Located on Main Street in Beacon, New York 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.”

Chef Brian Arnoff, born and raised in the Hudson Valley, always knew he wanted to return to his Dutchess County roots to open a restaurant. As a child growing up in Hyde Park, NY, with full-time working parents, Brian stepped-up to the counter and took part in preparing family meals. He got his first real restaurant job just before college, when he spent the summer working for the executive chef at Gigi Trattoria in Rhinebeck. After being offered a full-time position in the kitchen, Brian made the difficult decision of choosing college.
While earning his degree in hospitality management at Boston University, Brian 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. Brian’s work with Chef Lynch inspired a semester abroad at Apicius International School of Hospitality in Florence, Italy. His experiences learning, living and working in Italy had a profound effect on his cooking style. He began to learn the true art of fresh handmade pastas and he developed a deeper appreciation for seasonal ingredients and regional cooking. After receiving his degree from Boston University, he took some time to travel and made it a point to eat like a local and learn unique aspects of each cities’ culinary customs.
When the opportunity arose to move to Washington, D.C., Brian 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, with mentions and awards from the Washington Post, The Washingtonian, Southern Living Magazine, Thrillist, Zagat and more. After three and half years in business Brian sold CapMac with an eye on returning to the Hudson Valley. During the summer of 2015 he opened Kitchen Sink Food & Drink a casual, fine dining restaurant in Beacon. In June of 2017 he opened Meyer’s Olde Dutch which has become part of the local scene in Beacon, and is a great part of the revitalization of the charming Hudson Valley community.
Brian and his wife, Jaimee, reside in Beacon.

Tell us a little about your background.
I went to high school in Peekskill then I went to Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. While I was there I helped open a wine bar in town where I worked for two years while attending school. After graduating I moved back to the area and took a job at the Roundhouse where I worked for three and a half years. After that I worked at The Hop. I saw an ad on Craigslist for a position at Kitchen Sink where I worked for about a year until the opening of Meyer’s Olde Dutch.
What do you like most about your job?
Teaching. I enjoy teaching people new stuff and seeing them learn it and execute what they’ve learned. It’s great seeing a new person grasp a concept and then make it his or her own.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
My son. He wakes up, I get up!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Watching TV all night. I particularly enjoy old episodes of Iron Chef.
What’s the most interesting thing about you that most people don’t know?
I’ve played the trumpet for a long time. In high school I played in a band.
If time and money were no object where would you go on vacation?
Japan and Italy. Art and food are both revered in those countries. I am very interested in their cultures that are very different from our culture.
What’s your favorite motivational music to work to?
Metal keeps me going. It makes me get up and gets my blood flowing. It has to be loud!
