We have a simple philosophy at Brasserie 292: use fine, local in-season ingredients coupled with traditional cookery to create an incomparable and exceptional dining experience.

Bon appétit!

Our Local Partners

Brasserie 292 strives to source 90% of in-season ingredients from local vendors in the Hudson Valley. We would like to thank some of the local farms that we use ingredients from:

Free Bird Farm
Nestled in the heart of Central New York’s Mohawk Valley, Free Bird Farm stands as a beacon of sustainable agriculture and organic integrity. As a family-operated sanctuary, we pride ourselves on offering the purest, freshest produce, cultivated without the reliance on synthetic fertilizers, chemical pesticides, or fungicides. With a steadfast commitment to organic principles, every leaf, every fruit, and every vegetable from our soil is 100% certified organic—guaranteeing your peace of mind and well-being.

Hepworth Farms
Hepworth Farms, established 1818, is a seventh-generation family farm in Milton, New York. The farm is located on the Hudson River approximately 75 miles north of New York City. After graduating from Cornell University in 1982, farmer Amy Hepworth assumed leadership and began the process of dechemicalization, transitioning from standard farming practices to a "whole systems approach." They specialize in tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, zucchini, cucumbers, and many varieties of greens. The farm is operated by Amy, her twin sister Gail Hepworth and Gerry Greco.

Hudson Valley Farms
Our farm is located in Ferndale, New York, on 200 lush acres in the Catskill Mountains, a lovely two-hour drive from New York City.Our spacious cage-free barns shelter our ducks from varying weather conditions, especially freezing conditions from September through May in the mountains, and protect them from wildlife predators. We raise and process our Moulard ducks on the farm.  Each duck is individually evaluated by a US Department of Agriculture Inspector under strict guidelines for wholesomeness.  Please look for their seal of approval on all of our offerings!

Island Creek Oysters
A vertically integrated farm dedicated to making an impact on our food systems. They operate one of the only shellfish hatcheries in the northeast; a distribution company selling shellfish from over 100 farms!

Murray's Cheese
Murray's Cheese was born in Greenwich Village in 1962, and the heart of their business still resides in New York City. From flipping and washing wheels to dreaming up delicious experiments, we honor the tradition of cheese aging by crafting unique, best-in-class products in our caves.

Sauder's Eggs
Many of their eggs are gathered by hand in the morning. They use the latest technology to process their eggs to ensure they are top-quality. Then, we generally transport their eggs to retailers on the same day they’re gathered from the nest to ensure they’re the freshest eggs available.

Hillrock Distillery
Hillrock is proud to be one of the few “field-to-glass” whiskey producers in the world and the first USA distillery since before Prohibition to floor malt and hand craft whiskey on site from estate grown grain. Hillrock’s commitment to quality embodies the rich history of artisanal distilling in the Hudson Valley. By controlling every aspect of production from planting & harvesting heirloom grains, to smoking our malt, to crafting whiskies in our copper pot still, to aging in small oak barrels and hand bottling, we are able to create the highest quality whiskies reflecting the unique local terroir.

King's Court Brewing Company
Cortlandt Toczylowski got his Master's in Brewing from UC-Davis and worked in the craft beer industry in the Bay Area. He has won three GABF (Great American Beer Festival) awards, two NY State Brewers Association awards, and one TAP NY award. He looks forward to satisfying your beer needs and showing you what great beer actually is!

Millbrook Vineyards & Winery
Established in 1982 on a former dairy farm, Millbrook Vineyards & Winery was the first vineyard in the Hudson River Region of New York State dedicated exclusively to the production of vinifera grapes. Today, it produces between 10-15,000 cases of wine annually. The 30 acres of vines include plantings of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and an Italian grape varietal called Tocai Friulano.

NY Distilling Co
The earliest distilleries in Brooklyn date back to the 1700’s. During Prohibition there were over 50,000 illicit stills in New York City. Since Prohibition however, the ethereal perfumes of distillation have been largely absent…until now.

Rockey's Liqueur
Rockey’s is made from a blend of green apple, pineapple, green tea, black tea, and citrus - inspired by classic, clarified milk punch. It is blended with a small amount of American, neutral grain spirit, has low-alcohol and low-sugar content, is gluten-free, nut-free and lactose-free.

Sloop Brewing Co
Named after the historic vessels that once cruised the Hudson River, Sloop Brewing Co is a proud contributor to the craft beer movement in upstate New York. Established in 2011 by Adam Watson and second-generation brewer Justin Taylor, Sloop Brewing Co. set sail from a Poughkeepsie garage, vending beer at local farmer's markets, to become one of the nation's fastest-growing breweries. By 2014, Sloop expanded its operations, establishing a production facility in Elizaville, NY, comprising five fermentation tanks and two brite tanks and churning out a remarkable 90 barrels of beer each week.

Taconic Distillery
Established in 2014, they handcraft our award-winning bourbon and rye whiskies in small batches using the finest ingredients, including grains grown in New York and natural spring water from our farm. Inspired by hunting and fishing, Taconic embraces a passion for the outdoors and that passion is imprinted on all our spirits.

Tuthilltown Distillery
 In 2003, Ralph Erenzo had a wild idea to move upstate and start a distillery, way back before there was a craft distiller in every neighborhood across the US. Ralph didn’t play by the rules. He fought for his whiskey, and challenged the government to change the laws for craft distillers everywhere. Now craft distilling is everywhere — with over 1,800 distilleries in the US, and over 180 in New York alone. Their 36 acres are situated on the outer fringe of the New York metropolitan area, at the foot of the Shawangunk Mountains, in the heart of the Hudson Valley.
