Help -- moved to Scarsdale

sichuan pavillion on Bowman ave in Port Chester does a fine job. Place is small though very neat. Table cloths even. Call me cynical but prices have gone up as the menu has been freshened since Rays closed. Such is the case when supply and demand must cross. They provide what is now in dwindling supply, very good chinese food in a a clean comfortable environment. Though the 15 dollar a person minimum at dinner is really annoying.

Help -- moved to Scarsdale

we used to go there a bunch, they are very family friendly . The fish pales in comparison to Azuma . I happen to like Momji , which is about 5 doors down from Hajime

Help -- moved to Scarsdale

Agreed about Watermoon, or pretty much any asian fusion or whatever they are referred to as.
As far as sushi, Nanase is clearly the finest but not cheap and also quirky, to say the least. We have never been disappointed at Azuma . It doesn't get enough love on the chow boards.

Soft batch chocolate (or white chocolate) chip cookies in lower-mid Westchester

Butler Brothers in Harrison near the train station has decent prepared food , however their chocolate chip cookie is excellent . For my taste a perfect cookie. A bit crunchy around the edges soft and chewy on the inside . A perfect ratio of chocolate chips to dough. And NO NUTS

Harrison NY

Casa does a very nice job, the extra time to Cosmo and Alex in Mamaroneck is worth it however. Best restaurant is Emilio's. Upscale but very reasonable and fresh. Pasta is homemade on premises daily Comfortable , they do a great job. Agree on Gus's as a throwback with best basic fish around as well as a few very good German dishes.

Poultry Time in NewRo Bows Out

There was a post on August 5 that was removed from the site. It said Poultry time NR needs your help. Hard to help or spread the word if we don't know the contents.

Worth a Drive in Westchester - your picks

Many mentioned here are worth the trip. If I had to pick only one "worth the drive" it would be Nanase. There is so much sushi all over the county that you would think that at least one other restaurant would come close. They charge about 30% more than you would pay at any other sushi restaurant. It is just plain wrong that that the quality elsewhere does not compare. Azuma runs a distant second and that is saying a lot because there is no Bronze medalist in this race.

Catering a Bris in Lower Westchester

Went back this past Saturday. I hear you on the crackers etc. but this is a classic APPETIZING place. They used to be all over the NY area. Growing up in Brooklyn there were a few to choose from in my neighborhood alone. They along with most all of the others no longer exist. You go there for the FISH. three different kinds of lox that are hand sliced by people who know how. Plus whitefish, Sable, etc. The blintzes are first rate too. If somebody can tell me of another shop that is akin to this in Westchester, please pass it along.Barney Greengrass is a temple to this type of food but is in NYC. I live near La Maree and gladly make the 20 minute drive to Hartsdale.

Emilio's in Harrison

I can't say enough good things about Emilio's. If you are looking for action and a hot spot this isn't it though. The service is great, the antipasto cart is wonderful. Always has a FRESH fish dish or two. Nice space between tables and you can actually have a conversation with dinner guests. The service is professional and courteous. The pastas are made in house and are special. An extensive and reasonable wine collection as well. The way a restaurant should be run. No paper tablecloths or bare tables here.

Saturdays can be a bit rushed. If it is your first time trying the place do it on a Thursday.

Knife Sharpening in Rye Brook area

Believe it or not there is a building about 50 square feet on I believe , Read Street (near Kneaded bread)or the next street over.If you make a right on to the street heading north, the building is 50 yards down on the left. Inside there is one man and a giant wheel . All he does is sharpening. Commercial on most days but a day a week he takes in retail. A very nice man and an invaluable resource.

Pizza in the White Plains Area

Sals is expanding, albeit just next door. A second on Michael's as well.

A Burger in White Plains

Sounds like James Joyce is worth a try. I do like Pipers a bunch and think Blazers Pub is the best around. I agree abou the 50's place you mentioned. They try but in this day and age that alone doesn't cut it.It is a weak version of an already weak Johnny Rockets.The Sports Page never did much for me in the old location. I would think between all of the places on Westchester Ave , something would stand out. By the way , anyone know whatever happened to the Hot Dog place that was on Westchester Ave?
