• From NYC ramp martinis to Hudson festival

06 Apr

T‘is the season for ramps, those wonderful members of the onion family that spring forth in …well, spring, and cause all sorts of chefs and bartenders to get inventive. Take these events for example:

• If you’re in Manhattan, you can take part in a ramp dinner with ramp martinis and ramp wine next Tuesday at Hearth Restaurant, 403 East 12 Street at First Avenue. It’s $120 per person, including tax and tip. Reservations: (646) 602-1300.

• Beginning Monday, and lasting as long as the ramp season does, the restaurant Marc Forgione at 134 Reade Street in Manhattan will offer a seven-course ramp menu for $89 per person plus beverages, tax and tip. Reservations: (212) 941-9401.

• And, in the Capital Region, a dozen chefs from the Hudson Valley and NYC will provide the food — accompanied by a cash bar — for Ramp Fest Hudson 2011 in Columbia County. It’s set for 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 30, at Basilica Hudson, 110 South Front Street in Hudson, opposite the Amtrak railroad station. Tickets are $40 for adults, $20 for children 5 to 11. You can get them online.
