Sushi/Sashimi Westchester

I was thinking of going into the City this weekend bc I'm craving good sushi and sashimi. Is there any to be found in Westhchester? I've read reviews of places from the last few years but owner and sushi chefs change and new places open. Really dont care about crazy rolls. Just want really good sashimi/sushi with a nice variety of different types of fish. Thoughts?

Sushi w/ a baby

Thanks. Not "used to" Yasuda and 15 East but been there before for my birthday and they sort of set the standard for me of what great sushi is. My "standard" is more like a Blue Ribbon sushi.

Sushi w/ a baby

The finances have taken a hit with the baby. So taking the baby with me allows me to afford the quality sushi I want....

Sushi w/ a baby

So it's my birthday, and I'm taking my 14 mo old with me and my wife for sushi. Any suggestions for what good places would be best to bring a baby? Planning for dinner at opening around 5 so less crowded. Didn't think Yasuda or East 15 would be good for a baby. Don't really want to go back to Blue Ribbon. Thoughts? Anyone think Sasabune would work? Never been

Bachelorette Party

I am thinking of suggesting:

Barley Swine, Franklin BBQ, Kome, Second Bar & Kitchen, Lucy's Fried Chicken, Enoteca Vespaio, Counter Cafe, Gourmand's Neighborhood Pub, Mi Made, Veracruz all natural, Bangers, and Easy Tiger.

Any thoughts about those?

Bachelorette Party

Friday night, Saturday night. So looking for 2 lunches, 2 dinners, and maybe 2 breakfasts. The hotel is downtown. I was thinking maybe sushi and one small plate place for dinner, BBQ, and tacos for lunch and a breakfast taco place plus another place. Or maybe any others suggestions or ideas

Bachelorette Party

So believe it or not, my foodie sister has asked her maids of honor to solicit my (her brother) help in planning the restaurants for her Bachelorette Party in Austin. Looking for a few places for lunches and dinners. At least one nice restaurant that can accommodate a group. Some other places that may specialize in an ethnicity or a specific dish that is really good. Sushi too maybe for one night. Thoughts?

Montreal with a group of guys

Hi All,

Heading to Montreal with a group of about 10 guys. Looking for some food suggestions for locations that have good food, but not romantic vibes. For example, some good gastropubs, steakhouse, and places where you can get a big cut of meat or a small roasted pig or lamb, etc .... for group eating. Also, looking for great places to go for things like smoked meat and poutine.

Thanks!!

I appreciate your novella. I didn't realize Barnstable is so large. I have checked, and we the house is in Barnstable Village. Hope that helps. Thank you for your time.

Cape Cod

I have no idea what the section is called (not from there). I can tell you based on google maps. It is literally on the water on the North side of the Cape. The map shows it is due north from the end of the Hyanis-Barnstable Rd./Hyanis Road. Not sure if that helps. I can try to get more info if necessary.

Cape Cod

My parents rented a house in Barnstable for a week this summer. Our family is very very food-centric, and I was hoping to get an early start on learning the food scene over there. Looking for some good recommendations for eateries. Obviously, we love the lobster roll/ steamer/ fried whole belly places, but we are also wanting to just find good finds. I don't care if its an awesome hot dog stand, etc ... Just want great places. Both lunch type places and a few dinner too. Willing to travel on the Cape for great food, but looking for some local stuff near where we are staying.

In addition to restaurants, can anyone recommend good bakeries, cheese shops, butchers, fishmongers, etc ??? Looking for something more than an everyday basic run-of-the-mill grocery store.

Lastly, driving from NY and interested in any must-stop places for lunch on the way.

Thanks for all the help.

Ramen in Westchester

It's cold and rainy; I need ramen soup. Living in the City for so long, we'd just go to Momofuku Noodle Bar. Is there any place to go in Westchester? Is H-Mart on Central Ave my best bet?

Last Restaurant Before First Baby

I really appreciate everyones advice. My wife really likes sitting by the water so we are going to just go to X2O. She has never been there, so I hope she likes it. They'll be more dinners.... just not as often and not as much $$. Thanks to all!!

We've been to Elia Taverna. The food was very good, but I think I am looking for something a little nicer. We have done Tarry Lodge, Cookery, Eastchester Fish Gourmet. Looking for somewhere new

Last Restaurant Before First Baby

Wife is 37 weeks pregnant with first baby so dont want to go into Manhattan. Looking for a great restaurant for what could be our last "real dinner" out for a while. We have reservations at Tarry Lodge but may want to go elsewhere. Someone recommended eleven14kitchen in J House in Greenwich, Restaurant North in Armonk, and Harper's in Dobbs Ferry. Any thoughts. I was thinking X2O but my wife is a pescatarian so I'm not sure if there enough options there for her. Thanks!!!

Special Dinner in Westchester

I want to take my pregnant wife for dinner for her birthday. We live in Scarsdale and usually go to Manhattan, but I'm thinking of staying up here since she can drive me home if I've had too much to drink? Any suggestions?

Kosher for Passover

I moved from Brooklyn to Scarsdale, and I'm looking to get some very good kosher for passover food. When I was in Brooklyn, I'd head to Pomegranate, which is like a kosher Whole Foods or Fairway. Amazing stuff. I'm try to save the schlep after work on day to pick up some great stuff for Passover. Any advice on a closer place?

Thanks.
