#HVRW is upon us..I love trying out new restaurants and Hudson Valley Restaurant Week is the perfect time to do so. It runs Nov 2- 15th, $20.95 for lunch and 29.95 for dinner and it includes appetizer, entrée, and dessert from a special pre fix menu. I have researched the choices and these are my top picks from looking at the menu’s and other fellow foodie input. After I try each restaurant I will update my blog and let you know what I think!
The Parlor – Cute lil pizza place in Dobbs Ferry, NY. I came here for lunch with a friend. Started with the dirty salad( fresh mozzarella, sopressata, sesame seeds) followed by a delicious brick oven Sopressata pie(they give you scissors to slice, very cute )! Ended it with the Brookie (warm gooey cookie topped with vanilla ice cream )
River City Grille in Irvington, NY: I had a great dinner with my family at this restaurant. Delicious food and great service! For starters I had the fried calamari, my entree was the braised beef brisket that was highly recommended by the waiter (so glad I listened) and finished with a classic Creme Brûlée ..
Red Hat on The River also in Irvington, NY. I have been dying to try this restaurant but I could never get a reservation. I stopped by for a late Lunch this Friday and luckily enough there was a table for me.. Hostess and wait staff were so friendly! Beautiful restaurant and comfortable seating! I had the vegetable soup (butternut squash, potatoes, carrot, parsley, and thyme) to start since it was a windy day I wanted something to warm me up.. It was delicious! For entree I went with the Steamed Mussels swimming in a garlic wine sauce and Frites(soo good!). Then for dessert I had a pumpkin caramel custard that reminded of flan..and I love flan! Wine list was incredible I chose a red wine from Portugal. This was a big hit and a great way to end #HVRW!
Zuppa in Yonkers, NY – Their pasta at the Best of Westchester Party had me wanting more!
Cedar Street Grill in Dobbs Ferry, NY – I have been dying to try their Shrimp and Grits.. also going on a Wednesday is a plus! Oyster Night and Live Music! My fav cocktail is the Hudson Daiquiri !
