Tired of the Same Old Westchester Saturday Night

You might like to try graces on central avenue near white plains.Very good food nice drink list
Fairly new so service is a little too attentive.Price reasonably for fresh high quality food.

Savona and farmer and the fish

Funny you should ask as it happens we did make it.The place was packed which is kind of sad
it just shows how desperate people are for a good restaurant in westchester.On to the food
We started with an order of littlenecks they were inedible really poor quality.My wife had the tuna it was also inedible due to being over spiced.I had the tuna burger which while edible
was probably the blandest dish i ever had.It was Tuna on a bun no condiments add ons nada.
I thought the food was very disappointing.To be fair the couple next to me and believe me tables are so close your be family by the time you leave.They had the lobster bake and thoroughly enjoyed it.That might be taken with a grain of salt because i think they were on their third martini by the time the food came:).I personally wont go back but it certainly could just of been a bad day for them time will tell

The Riverhead Project WOW!!!

i actually live near there and have yet to go.I have a hard time justifying the price
for just a casual dinner.Seems like more of an occasion place.Am i wrong??

Savona and farmer and the fish

Here is why some restaurants make it and some dont.Obviously being new restaurants they are busy.While as i called both for reservations Savona while not being able to accomodate me Went out of their way to offer other times or dates to try their restaurant.While Farmer and the fish acted clueless and said they could seat me at 6 if i left at 6 45.obviously they think their opening crowds will continue forever (which they wont)My point being a restaurant is more then just food. And how you treat your customers starts from the first phone call.Needless to say i wont bother calling farmer and the fish again.Ill wait till they start offering 1000 points to eat there on open table

Sushi Mike's - Dobbs Ferry

paboy is entitles to his or her opinion as much as you are.This is what the board is for .Im glad you like sushi mikes feel free to eat there.Some of us find their quality of fish erractic
And most certainly it is a sushi roll kind of place.

Best moderate option in Bridgehampton?

if you want to do something special go online and look up
Dish in watermill.They are only open on weekends for dinner
you can get the menu sent to you online for that week.Im sure you would be able to purchase
a gift certificate for your friend and a guest for under 150 it is a prix fixe byob place.Great food
you cant go wrong there

Private Chef and/or Mixologist in Southampton

if your girlfriends are cute ill do it:)

Gem Cuisines of China - "Don't Miss"?

boy thats a tough one,only answer i can give is when there good their very good.When there bad there pretty bad.Either way their always expensive so its a little risky.Im sure if you did a search you would find that paul is back he was the reason the old hunan place was a notch above.Again
i dont want to say its bad because its not cant miss????? Maybe for westchester but be a run of the mill joint in new york city

Birthday Dinner in Riverhead, Long Island...

contesse teresa is very close and great food and service.Also only winery with own restaurant

Help -- moved to Scarsdale

well a little out of the way but still in westchester is somers 202 great food in general but
Hamburgers are the best i have had in westchester and that includes pipers kilt.If you heading in that direction i also suggest blazer pub in purdy.

Help -- moved to Scarsdale

i just read jhopps post and got depressed not one mentioned is worth a drive.Westchester really needs some inspiration.I never get excited about eating out in westchester.Lets hope the new year brings some better choices.

Help -- moved to Scarsdale

oh boy as a ex brooklynite that lives in scarsdale your in for a world of pain,but let me try to be of some help.Chinese Gem on central avenue.Thai your in luck little thai kitchen by the station very good.korean two places on central avenue either is fine,one in yonkers one closer to white plains.Italian subjective tons here none to good.might like the cookery on dobbs ferry though not strictly italian.greek bospherus in hartsdale.ill throw in a bonus ruths jamaican kitchen battle avenue in white plains strictly for take out,And the old standby in scarsdale candlelight inn when you need a comfort food fix wings etc good luck!!!

NoFo of LI Comtesse Therese Bistro

I was there last saturday.Upon arrival The girls in my party remarked on the strong manure smell on the way into the restaurant ,It gave them pause.Once inside the smell was soon forgotten,It is a very pleasant environment with very good service .The food was good not memorable but solidy good.All in all a nice evening out

LTK coming to scarsdale!!

yes one can only assume same owners.Im looking forward to it

LTK coming to scarsdale!!

The one in greenwich on rochelle st only has a few tables.They do mostly takeout.What tables they have are close together.So we shall see if they can slip a few in.But really their food is a cut above the other options in the immediate area

LTK coming to scarsdale!!

Little Thai Kitchen

LTK coming to scarsdale!!

I have mixed feelings i love the LTK in greenwich.Im afraid that the location of this one by the train station is a death sentence.If this one is half as good as the other LTKs and remain byob.They should outlive the jinx

Are there ANY good places to eat in New Rochelle???

i could ask for lower prices and reasonable servings sizes.Really a very so so restaurant.Definately not a destination restaurant.Cienaga in new ro is better

weekend in upper columbia county/ berkshires

bells cafe in catskill ny is to my thinking better then both Especially for breakfast ,They do a good dinner too

weekend in upper columbia county/ berkshires

forget chatham and new lebannon focus on catskill ny and hudson ny

La Scarpetta - Mamaroneck

i have been there a few times.Its basically the same as spadaros.No menu
frankly its just ok but its byob so that helps.

Westhampton Area

on the bright side lots of farm stands and fresh produce.Hampton bays has two good fish stores .So ill just hone my home cooking

Westhampton Area

i just moved to westhampton beach i definately be interested in hearing about more riverhead choices.Thanks in advance

Westhampton Area

good luck with that its pricey stand alone building a little out of town ok food

Westhampton Area

baby moon and joes right next to it in westhampton beach

Karma Lounge/Ossining

below par??

thats is the biggest understatement of the new year.I went there four months
ago and im still shaking my head over how bad the service was.To be fair the owner offered us a 25 dollar coupon to use in the future.I offered him 50 dollars if i never have to go there again.In addition ill state what the other posters only implied
theres no way they are there to make a living off the restaurant this place is a front for something else
