, distilleries, and fruit orchards are increasingly attracting food lovers to the Hudson Valley.
