The River Grill
40 Front St. Newburgh, NY 845-561-9444
This buoyant and attractive spot combines sweeping river vistas, a comfortablepatio, and a menu of straightforward contemporary American food. If there is ashortcoming, it is that servers tend to come unglued when busy, which is all of thetime in summer. The canopy-shaded patio borders a promenade along this minirestaurant row.
The menu takes no chances. Lunch features all sorts of sandwiches, salads andwraps, while dinner presents standards like rack of lamb, roasted duck, grilledmahi-mahi, and southwestern lobster ravioli. What the wine list lacks in ambition itmakes up for in prices -- there are plenty of decent choices for under $30.
