Gaucho Grill White Plains, NY

It looked like "Via Garibaldi" to me, but again, in moving car, it's hard to tell.

the dim sum is very good, it seems I haven't been able to coax anyone from this board there for dinner. The cantonese specialties are excellent. We typically order peking duck and a noodle dish, plenty of food for four of us.

Harbor Harvest, Norwalk: what goes on there?

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:50:38 GMT

Took a leisurely Sunday drive out to Norwalk from our Westchester digs and popped into Harbor Harvest. Sipped on a container of fresh in-house coffee as we surveyed the place. It is a rustic market divided into different food sections, with a mostly local bent. The micro-greens were growing in their temperature controlled cabinet, watercress I noticed. Canned and jarred goods. The meat counters and produce section were not as hearty as usual, probably due to the off-season. The staff seemed to be preparing for an off-premise catering event on the community table. I can see how the place must bustle during the warmer months with its close proximity to the boatyards. We decided to move on, but not before picking up a jar of tomato sauce from The Meatball Shop, of all places. We will return in late spring or summer. While in Norwalk, we decided to cross over the bridge into SoNo for a bite at SoNo Baking Co. & Café on Water St. Owner/Chef/Baker John Barricelli had worked for Martha Stewart, if you recall. The display cases were loaded with a tempting variety pastries, cakes, pies and breads. The Café was busy at brunch time but we managed to find a seat within minutes. Off the menu, we ordered a Ham & Cheese Croissant and California Avocado Toast to share. With every bite, the warmed crumbly croissant oozed its melted cheesy center. The avocado toast was served on a delicious house made multigrain bread with a pile of well-dressed mesclun salad. Spotted a display patter of Sarah Bernhardt cookies when we came in and had to have some for dessert. One of my favorite cookies and decadent! Got a fresh baquette for our trip home...

Patricia Murphy's in Yonkers

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 14:29:50 GMT

The strange thing about Patricia Murphy's on LI was that if a man came in without a jacket, they would give you this thin grey cotton jacket that looked like something a clerk would wear in one of the old style retail stores. Most men, after that would wear a jacket the next time, to prevent the degradation of wearing one of the restaurant furnished jackets. ~Fred19

'Erin Go Bragh': where to for St. Patrick's Day?

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 14:24:10 GMT

Well, we made it to Dunne's Pub in White Plains for an hour of 'blarney' and one of the best Corned Beef Reuben sandwiches in the county. Great fun, it was a happening and this was mid-afternoon. Left there for Mamma Francesca Italian Restaurant in New Rochelle, that's right, Mamma Francesca, where we shared a heaping platter of Corned Beef & Cabbage with boiled potato. Nick, the owner, has been marking St. Patrick's Day for many years. He personally enjoys his corned beef, and I must say, it was tender and delicious! Brought some home... Have not made it to McLean Ave. yet, but the Yonkers St. Patrick's Day Parade is scheduled for Saturday, March 24th at 1 p.m. May hit Rory Dolan's. We had a fine time there last year...

A very good question. I'm glad they're doing a good lunch business.

Fin & Brew, Peekskill

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 21:19:25 GMT

Thanks. I think we'll give it a try on Thursday. Apparently there was an "Instagrazers" dinner there last night hosted by Valley Table for their Instagram fans (which doesn't include me). One person posted that they regretted not getting the chicken. The Brussels sprouts side sounded interesting. Good to hear about the parfait, I think I'll get something else.

Fairway Market private label ice cream is darn good...

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 02:15:34 GMT

Wegman's is excellent. I don't know who makes it, but since they are Upstate NY based, I'm guessing Perry's, which is based in Buffalo.

Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, Mar 2018

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 17:08:01 GMT

Madison Kitchen finally posted on their FB page that their HVRW menu is the same as last time -- any 3 small plates and a dish of Bona Bona ice cream. They're also doing Saturday and Sunday brunch with the same deal. I really liked the tuna last time (normally $18!) and my wife and daughter enjoyed the steak. My wife really liked the eggplant meatballs (one of the cheaper dishes).

