Posted by on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012 at 3:08pm.

There are no shortages of great places to eat in the bustling town of New Paltz, NY! Home to SUNY New Paltz, with thousands of hungry students, the sheer demand for good food has produced a nice mix of eateries. Not only that, but being less than 2 hours from NYC has made real estate for sale in New Paltz, NY very attractive to New Yorkers who also contribute to the demand for quality dining in the area.  You can find a variety of ethnic cuisine in New Paltz, and if Thai food is your preference, I've got a great place to tell you about!

Lemongrass Thai Cuisine is right on Main Street and offers not only tasty take-out but also a pleasant atmosphere to sit down and enjoy a meal. I went with a friend (who is currently living in New Paltz, NY) on a recent weeknight and although it was rather busy, we got a cozy booth for 2 right away. Thai cuisine is rather new to me; being a lover of spicy food I was intrigued by the fiery dishes I'd heard about (of which there are many at Lemongrass). Over time I've grown to appreciate the many vibrant flavors that make up Thai food, not only spice but sweetness and curry as well. Lemongrass Thai Cuisine is one of the very few restaurants in Ulster County, NY to get real authentic Thai food in all its glory. Many of the dishes are vegetarian and vegan friendly which was perfect for my friend, and the menu was very affordable which anyone, college kids to New Yorkers to families, can appreciate.

I veered from my usual spicy tendencies and had the Crispy Duck which was delicious and full of flavor. My friend had the Veggie Pad Thai and though she may not admit it, she cleaned her plate in spite of the generous portions. Best part was desert, where we had a fun time tasting the unique ice cream flavors such as Ginger, and Thai Ice Tea to name a few. As I said earlier the prices were very reasonable, with a high probability of bringing leftovers home for tomorrow's lunch. It's no wonder that New Paltz, NY has some of the most desirable homes for sale in the Hudson Valley. The proximity to NYC combined with an absolutely beautiful setting in the shadow of the Shawangunk Mountains make an irresistible combination that is reflected in home prices around the New Paltz, NY area. Lemongrass Thai Cuisine is located at 125 Main Street in New Paltz, NY (845) 256-0161. For the best real estate blog in Ulster County, NY tune into Taft Street!
