Westchester Restaurants to Try in 2016 #FoodieGoals

Westchester Restaurants to Try in 2016

I really didn’t make any Resolutions this year..Mostly because they are pointless since I can never really seem to keep them. However, I think I found something I can stick to ..New Restaurants..conveniently located in Westchester. These are places I have been meaning to check out…  I figure since Spring #HVRW will  be upon us in March.. I can def make it happen..

These are at the top of my list:

  
Polpettina in Eastchester, NY: I dunno how I work right down the street and I still have been unable to try out Polpettina (which means lil meatball in Italian). I’m already a regular in Burrata, soo I def have to check out what Polpettina has to offer!

Salataire Oyster Bar in Portchester, NY :  recommended by the Fabulous Intoxikate … she had me at Oyster Bar! This place looks fabulous and it is located in a Century Old Historic Grain Warehouse. I will be taking my mom here later this month to celebrate her Birthday!

Zuppa in Yonkers, NY : Pasta was ahhmazing at the BOW2015 Party .. I need to get to downtown Yonkers stat for a real experience!

Talk About #FoodieGoals

 

Fall #HVRW

#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!

L’inizzio’s   Ardsley, NY – I have heard such great things about this place and thanks to #intoxikate #forkthis I will be checking it out!

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 !
