The “cousins from Boston” went down to Mamaroneck for Thanksgiving (reported on the WFD Nov thread). With 3 kids 9 and under, we had to get out of the house on the beautiful Friday after. We visited the Hudson River Museum for the first time (great museum that kids and adults alike enjoyed). We needed lunch close by as some were entering hangry territory, so we chose Fortina Yonkers and it was a good choice. Our Spring Onion and his cousins loved the margherita. The 6 adults dug into funghi white pizza, the Ray’s (basically like a NYC slice), the tenderoni, Paulie’s pie with Sunday sauce/meatballs. Two good big salads, one with just arugula and the other the pizzeria salad. Nice light creamy dressing for the latter. Lambrusco, IPAs for beverages. Friendly service and cool space.
We stayed with B’s sister for 1 night (on the border of Old Greenwich/Stamford). We snacked at lunch and then they ordered takeout from Applausi for dinner. Honestly, the food was good (we’ve eaten their food on previous visits) but not terribly interesting or earth-shattering and overpriced, but it’s a place that they know and love. And they opened a nice bottle of wine. A really comfy cozy evening spent with family. There was an asparagus app, paccheri with mushroom, linguine and clams, spaghetti and meatballs, a very big chicken Milanese. Didn’t take photos of the plated food.
