Dim Sum Westchester or Rockland County

Is Aberdeen still the only place in Westchester and/or Rockland to get Dim Sum?

If so, what's the latest review?

thanks so much!

Great chicken parm in city? Or great Asian dumplings?

My 18 yr old daughter loves chicken parm. I'd like to find a fun but really yummy place to take our family to dinner . She will be shopping in the city all day in the vintage clothing stores.

She also loves dumplings. So a fun dumpling place is great too. We are probably 7 or 8 people.

Byob would be an amazing bonus!

18 th birthday party for 10 mature young ladies. Fun atmosphere, very low cost food in January

Yunnan doesn't seem to take reservation other than occasional for less than 8 people. But it looks yummy and good location!

Some are jet setters and have seen the world in an indulgent way. My daughter( the birthday girl) has gone with them to some incredible locations but our budget is as low as it can go!
For years of birthdays, I preordered at downtown Saigon Grill and the location was good for them to hang out. That is overplayed this year.
Anywhere in city is fine and any cuisine is fine. Tall order?

Nice Westchester or Rockland place for Oysters- not too expensive

Yum! Do they have raw too? I actually was only thinking raw.

Nice Westchester or Rockland place for Oysters- not too expensive

Hi,
Looking for a not so expensive place for Oysters and a good vodka martini.

I don't like the outside at Half Moon- plastic cups is unacceptable for a Martini.

Thanks in advance!

albany for 20 year olkd birthday - inexpensive family style italian? or other suggestions?

I'm taking my SUNY daughter and her 3 roomies out to dinner Tuesday for her birthday. She understands financial limitations so anything(other than a chain resto) are fine. But maybe a decent place that could be fun?

dumplings in westchester and or near tarrytown(maybe near tappan zee if i must)

my daughter wants to go out for great dumplings for her bday this friday. I know I can go into the city and get the best around but I'm wondering if anything in my area is really good. I probably know all places in southern westchester. Just hoping to have someone tell me of a place that I haven't heard about yet.

Good singles crowd for over 40-50 yr olds on a Thursday night after work. Lower Westchester

Yes, those are more our speed- a bit more upscale than Emmas now that I see the site.
Other than Harry's in Hartsdale, is there anything not so far East of White Plains? Further West toward River?

Good singles crowd for over 40-50 yr olds on a Thursday night after work. Lower Westchester

2 of us(women) want to go out for a drink after a long day of work tonight but want a good "energy" in the place to keep us going. We just want a glass of wine and some friendly conversation. NO sports bars or 20-30yr olds.
Something, clean, crisp, upbeat, good vibe.

Help regarding ability to freeze chopped liver, and advice freezing matzo balls?

I have made pots of chicken soup and many matzoh balls- they are cooling as I type. I have to freeze them and for me it would be quite simple after cooking all morning, to freeze the whole thing together(soup and balls) in one container. I'm reading threads saying to freeze balls separate on baking sheet- too complicated. Can I throw the soup in with the balls and pop in freezer? Just till Thursday????? Help me - I'm exhausted

Try the "PLACE" in dobbs ferry- dk how it is other than it's a unique space

Westchester Bat Mitzvah

lots of art lofts in the yonkers art studio district. google art lofts. also the name I think of the place we used was "the loft" it's a dance studio also. Beware of the owner's tolerance and ignorance about parties though- it was a struggle toward the end of planning and wasn't as smooth as I'd like. I am from the hospitality business so did all of the coordinating myself- the whole thing was done by me so it is a lot of work, creativity given the space (no kitchen and VERY limited wprk space), and much much work.

cheap yummy lunch in White Plains- anything not terrible fatty.

we avoided all of the parking crap in WP and ate yummy grilled octopus at Nikkos on Central Ave. Parking at lunch time on a nice day is very difficult, especially while college shopping is in season. Great suggestions for another time- love the farmer's market stuff.!!

cheap yummy lunch in White Plains- anything not terrible fatty.

given the economic crisis, I need to find a cheap place for lunch for tomorrow in WP.
I don't ever go expensive - I love MELT and Turkish Meze but MELT really no seating and Turkish Mezze is still a good thought. Just wondering if there's anything else?
What's the pricing for the salads at Cheeburger? It's been posted as a great salad. I don't even know location or seating options.

New Lebanese restaurant in Pittsfield, MA

any suggestions for hangout spots for an 18 and a 15 yr. old girl? They can't seem to find kids their age when in the Berks with us. It's a lot of elderly and then young families. I know some parents still take their teens with them for travel. this is the first weekend we are not taking their friends so it's the sisters together on the prowl socially. Any resto's for them? Our house is in Stockbdge.

New Lebanese restaurant in Pittsfield, MA

ok. so I am trying to read about all of the "new restaurants in Pittsfield"that are being talked about by locals in area. They say that Pittsfield is now a hotspot for food?

Seems as if every post I read is from 2010 and lots of places no longer open. Please, are the locals wrong?

Fig and Olive opening in Scarsdale!

only a few very small tables and a counter. i dont like any takeout- i think food is better right from the stove but im sure its still good! i would imagine certain times and days you cant get seating. call ahead. yum yum

delicious and well presented foods. Crazy prices but the crowd that shops and lives there ignore the bill and just give their credit cards- no thought- very well dressed well adorned crowd- very fitting with the chic decor. Always jam packed and buzzing. they found their market- kudos to them! I'll remain the rivertowns peasant using Fig and Olive for special business lunches and occasions and frequent such places like Talim Falaffel in Hastings- doesn't serve figs, doesn't serve olives. Damn good falaffel though!
