During our stay at the Emerson Resort & Spa, we ventured out to this amazing farm-to-table restaurant called The Peekamoose. Their entire concept is based on sustainability so basically everything gets repurposed (besides your leftovers, of course!)

We started out the meal with fresh baked focaccia, and from the first bite, I knew this was going to be a meal I would never forget!
When it came to the appetizers, I decided to go completely out of my comfort zone. For those of you who don’t know, I do not eat seafood. So it was a BIG deal that I tried their grilled octopus with a red pepper aioli. But how could I pass up trying something that looked this good!
For our main courses, Shane ordered the wood-oven steak that was so *perfectly* cooked. I truly had never tried anything like it!
I opted for the short ribs (you pretty much forget the diet when you go to this place). These were absolutely HANDS DOWN the best I ever tasted – literally melted in your mouth.
We were so stuffed from dinner that we couldn’t fathom eating dessert, but when we stepped outside to this adorable fire pit, we couldn’t pass up roasting a marshmallow – or six – on actual sticks!

For a nightcap, we went to the bar adjoining the restaurant. I may be sober, but I still appreciate a well-stocked bar! The bar has a rustic and more casual vibe to it. Which brings me to the decor. Being someone who LIVES for a good poof, I couldn’t help but get caught up in the woods-themed furnishings. Some of the rustic decorations were definitely not veg-friendly (hello, taxidermy!) haha
All in all, The Peekamoose is definitely worth taking the trip to the Catskills in itself. But if you’re looking to make a weekend getaway out of it, be sure to book your stay at Emerson’s Resort & Spa. We promise you won’t be disappointed! 🙂
