It’s almost that time again, Fall HVRW starts in 3 weeks. The list has been posted and a few menus are up. Since I’m retired and have lots of free time I have been trying to do lunch since it’s $10 cheaper and often has a similar menu.
Last time we tried Hudson Valley Steakhouse in Yorktown and really enjoyed our meal. Not enough to go back at their inflated regular prices but definitely enough to go back for HVRW. They’re even doing lunch so I think we’ll go then since the menu (and hopefully portion size) is the same for both lunch and dinner. They apparently got busy for dinner last time so reservations are recommended. And the lot in front of them has finally been cleared (it had been blocking their sign) so you can now see them from Route 202 (across from BJ’s). BTW the same menu shows as a $39.95 price fixed menu on their website, so it’s $7 less for HVRW at dinner and $17 less for lunch.
We had lunch at Maria’s in New Rochelle last time and enjoyed it and will definitely go back. I see that Locali in Mt. Kisco is participating so we’ll try to get there, maybe also for lunch (and on Thursday because the MK lot is free then, and yes I am cheap but paying for parking bothers me). Also had dinner at Liberty Street Bistro in Newburgh and it was good but not as amazing as I expected.
One new place that is interesting is Le Moulin Eatery & Wine Bar in Yonkers. I saw them on Restaurant Hunter and it looked interesting. They are only participating Thursday-Saturday (that may be when they’re open). Their menu is here. It doesn’t thrill me but others may like it.
Another newcomer is Nadine’s Restaurant in Yorktown (the German place where Jennifer’s used to be). Their menu is here.
As usual I have my lunch reservation at American Bounty at the CIA already. We always enjoy it there, especially when I can get a table across from the open dessert prep kitchen.
Did anyone have a nice meal somewhere last time? BTW Valley in Garrison is not listed again so I suspect they are no longer doing HVRW. Just as well since I don’t have to make a decision about whether to go or not.
