Apple Pie (Westchester County)

Assuming I wasn't just lucky once with a good batch, Riviera's is the new pie to beat. Orchard's is good though and the most convenient when the farmers markets are open.

What's wrong with Los Abuelos?

Apple Pie (Westchester County)

Ok, I might be there in the next few weeks and will pick one up.....

I almost bought one the last time I was at Fairway and might still, but Riviera's is tough to beat.

Orchards of Conklin sells at many of the community farmers markets, there's one or two other bakeries/growers further north that do also. Mount Kisco's parking meters keep me away, but Chappaqua isn't bad, that Susan Lawrence sounds like a place I should check out.

Looking for Fried Scallops / Shrimp in Westchester

I was there during the summer, went a little overboard after seeing the low prices and got a large fish and chips and a macaroni salad. The fish was way greasy and mostly breading. Some people here like the place though and that's fine. My usual pick for fish and chips around here is City Limits (more of a diner style than classic version, but very fresh). La Mer seafood in Armonk does it well, their cole slaw is kind of lame but they give you garlic bread and their lemonade is good and cheap.

HELP! I want to order thai delivery - White Plains

You're about a 10-15 min drive from D Thai in Thornwood, try it.

Apple Pie (Westchester County)

Ok, we have a winner. Got one for $13, a "small" (regular to large size anywhere else). You're right about the filling Bloombee. The high crust scared me initially, almost like an Indian poori bread. I should've gone here right away, despite the distance.

I wasn't sure if they still offered the shrimp and fries lunch but confirmed a few days ago that they do. Bought one for 8 bucks plus 1.25 for a half pound of cole slaw. Came with store mixed tartar sauce (lots of pickle) and ketchup packets.Pretty good indeed.

Any Westchester restaurants host Passover seders or meals?

I thought I heard that, but they never turned off their website (neither did Ebb Tide)

Any Westchester restaurants host Passover seders or meals?

The only non chinese food kosher restaurants I know of in the county are Epsteins, Bloom's, and Kisco (all delis pretty much). These offer seder items for takeout instead of full dinner service. If your parents are willing to travel a bit further to Manhattan and can get seats there is a bit more to choose from:

Blueberry Pancakes in Rockland/Westchester

I was there months ago and the kitchen was sooo slow. The waitress was very efficient and BEAUTIFUL! but I've been reluctant to return nonetheless. It was probably a fluke judging from the good reviews.

I've had City Limits' pancakes only once but their menu has buttermilk and whole wheat griddle cakes with a choice of strawberry, blueberry, or chocolate chip topping. I just prefer pancakes with fresh blueberries in the batter.

Any good versions in Westchester?

British or Irish sausages

I think across from Eileen's on McLean Ave there's an Irish butcher that has these

Looking for Fried Scallops / Shrimp in Westchester

I've looked for fried shrimp in Westchester with mixed results (click the link that Valerie posted). You probably want a New England fish shack, something Westchester lacks and lower Fairfield only has at higher prices (more mid than lower: Osetra, Westfair, Rowayton Seafood??? Haven't tried them but did some research).

Westchester Sunday Brunch for a Large Group

I will, thanks

I miss Bengal Tiger......

Yes it's nice they don't want their customers to feel lonely, but a spacious, quiet atmosphere is much better with chicken tandoori than the immediately adjacent Doris and Mildred talking about their coupons to Bed Bath and Beyond.

bartaco experience

Next to Willett House in Port Chester (along the water near Costco, in the spot where Ebb Tide used to be).

Moderne Barn or North in Armonk?

Yeah this whole "we're going to have a website but not answer such meaningless questions as what kind of food do we serve and for how much" can be irksome. I guess they think that menus are for Denny's.

westchester deli's

Dante's at 10:45 a.m. (early lunch) is actually not that long a wait :)

westchester deli's

Dante's on Central Ave White Plains (near TJ Maxx) and Cosmo and Alex in Mamaroneck are well liked too.

By the way, let me know if you find that sandwich with veal

Westchester Sunday Brunch for a Large Group

How much is their Sunday Brunch per person for 2-4 people (not a group rate obviously)? Peter Kelly's are $38 base, but the Kittle website doesn't say.

Nathan's/Yonkers/Central Ave

Yes I recall seeing them pretty recently, but ever since Jello Pudding Pops I've learned to take nothing for granted.

Nathan's/Yonkers/Central Ave

I guess we can only be picky about so many types of foods (you've seen my threads on apple pie and fried shrimp). Hamburgers are more my thing, but I wanted to try the most reputable hot dog stands and by some amazing coincidence of geography we Westchester people have Walters in our midst. Papaya King was well recommended and Sabrett is on every Manhattan street corner so I sampled those also. Yes, the red fork was awesome, now I'll have to pick up an order this weekend (and a hot dog too it seems).

Nathan's/Yonkers/Central Ave

My draw to Nathan's were the french fries (there was also a Nathan's frozen supermarket version that may still be around). I can't tell the difference between a regular and gourmet hot dog: Papaya King, Walter's, Sabrett all taste the same to me.

Apple Pie (Westchester County)

I've never had the privilege but knowing their reputation and several graduates I can believe it's the best. If only they opened a retail shop further south. Any other ideas?

Apple Pie (Westchester County)

Elisa and corky: I do want to try Big W and Salingers but it's far, being close to that part of 684 and 22 is still far.

fragnet: I'm way too lazy to bake, you're right though it's the best way to guarantee a devoted preparation. Most commercial establishments have the skill but get so busy that it's just assembly line fare.

Apple Pie (Westchester County)

Yep, the last thing any of us need is a Griswold-style Wally World moment. The website's advice is similar:

Brewster, hmmmm. It's a drive, but maybe one day. I've been apple picking up in/near Putnam just not lately. Your recommendation is pretty compelling though.
