I heard you on NPR some years ago describing Herschel’s so my wife and
I found the place and got to know Herschel. Unfortunately, he later
died and the wonderful hot dogs disappeared. Do you have any other
culinary suggestions?

Daniel replies:

Unless you took a trip from far away to Poughkeepsie to visit Herschel's, you already know it was an oasis in a comparative culinary desert. The only restaurant in the area I can think of where the food is good, the cooking comes from the heart, and customers are treated like friends is The Golden Wok in Red Hook, NY. Ask them to choose dishes for you, or bring you the sorts of things I usually order.
