Gregory Henderson
Owner of the Roxbury Motel Gives His Choices
2258 County Highway 41, Roxbury

Public Restaurant & Lounge
2318 Co Rd 41, Roxbury
“Public is literally next door to my hotel. It’s a good local watering hole. They make a mean martini and mojito, and I always recommend the wasabi tuna. It’s a nice option if you are staying at the hotel and don’t want to drive.”

Cassie’s Café
53535 NY-30, Roxbury
“This country cafe makes some of the best pancakes and waffles around. At lunch, I always go for the hummus wrap.”

373 New York 28, Big Indian
“This is the go-to restaurant for special occasions and tasting menus. The chefs worked at top NYC restaurants, including Le Bernardin and Picholine. So you get quality food but at half the price and in a more relaxed setting. They’re known for their braised short ribs. The chef braises them for three days so they are incredibly tender. My favorite when it’s in season is the beet tartare, a great choice for vegetarians. They also do great cocktails. Try the blood orange margarita. After dinner, save room for s’mores, which you can make around the outdoor fire pit.”

Arkville Bread & Breakfast
NY-28, Arkville
“Locals know this place as Jack’s. There’s not lodging here, the name is just a play on words. The owner-chef is a cool ex-surfer dude and he serves seriously good breakfast and lunch out of an old caboose. It’s got a great local atmosphere and you can’t go wrong with any of the sandwiches or salads.”

Union Grove Distillery
Co Rd 38, Arkville
“A newer establishment, Union Grove is a vodka distillery and a ton of fun to visit. They have a copper-topped bar where you can sample the different vodkas and try cocktails. Distillery tours are free if you want to see how the vodka is produced.”

Oakley’s Place
44681 NY-28, Arkville
“Oakley’s is the best wood-fired pizza in town. Everyone gathers here. The buffalo chicken pizza is so good.”
