"Danny and I spend our week day evenings in Manhattan either ordering in or eating out and so we really cherish being able to cook and entertain at home on the weekends. But ever since Chris Turgeon opened up Wilde Beest in Kingston this past year, we find ourselves cooking less and less! It pains us to admit it for fear of not being able to score a table there ever again but the truth is that the dinners they are serving there are by far the best we have ever had dining out while living in the Hudson Valley over the past 12 years, and rivals the best we have had in NYC as well! They are making pure magic in that kitchen."
From the website of Wilde Beest: Led by Executive Chef Chris Turgeon, teamed with his business partner and Sous Chef, Russell Prickett, Wilde Beest is a collaborative brainchild born from friendship and a mutual desire to fabricate a unique and food driven restaurant experience unlike anything in the region. Joined by Eric Donaldson, Oshan Jarow and Greg Ryan, this small cooperative of friends is dedicated to artistry, craft, culinary excellence and the highest levels of hospitality
