Grace's Table Gone [White Plains]

They were struggling last October, so it comes as no surprise that this occurred. A shame since they put a lot of cash into renovation.

Obvious it is a management/owner issue. There are some places where the owners are hands on and work well with managers and other places where owners are set in their ways or micromanage and it causes a cascade effect of incompetence. If the staff is the issue, its an easy fix... fire all of them!

I saw the owners interviewing and I think a new chef has started. Also they have a new manager which should bring in some new life into this place

Trattoria 632, Purchase NY

New menu and apparently my spies tell me that a new chef started as well.

Heard that they fired the head chef...I assume a new chef has been named but I have not heard who it is..

Trattoria 632, Purchase NY

Went to this restaurant recently based on the reputation of its pizza and Italian flair. Started off with a pizzette and it was great. Fresh and all the people at the table were impressed. We also ordered a slice to see what it was like. It was a lot larger then most slices that I have seen in other restaurants that are similar. Most of the people at our table had salad to start off with, their signature salad (632 Salad) was great with fresh greens, and a succulent dressing. For entrees we had pasta, Osso Bucco (on the special menu), and chicken francaise. All in all a good experience, and the place was quite crowded. We did not have time to try the Gelato but the options were amazing. We will be back

City Limits Diner, White Plains

they have re opened, I was there the other day, and all I can say is wow, totally a new restaurant look. They sank some money into this place.

not sure that I agree about the bar area wineconsul, but I will point out that they have expanded their beer and wine list. The food is still the same with some minor changes. Should be interesting to see how this plays out.

Opening day was today. Interesting decor, same menu, however there are subtle differences, new wines, beers signature cocktails and some new menu items. They are aiming for a new bar clientele.

Copperhead Grille Mahopac

Grand opening is on Wednesday August 1st. Apparently they took over the space that used to house a Mexican taco place on Route 6. Looking forward to it.

The Grappolo space in Chappaqua...

I went here for lunch and was not impressed. Mediocre salads and my octopus was just so so.

Augie's Mohegan Lake

Came across this place while driving along Rte 6, and stopped in to check out the scene. I decided that since it was mid day I would come back with my girlfriend on a Friday afternoon.

Stopped in and they have Happy Hour until 7pm which is a pretty good deal with half priced apps along with 2 for 1 draft beer. Our apps were simple food, Tomato and Mozz, Shrimp cocktail (which were enormous) and tuna tartae. All were presented in a timely fashion with skilled servers. My girlfriend had a martini from their list, and it was a generous pour and tasty. Later on, I enjoyed a glass of red wine and the pour was more than generous than most steak houses that I have been at. The scene is an interesting one. Since we sat at the bar we could not grasp their service. The place is spotless along with the bathrooms which is important since, I think that bathroom cleanliness is very important. Most of the entrees looked amazing colossal shrimp and Veal chop to name a few. I will return..

The Tavern at Croton Landing

I checked out this place for drinks on one or two ocasions but it was not for reading about them in the lohud.com paper that I then wanted to taste what they had to offer. I went with my family on a Saturday night and the place was packed. We were lucky to snatch a table and then got down to ordering. We all ordered burgers my son and wife were very pleased. I had the turkey burger which was one of the juciest turkey burgers that I ever tasted. Great meal

Went back again the week after to try their wings and pizza. I also had the BLT with turkey for take out. Again they were crowded but the staff was very friendly and attentive and again the food was very good. The pizza was simple but very good. All in all a place that I would have no hesitation to go back to.

well I apologize for the lack of a location for the place. Give it a try at some point and check it out. They have a patio that overlooks the RR tracks and I think you can see the hudson.

My family dined here for lunch this past weekend, and it was a very nice experience. I had the pasta special which was stuffed eggplant with rigatoni, my wife had the mushroom stuffed ravioli which there were ample amounts. Finally although there is no children’s menu, the staff provided a great dish of chicken tenders with French fried. He also enjoyed the authentic gelato which was very good as well. A great place, that we would return to.

Blue Hill at Stone Barn concept change

DD, I know about the menu, lucky that I eat everything, and would love some lamb neck, that would be great. We are going with other people who do not understand the concept, so it should be interesting to see how they take it. I will post my results next week.

Village Social Mt Kisco

Went here last night after having kunch a couple of weeks ago.

Place was a scene, bustling with many people at the bar and tables were full. Not loud but a good feeling...

Had two drinks to start off a beer and a mediocre Savingnon Blanc ( I am a wine snob) My wife did get to try another white as a taste , thus they are quite accomodating.

Ordered pasta's... Mine was Pappadelle with shortribs and my wife had the linguine with seafood. Both were very well cooked with good seasoning and tastes. Bill came to $64.00 and was not overpriced in my book. Both pasta dishes were entree portions, so we were quite sated. Would go back....two stars out of four.

Westchester places for lunch

went here, and what nice decor. Great wine list, with many bottles at or below $50. The ladies had salads and I had the Wild Board Pizza with a glass of Ojai Chardonay. Food was good, will be back.

Ocean House, Croton

Went in on a Sunday night and had a dozen of the oysters to start. All of them were amazing, the servers were spot on with regard to what was present on the chalkboard. I then had the gazpacho with Maine crab meat, which was very elegant and refreshing. For entree's my wife had the scallops in a mustard sauce and I had the monkfish. Both were delightful, however we wre less than impressed with the flavor of the vegetables. For dessert we tried the creme brulee and it was a mess, which they comped us for.

Zagat gave this place a 28 on food which puts them on par with Blue Hill. In no way is this food even close to a 28. 24 at best. i would go back however and eat as much oysters as the chef will allow.