Looking for Hudson Restaurant Recs

Sun, 11 Mar 2018 21:02:25 GMT

sorry, can't help too much as when we go, it's always for lunch. We like oak pizzeria Neopolitana, they have a good oven and the pizza is excellent (though of course there's great pizza in brooklyn).

'10 Restaurants that Changed America' at Bartow-Pell, March 15

Fri, 02 Mar 2018 13:51:12 GMT

Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum on Shore Road in the Bronx, near the Westchester-Pelham border, is sponsoring a discussion by author Ken Freedman of his book: '10 Restaurants that Changed America', on Thursday evening, March 15th, starting at 7 p.m. Admission for non-members is $10. Freedman's book offers some controversial historical perspective, but it is interesting...

Stopped in for a quick snack and enjoyed their Jumbo Shrimp wrapped in Bacon, served on a bed of frisee salad with a light flavorful vinaigrette...

Where to eat after the Orchid Show at NYBG, Bronx...

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 23:31:18 GMT

A little more background - As I said, it should be a pleasant detour on your way to Belmont/Arthur Ave. (or elsewhere). A real "neighborhood' as you can read in the comments attached to the blog entry above.

If they are real slices whether thick or thin, then OK. But the preformed molded patties are terrible.

Luka's Italian Cuisine opens in White Plains...

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 14:00:40 GMT

After months of renovation, Luka's opened this past weekend in the space that previously housed Ernesto's on W. Post Road, White Plains. The multi-sectioned space looks fresh and new, the enclosed bar area sparkles, and the dining rooms airy with well-spaced tables surrounded by antique white/pastel walls and pastoral artworks. Luka, who is related to the Tre Angelina Restaurant family and has worked for Coco Pazzo and Michael Jordan's Steakhouse, noted that a new wine cellar is in the works downstairs and it will be available for private gatherings. The catering room already holds about 100. For our first meal, we ordered a Hot Antipasto for two as a starter. It could have made an entire meal, a platter filled with tasty baked clams, fried calamari, eggplant rollatini and stuffed mushrooms. We split an order of pasta: Fettuccine Bolognese, and the fresh meat sauce was outstanding. Had not had a good Bolognese sauce in a while and this was a treat. We followed with a split order of classic Vitello Saltimbocca, medallions of veal topped with prosciutto di Parma & melted mozzarella in a rosemary wine sauce, served with a bed of spinach and mashed potatoes. Another blast from the past, and totally enjoyable. For dessert a portion of Linzer Tort was easily sharable, too. We did take some home. It was lunchtime, after all...

A good meal at Sedona Taphouse, Mamaroneck...

Sun, 25 Feb 2018 13:17:02 GMT

We sometimes like to take in a meal between crowds. It was about 4 pm on Saturday when we entered Sedona Taphouse on Boston Post Road, Mamaroneck. The first wave had emptied out, and we were promptly seated and handed the daily menu along with several beer and spirits menus. The Taphouse prides itself on over 500 craft beer selections. Well, the concept is a bit quirky. The place is called Sedona, yet there is hardly an item on the bill of fare that suggests Arizona or the Southwest. They do however seem to have a healthier bent on the offerings. Maybe that's it. We started with a pound of Southwest Roasted Wings, crusted, smoky and meaty, served with a good Ranch dressing and celery sticks. Followed with mains of: Bourbon Pork Chop, bourbon glazed, served with garlic whipped potatoes and steamed broccoli. The chop, served on the bone, had plenty of flavor. The sides melded well. Also had one of their specials of the day: the 8 oz. wagyu Alpine Burger, served with layers of cheese, sautéed onion and mushrooms and a touch of truffle oil. The burger came with 2 sides and when we asked about our choice our waiter noted the burger already came with fries. ( Neither fries or burgers are listed on the regular menu.) Ok. Got the fries, which were shoestring style, and an 'extra' side of bacon succotash for $3. It was prepared medium as ordered and did have a fine juicy flavor. We ended the meal by sharing a slice of creamy Salted Caramel Cheesecake. Oh, yes, with all the craft beers available, I went with one of my favorites: a glass of Bronx Pale Ale. Apparently, Sedona Taphouse has grown. They now have restaurants from Kentucky, Charlottesville, VA. to their home base in Norwalk, CT.
