To enjoy these last beautiful days of summer, we drove down to the Newburgh Waterfront, a row of restaurants situated along the Hudson River. They have patio seating overlooking the water, and there's a little walking path. We took a short stroll...
...and stopped for lunch at Havana 59, which specializes in "Cuban-American fusion." We grabbed a table out on the deck, and our considerate waitress brought an umbrella for our table so we could keep the babies in the shade. While we waited for our food, we watched geese playing in the water and boats leaving the dock.
I had the chipotle hummus wrap with sweet potato fries.
The hummus was a bit watery; I don't think they put any tahini in it. It did have a pleasant garlicky, slightly smoky flavor. The fries were awesome. I make sweet potato oven fries at home from time to time, but sweet taters just don't crisp up in the oven the way regular potatoes do. They still taste good, but sometimes I need the crunch that only a deep frier can provide!
