Mark Strausman

Agriturismo - Pine Plains, NY

At Agriturismo, executive chef and owner Mark Strausman has created an intimate, weekends-only restaurant inspired by the bounty of its Hudson River Valley setting. The longtime NYC chef (Coco Pazzo, Sapore di Mare, Compagna), who also oversees the kitchen at Fred’s at Barneys New York, approaches his Italian-inflected farm-to-table menu with loving attention.
