Katie Craves is the pet project of a Hudson Valley expat living in Connecticut. A healthcare worker, nursing student and self-proclaimed foodie with an eclectic taste in good food and drink. After developing a list of local spots for friends and family to try, I have curated it and created this page for the public to enjoy.

With my faithful dining partner and toy poodle, we explore the area surrounding New York City, and pick out the best of the best for the readers of this blog. Expect amazing food, honest reviews, and a whole bunch of dog-friendly venues.

Follow our adventures in the Hudson Valley, Connecticut and beyond on Instagram @katiecraves and on Facebook.
