While visiting my parents, who recently moved to our house upstate New York, a spot I have to visit at least once is Oriole9 in Woodstock. Oriole9 reminds me a lot of Venice, CA restaurants because they use fresh, local and organic products from the Hudson Valley whenever possible. Each dish has fun tastes and combinations – there’s something for everyone. My family and I went for Sunday brunch – my dad, sister and I had the “Oriole9 Breakfast” (pictured below) and it was delicious, my brother (also pictured below) got the meatball sandwich and my mom went with the B&E chicken sandwich. As always, I had a latte and got a side of avocado and hot sauce with my meal and we all left happy and content!
