“A mix of Latin tastes with a fusion kick, Union is a wonderful place. The food and cocktails are made to perfection, all overseen by nationally renowned executive chef and owner David Martinez. Haverstraw is an old river town and was where Benedict Arnold plotted his treasonous act of handing over West Point to King George. If you want something more kid friendly and budget conscious head up the street to David's other restaurant called Noodles. ”

“Lucas Candy has been around for more than a century and is worth a visit. The candy is made on site and sold in the front of the store. Pick up a few chocolate bars for home. Try the PMS bar featured on the Today show. Old town charm.”

“The best Carolina BBQ north of the Mason-Dixon line! The chef is Culinary Institute-trained, and it's a simple, clean, family-run place with out-of-this-world food at a super-reasonable price. We go often! BTW -- corn fritters are a must!!”
