hudson restaurant, briarcliff manor, ny

Funny thing is the food - for the most part - worked and they fired the chef??

...unless he got fed up and left on his own accord...

A unique dining experience to say the least. Here you have a beautiful scenic country home restaurant(think Kittle House only prettier) where the food is very enjoyable. That said - I've never experienced a more mismanaged dining establishment. What follows is just the facts - Over the course of dinner our waiter changed 4 times. Some employees do nothing and frown while others do all. The bartender walks around with his shirt out. Our apps and main courses came out rather quickly then we were forgotten. We waited a 1/2 hour for our cheese plate then it comes incomplete. We get overcharged I return the bill. There's more but "Nuff Said". Shame - with better management this place would work.

North Fork - never been. Need restaurants

Noah's - 136 Front Street - Fantastic
Recommended by locals - we went both nights.
Stick w/the "Taste"/"Small Plates side of the menu - you'll have a wonderful dining experience.
Also - We stayed at the Harborfront Inn across the street.
Very comfortable but parking spaces doesn't cover the # of guests.
Thinking of doing a wine tour - Vintage Tours - Jo-Ann does a great informative tour - 4 wineries - w/plenty of tasting.
Have a great time!

good chow in Scarsdale... FOUND! Meritage

Went there once - awful experience - never again!

La Bocca in White Plains catching it's stride...

Had a wonderful meal there last night.
Started with cabbage (very tasty) / bread followed by the antipasti tray (fantastic layout) and calamari (very fresh). We had the Red Snapper Special / Chicken w/Fig Sauce / Gnocchi Pasta. Everything was so fresh. Dining room is fine but the bar seems to overwhelm it. Service is friendly and informative. With all the new restaurants in White Plains La Bocca doesn't seem to get the press it deserves. Shame - quality stuff here!
