In true small-town style, there’s barely a frill to be seen among the Carmel restaurants, an upstate New York destination that comprises the Carmel, Mahopac, Kent Cliffs and Farmers Mills hamlets. Service is warm and a large number of the restaurants are family run, with recipes passed down through the generations.
During the summer, the area is a popular destination for city dwellers looking to escape for long weekends—with many deciding not to ever leave, instead opting to settle alog with their passion for cross-cultural cooking.
Carmel’s lush forests and numerous lakes provide a lovely backdrop for all this great eating. So settle in and start digging in.
