Hudson Valley Restaurant Week - March 9-22, 2015

I went to Ramiros 954 in Mahopac, I have nothing bad to say, sat at the bar, got Happy Hour prices on the drinks and ordered the restaurant week menu. All three courses were great, huge portions, beautiful presentations, the main course I got the pork shank...was incredible... great service too...highly recommend

Great crab legs in Westchester or Putnam

I'm still voting King Buffet in Peekskill, all you can eat and under $20

Where do you eat at the Palisades Mall?

Yardhoue food is terrible, all frozen food

The Hudson Room - new restaurant in Peekskill

I ate here, Had the porkchop entree which was absolutely great...Steak quesadilla app, was also delicious but too small for the price. Spicy tuna roll was just as good as any other place i've been, maybe I need to try a more adventurous roll to get the true experience...Good beer selection. Too much of a "snotty" vibe for me, it's downtown peeksill, loosen up your tie and relax a little. Menu looks good there was a few other dishes I'm interested in, I'll be back eventually, Too many places opening in Peekskill, got to try em all!

The RoundUp Texas BBQ .....In Cold Spring, NY......Excellent! ! !

Went there today, I've been there many times but brought a couple first timers.... My opinion has not changed it is amazing food, very amazing...not better than big w's however much easier of a drive for me. The staff is extremely friendly and it's always great seeing the owner or chef of a place walk around and say hi and ask how the food was. I will be back many more times to come. Not pictured but the sausage is great, easily the highlight of today's meal, followed by the ribs, Big W's sides are just so much better but the mac n cheese is good...mash potatoes, OK.

Lunch in Cold Spring?

Avoid the Cold Spring depot.........I can't recommend anything in walking distance but right on the edge of cold spring is round-about texas bbq and it is amazing.

Big E: 2014 food finds

Going on Monday can not wait, went the last 3 years!

AJs fish and chips, ossining

Dang I need to check that out

Ridge Hill New Eating Options:

Unlike Elevation Burger, 5 Napkin is a full service restaurant.

Cortlandt Manor Area

The Mac'n'Cheese is worth it

Lake George, any hound worthy take out spots?

Martha's for Ice Cream, Saltwater Cowboy I think is new but judging by what I read it's the new best thing in Lake George, seems like a big take out seafood place. Lastly of course there is the classic A&W roadside food stand

Brother Jimmy's BBQ [White Plains]

I went to the Union Square location didn't think it was bad for what it is, The wings were great and the Nacho's were a giant giant portion

Cortlandt Manor Area

Table 9 is good

Chopped: Hannah Hopkins of Dish in Ma HO pac

Lived in Mahopac almost 20 years, everyone says MAY-o-pack....the Muh Ho Pac way of saying it is how the old timers and high society types say it

German Food in Lower Hudson Valley?

Goulash in Danbury is wonderful, it's an Austrian restaurant but it might be worth a try for you, everything is fresh and made to order by an elderly austrian man who owns the place with his wife who'm seats and takes the orders.

juice/smoothies??? lower westchester

Juices For Life just opened in Yonkers, not in the best neighborhood but I hear the product is excellent.

Great crab legs in Westchester or Putnam

King Buffet in Peekskill, not bad

Best BBQ in Westchester?

Big W's chicken is one the the best and most jucy I have ever had so open your mind to it, Big W is king as far as BBQ is concerned, B-B-Q's in shrub oak is nothing special imo, good for locals, not worth traveling to. The place in cold spring is great too...texas something or other

Wild Fusion in Mohegan Lake?

Yeah I like it too, good sushi

Best BBQ in Westchester?

Q in Portchester is pretty good. http://www.qrestaurantandbar.com/

Best BBQ in Westchester?

Holy smokes chorizo is excellent, the only reason I go there and all though not nearly my favorite place, holy smoke is what a mile away from Bob-B-Que and it is better.

Memphis Mae's BBQ Bistro in Croton on Hudson

Yeah ive never had a problem there, I like the personable staff and the creative specials.

White Plains

Emma's Ale house in WP's. Love it.

Sociable bars (or places in general) in Westchester

Just noticed how old this thread is but for anyone interested in their 20's I HATE the white plains scene as well.

I will agree with the commenters that mentioned peekskill I love both the brewery and birdsall and both are usually packed on weekend nights.

Tarrytown I love Bridgeview Tavern and the owner is such a nice guy too.

Bartaco in Portchester, especially in the summer....awesome!

Sociable bars (or places in general) in Westchester

Love both these places, I'm 27 and live about 30 minutes from Peekskill. Birdsall has an awesome "Beer Garden" style outdoor seating with tables for eating and picnic tables for drinking, always crowded on a hot summer day.

Lake George Restaurant Recommendations

I've been to Lake George the last 4 summers in a row and I must agree the dining is not too great. With that being said the one place I absolutely go to every year is the Barnsider it's a BBQ restaurant right on the main road just up from the strip. The food has always been good, the prices are fair and the portions are huge! Plus they have outside seating.

Besides that I have yet to find a place "in town" that I ever must go back to. I do return to the boardwalk restaurant mainly for the amazing views of the lake, not as much for the food but it is edible lol.

Less than a half hour away I would recommend the Silo in Queensbury it has excellent lunch but I don't think it has a dinner service but I could be wrong.

Here's a couple of links for you (I love Lake George)

Best of Lake George as voted on by the people:

The Barnsider (my personal fave

The Silo

When are you going btw?

Goulash Place (Danbury CT)

oh they have tons of options, I can't wait to return

Goulash Place (Danbury CT)

I haven't seen a thread dedicated to this place yet so I figured I'd share my experience.

As what I consider to be a "foodie" I am constantly looking for new places to check out. Often the smaller off the beaten trail hole in the wall type places can be the best. My friends and I found this place simply be searching Yelp for the higher rated joints in the Brewster/Danbury area. Goulash Place has overwhelmingly excellent reviews, one of the best and most consistently high rated places on the danbury list! We new we had to try it. As a lover of the very similar german style foods we GPS'ed it, because we never heard of the street it was on, and set off from Carmel, NY. We got there late towards their closing time of 9pm. The old woman greeted us all smiles and sat us. Drinks came promptly. The food was simply incredible. Reminded me of grandmas home cooking. Everything was fresh and you could tell the old man in the back put time and effort into each dish. I had the "special plate" which is pictured all though not my picture, and it was amazing. The stuffed veal was especially unforgettable. My friends got the two different kinds of goulash and they were both excellent as well. We had a brief chat with the old man who cooked the food, he is the owner, and told him the very high internet reviews brought us here which led to a humorous conversation about how he does not use computers.

Anyways I just wanted to bring some attention to this place as it deserves. 8:15pm on a thursday and we were the only ones there, If you're in the area, try this place, you won't regret it.

Candlelight Inn - It's been seven years [Scarsdale]

I was at Candlelight a few days ago I must say they now carry 6 or 7 local craft beer's on tap which was a really great addition! They also apparently opened a location somewhere in Florida.

bars and "nightlife" in Mystic?

i think the town shuts down at 8pm lol good luck
