Need recs for small wedding in Westchester

Any more recommendations? We are a party of 32 and need a wheelchair accessible room.
La Panitiere and Red Hat not accessible.
Too big for Bedford Post.
Too small for Ttown Estates and Stone Barn.
Equus is remodeling and scheduled to open 5/1, not sure how I feel about that.
Have calls in to Harvest on Hudson and Haymount House.

Need recs for small wedding in Westchester

I'm looking for a small venue for a wedding 30-40 people in southern westchester. We want great food and would like to have accomodations on premises or very close by. No budget. We want an elegant, private setting with excellent food.

Must-Go-To in Ardsley: Italian Kitchen

Wow!! We live nearby and decided to give Italian Kitchen a try. Yum! Crostini was so good we wished we ordered more, we had the red pepper one. Lobster risotto was a generous portion, lots of lobster and really decadent. We also had a pasta dish wish octopus, spicy and flavorful, I loved it. We took the server's suggestions and ate the Chicken Mattone and a scallop dish for entrees. Both were excellent. All in all, food was great and do we're portions, lots of reasonably priced wines and I appreciated that I could taste the Campari in my aperitif, most places water it down too much. Only negatives: waiter was decent but not nearly as polished as the food, our dessert, panna cotta with blueberries was a bug bowl of pudding. We did love the tart blueberry compote, though. Can't wait to go back.

Grace's Table--White Plains

Mother's Day disappointment. We went to Grace's for dinner, prix fixe $50 was a bit overpriced for portion size. We were seated for 2 1/2 hours because service was super slow. Lamb chop dinner had 2 very small chops. Ceviche app was only slightly bigger than an amuse bouche. Steak Diane was mostly potatoes with a very small looking steak portion. Desserts were okay, although we waited 30 minutes to get them. I realize that Mother's Day is busy in restaurants but we had an early reservation and there were lots of empty tables. Flavors were good but honestly not worth the price. There are lots of restaurants with good food, and service that have better prices and portions- Haven, Mima, Iron Horse and Harvest to name a few.

Need LI Recommendations for Medford/Patchogue/Hauppage

California Diner is a a decent standard diner. Satellite pizza on Montauk HWy in Bayport has great pizza and calzones. Mi Territa on Montauk Hwy in patchogue has big, tasty plates on Colombian Food, try the Bandeja Tipica. Pita House is yummy. The Oar House in Patchogue is beautiful, on the canal, but pricey. A nice place to get a drink and app at the bar. You might want to look at Sayville, 20 minutes away and lots of great restaurants.

California Diner
570 S Service Rd, Patchogue, NY 11772

Pita House

Looking for a good Salad in Westchester

Pete's Saloon in Elmsford has great salads. They have live music on the weekends which can get a bit loud. For $14, try the Rockefeller -sliced sirloin steak, endive, olives, gorgonzola, and great balsamic vin.
