“Lis” is Polish for “fox,” a nod to the location on Foxhall Avenue.
Festa at Italian Center Thursday, May 16-Sunday, May 19: One doesn’t have to stroll far along the streets of Poughkeepsie’s Mount Carmel district to come across a bakery or restaurant that reaches back into the century-old culinary traditions brought to the Hudson Valley by Italian emigrants.
