HIGHMOUNT, New York ??вЂќ The third annual Taste Of The Town will be held at Belleayre Mountain on Monday, January 23rd, 2006. The Discovery Lodge is transformed from ski lodge to candle lit dining room, featuring twelve of the finest restaurants in the region. Each restaurant will showcase a dish unique to their establishment, and the result is truly a gastronomic delight.
