CATSKILL, N.Y. (AP) - A Hudson River village 100 miles north of New York City has landed a chef through an innovative ad campaign that offered space on Main Street rent free for a year.

The hope is that the right restaurant will create a buzz among foodies and help the village of Catskill accelerate the kind of gentrification that has revived other river towns.

Andrea Lowenthal of High Falls Holding announced Saturday that chef Jamie Parry has signed a lease for the site of the historic Mayflower cafe.

Parry is founder and chef of Another Fork in the Road, a New American restaurant focusing on locally-grown food in Red Hook, 15 miles south of Catskill. He has also served stints at Montrachet in New York City and Swoon in Hudson.
