Fig and Olive opening in Scarsdale!

I have to agree with mla 19. I do not found the food very uninspiring and I could do without the attitude. They refuse to alter their menu and I mean I asked them if they could leave chicken off the salad.

Mother's day recommendations.. Know it is early but..

Hello everyone,
I am looking for a nice place (hopefully with a view) to take my mother out for mother's day. I know I am kind of early but I am really excited as she lives overseas and this is first time in 10 years, I get to celebrate mother's day with her. We live in Southern Westchester and would like to go to a local place that is known for good food and hopefully has great views. The only catch is that she is vegetarian and we would need a place that has some veggie option. I also have a 2 year old and we would need a place that does not frown upon bringing young children to their establishment.
Thank you in advance!

Help me wow my vegetarian friend...cheaply.

For cheap and really good North Indian food go to 47th or 48th and 10th. I do not remember the name, only think I remember is that their sign similar to NYC taxi. There is an Indian deli's there that serve amazing home made really cheap Indian food. The place is frequented by taxi drivers. There is not much of a decor and I am pretty sure is BYOB. I can say the food reminds me of home.

Catering a Party -- Long Report

Still waiting to hear from jack. I emailed him and he said he will get back to me in a day and still have not heard from him. Do you know of anyone else whom we could get the food from?

New Indian Place in Irvington

The food in the restaurant is overpriced or as you call it Irvington price. However, the catering was beyond reasonable.

Catering a Party -- Long Report

I know this is 18 months after you have posted your review. However, I am hoping you would respond. I am planning my son's 1st birthday party and am new to the area. Based on the recommendations on this site, I contacted Standing room only for catering. They said they would call me on Monday and email me a menu. I still have not heard back from them. I am getting a little put off. How long do they take before they respond?

Can you handle spicy food? The mirchi ka salan was a hit at the party but it has a kick. I would also reccomend their black dal. I am a vegetarian so will not be able to help with non-veg items. We had chicken tikka masala, and lamb saag at the party and my guest enjoyed it.

New Indian Place in Irvington

We went to the restaurant a week after it opened. The food was pretty good but the menu is not extensive. However the chef is wonderful and he made us dishes that were not on the menu. Couple of weeks later, I had them cater a party and I have to say that I was very impressed. The quality of food was excellent and their service was impeccable. Usually, I find Indian catered food dripping with oil but these trays were done so professionally and well. Overall, a great experience. I highly recommend the place.

Best Indian Food in Lower Westchester

I disagree with mw180's review of Chutney Masala in Irvington. We had dinner in the restaurant and also had them cater a party for us. The food was exceptional and I have to say the best food I have eaten in this country so far. I am Indian and have just recently moved to the US. This food is pretty close to what you would get back home. If you are not afraid of hot food I would strongly reccomend Mirchi ka Salan.

Caterer recommendatation in Westchester

I have recently moved to Dobbs Ferry and do not know of places around here. I am hosting a party and am looking for a caterer who is good but will not break the bank. I am looking for someone who will offer decent vegetarian options.
Thanks

Resturant suggestion - Birthday Dinner

It is my husband's birthday on Thursday and our seven month old would like to take his dad out for dinner. I am looking for a nice Mexican restaurant (uptown) that is also baby friendly. It can be mid- to upscale but really good Mexican food.
Thank you

I am looking for a resturant (preferably) Indian near the water in the Hoboken area for a party in June. I amnot too familiar with the area and I am looking for a place that overlooks the water. Many people in the group are vegetarian so am thinking that Indian food would be the best option. I think there will be ablut 40 peopleand am looking to spend about $25/head.
I would appreciate any help.
