Off The Beaten Path: Phoenicia Diner

It is always nice to find new "getaway" spots that are close by for those weekends (or weekdays!) when you just need a break. My favorite spot away from the city this year has been Phoenicia, NY. Though the summer brings all sorts of people up there for hiking, camping and water sports along the Esopus Creek, the winter is relatively quiet. This means no waiting for my favorite brunch place right now... Check it out here.
