Take a Bite of Beacon!


Opening Soon!  Watch this space for our opening date and hours.


Meyer’s Old Dutch Food & Such is a fun and casual, modern interpretation of the classic burger joint with a full-service bar.

We use only the finest ingredients including local food purveyors such as beef from the Hudson Valley, cheese from NY state and produce from local farmers – together with our family micro farm in Hyde Park.  Our full-service bar features a large selection of NY craft beer, locally produced wine and house-crafted cocktails.

In addition to beef burgers, the menu offers lamb, chicken and vegan options with multiple toppings and house-made signature sauces, plus hand-cut fries, sweet potato fritters and salads. All items will be available via counter service and served in open seating and a back open-air patio.

Meyer’s Old Dutch is named after Chef/Owner Brian Arnoff’s great grandfather Meyer, who once owned and operated Old Dutch Grocery across the river in Middletown, NY.  At Meyer's Olde Dutch we look forward to bringing you our passion for food  in a fun and casual atmosphere. We want you to "take a bite of Beacon"!  We can’t wait for you to check us out – eat in or take out.”

About Chef/Owner Brian Arnoff

Born and raised in the Hudson Valley, Brian Arnoff always knew he wanted to return to his Dutchess County roots to open a restaurant. While earning his degree in hospitality management at Boston University, he had the opportunity to work for James Beard Award-winning chef Barbra Lynch, during which time he helped open Sportello, Chef Lynch’s modern take on casual Italian. He spent a semester abroad at Apicius International School of Hospitality in Florence, Italy where he developed a deeper appreciation for seasonal ingredients and regional cooking.


After graduation, Brian spent time as a line cook in two Four Seasons Hotel restaurants – first at the Four Seasons Boston, and then at Michael Mina Bourbon Steak in Washington, DC. While in DC, he began planning his first business, a macaroni and cheese food truck. Brian opened CapMac, one of the first food trucks on the DC food truck scene, in November, 2010.  His mac and cheese creations received rave reviews and CapMac soon became a DC institution. After three and half years in business Brian sold CapMac with an eye on returning to the Hudson Valley. He opened Kitchen Sink Food & Drink in 2015 and will open Meyer’s Dutch Grocery in 2017.
