Nice dinner @ Fortina in Armonk

Is there a social scene in Armonk? Where do the divorced people go to mingle ?

What are the most overrated restaurants in Westchester?

Any others?

Peter Pratt's in Yorktown is the best restaurant in Westchester?

Is this true?

Red Plum - White Plains

What are local alternatives to White Plains eating? What are your top 3 favs in Mamk or Port Chester (or whatever else is close)

Great American BBQ pop-up (White Plains, NY)

People here will pay twice that. Foodies are obsessed with food! If you can't afford $10 for a burger, then stick to fast food

Nice dinner @ Fortina in Armonk

Who are all these people who are eating in Armonk? It's a dead zone. Are these all retired people? Or housewives and the trainer?

Decline in community spirit vs. the communal restaurant concept

What are the most UNDER-rated restaurants in LOWER/MID Westchester?

Lots of suggestions in Kisco, Bedford, etc.

How about sticking to just White Plains, Rye, Port Chester, Mam'k, Harrison, Greenwich, Tarrytown, Irvington, Larchmont....

What's the difference between Tap Room and the Kittle House? Do they have different menus or something? Or just a different atmosphere? Or do you also like Kittle House, as well?

What are the most UNDER-rated restaurants in Westchester?

I think I had some very spicy Insanity sauce there once.

What are the most UNDER-rated restaurants in Westchester?

Not a huge fan or Italian. I can cook pasta at home, and am not a fan of paying $15 for pizza. Not a fan of Paninnis, either.

Westchester: I want to meet 20 friends for drinks.

Thanks. Dive bar is not my speed.

Westchester: I want to meet 20 friends for drinks.

Thanks, but No parking lot is a hassle. Want to keep this simple and easy. Rye could work, but ideally I want something more centrally located. Let's see.

Westchester: I want to meet 20 friends for drinks.

I want to meet 20 friends for drinks. Know a place that has a side room that doesn't feel like a hotel conference room? That bar side room in Ron Black's was ideal, but they removed that.

Also, Club Car in Mamaroneck. Is that a legitimate bar or restaurant only?

Emma's Ale House

I got a turkey burger and the bread was damp/soggy and hot as hell.
I assume this was microwaved?

What got you "into" wine?

So, you ended up drinking booze with a guy who just tried to seduce you. Good work.

Drinking wine in Paris. Any basic guidelines? "do's vs. dont's vs. don't miss"

I am going to Paris for a week.
Recently, I've become a "wine person".

In terms of wine, what can I expect there?
Should I focus on something vs another?
Will there be wines not available in the USA?
Is there an obvious "do's vs. dont's vs. don't miss" ?

I have had plenty of French wine in America, but will it be different there?
Burgundy, Bordeaux, Chablis, Pouilly Fume, Pouilly Fuse, etc.

Need Westchester recommendation ...

Hey folks, thanks for all the various ideas. I appreciate it, and I'll let you know which I decide to go with ...

Peniche does have a nice "communal table" feel. Nice, yet has an informal vibe. That might actually be ideal. I HATE the feeling of being the only group in a place.

Need Westchester recommendation ...

Thanks. Hmm, on 2nd thought, I think I'd like something nicer than the "retail/fast-food" vibe. (Starbucks, Cosi, etc) For me, these places have a subtle implication of quick in-out.

Any ideas more in Southern 914?
White Plains and below....

The more I think about it, I think I'd want a nicer place, but that allows us to hang out. So not a "formal dinner" vibe either. (Done eating yet?)

Hmm, I think I just need a bar vibe.
How about a bar that has large tables??

Bedford Post Inn - Overpriced and undersized

Is Peniche considered a ripoff in terms of what you get?
I like the ambiance of tapas, but think it's a ripoff.
You end up ordering 4 plates that are $10/ea on average.
Yet, I have NEVER ordered a $40 entree!!

Need Westchester recommendation ...

Ok, this is going to be VERY general, so pardon me.

I am meeting 8 people for a "book club" meeting.
The point is not so much the food, but the atmosphere.
Venue can be coffee, happy hour, dinner, etc.

I want a place in Westchester where we can
chat comfortably
and not feel rushed out
not so stuffy where the decorum/waiter distracts from the conversation.
We'd like to be left alone, but also not be the only people in the place.

I also need the same recommendation for a group of 15 people
(which might require a different venue)

Does anything come to mind?

$62 Antinori-Matte Albis Maipo Valley (cabernet) vs. $18 Vignerons de Caractère Vacqueyras Les Hauts du Castellas (GSM)

90
Antinori-Matte Albis Maipo Valley (cabernet)

$62
(Thought it was no different than $10 Cab)

vs.

Vignerons de Caractère Vacqueyras Les Hauts du Castellas (
(GSM) $18
Thought the GSM was much better.
Jammy. Fruity. Acid. Low tannin. Pepper aftertaste?

This Louis Latour red Burgundy is more earthy than I thought. Not very fruity...
Vaguely reminds me of Bordeaux (without the tannins...)
