A couple of recent big restaurant news items in the area.
First, Eric Gabrynowicz is leaving Restaurant North in Armonk to move to NC. The current executive sous chef is taking over. I feel sad about this since I’ve gotten to know Eric over the years and he’s always treated us very well, and we’ve had some very good meals there.
Next, Peter Kelly is selling Freelance Cafe and Xaviar’s in Piermont. He will keep X2O and Restaurant X and Bully Boy Bar. He’s selling to someone from Seattle. In fact, it might have happened already since the article says it was going to close late in September. The new owner is supposedly keeping the names for now. One positive I noticed is that Freelance is now listed on Opentable, although reservations were not available yet. So maybe it won’t be walk-in only anymore. On the other hand, the discounted gift cards from Costco (which I didn’t see on my last visit) won’t work anymore.
