The Bear Cafe in Woodstock must be the best restaraunt in the Catskills...
On our way up to Clinton, Lynn and I stopped at Woodstock as an easy to find and entertaining half-way point between Long Island and Upstate NY. We were a little wary, however, of the famous town because our tastes are not as earthy as we imagined the restaraunts of Woodstock might be. In our short, overnight stay we managed to find one of the most charming and dramatic restaraunts we had seen anywhere outside of Manhattan.
This restaraunt, Bear Cafe, only about two miles past our inn. The atmosphere was rustic with many tables situated streamside where a dramatic rushing current frames the cozy, but energetic dining room. The menu was the best melding of vegetiarin and carnivore I have ever seen with delicious sounding plates of Flat Grilled Bean Curd with Asian Greens (my choice) sharing space with Sesame Crusted Alaskan King Salmon (Lynn's choice). The crowd was attractive and interesting without being too self-conciously posed (as is the fashion in much of Eastern Long Island).
