Need recs for small wedding in Westchester

Tarrytown House does catering as well. They will do a small party.

Harvest on Hudson is only good if they put you on main floor. I don't think they have an elevator to the second floor room.

Le Provencal in Mamaroneck has a private room.

Fancy Lunch in Westchester

If you were going on a Tuesday to eFriday, I would recommend X20 in Yonkers - they have a special lunch for $25.

Where to buy Thai ingredients in Westchester

Try Kam Seh in White Plains (in the DMV building ) They have everything!!!

Need some help around Tarrytown - in town for a wedding ...

Go up route 448 and visit Stone Barns. Look at the animals and eat at the cafe.
In Dobbs Ferry, Tomatillo has burritos and various beers. very casual.
There is another Greek place in Sleepy Hollow, Santorini, which is pretty good.

She closed for the winter but is re-opening around Memorial Day.

Hurricanes for Mardi Gras

I found a box of passion fruit juice in the Spanish section of the local supermarket. I used the recipe above and made a pitcher and a half. Served over ice and guests weren't feeling any pain.

CSA in Westchester

There's a CSA that delivers to Tarrytown that also has 1/2 shares. There isn't any choice (take it or leave it) but the veggies were very fresh. Contact for more information.

Dining at the Bar in Rockland/Westchester

I've had dinner at the bar at Freelance Cafe a few times and it was quite enjoyable.

Also went to Stone Barns on a Friday night (around 7) and got two seats at the bar!! They have a 3 course prix fixe for $45, with a few less choices (and $20 less cost) than the "regular" 3 course. You also can get anything from the menu or bar specials.

Nearby (hour or less by car from NYC) place to buy farm fresh produce? [Moved from Manhattan board]

Season is almost over but there are farmer markets every Saturday in Hastings, Tarrytown, Ossining, Pleasantville, etc. Veggies and fruit are really fresh; some have meat, honey, breads, etc.

baby goat meat for sale?

If you are in Northern NJ, then go to Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. There are quite a few good butchers.

Recommendations in Irvington or Tarrytown for rehearsal dinner

Pete's Saloon in Elmsford has a private room. I don't know if it is big enough for your party. They have music (sometimes live).

Coffee purveyors

Coffee Labs on Main Street in Tarrytown has pumpkin spice coffee.

They roast the coffee there and everything is great!!

Blue Hill at Stone Barns

The bar at BHSB has about 9 seats where you can eat dinner. First come, first served. Sometimes you have to wait a long time. I was lucky, arrived at 7PM on a Friday a month ago and was seated immediately. Sometimes you get lucky - we had a wonderful meal.

Westchester Restaurant - outdoor/garden for bridal shower?

Another suggestion: Xaviers is supposed to open in Yonkers real soon.
The place is over the Hudson, walk from the train station. Contact them at another location (or through web site) to find out menu and prices.

need casual place for dinner in newport, middletown or bristol on Friday of Memorial Day weekend. Also place for breakfast Sunday morning. May be a group of us going out.

Westchester Restaurant - outdoor/garden for bridal shower?

Harvest on the Hudson (in Hastings) - on the Hudson side but really good.

I will be hostessing a baby and bridal shower (2 parties) in the near future. Need suggestions for places. Alternatively, I can have them in my apartment and need suggestions for catering.
