Not that an intrepid restaurant-goer ever needs an excuse to dine out on great food, but if you do, Eastchester is the place and Restaurant Week March 18-31 is the time. However, it would behoove you to make your reservations well in advance.
Thats right, the seventh annual Hudson Valley Restaurant Week is just around the corner. And this year, its bigger than ever. We were just blown away, says Nancy Gold, a spokeswoman for the event, of the overwhelming interest. Were up to 198 participating restaurants in seven counties.
The participating restaurant in Eastchester is Polpettina Homestyle Pizza Kitchen . Polpettina means little meatball in Italian, and that little meatball is at the heart of almost everything served in this casual restaurant and market, which features fresh and locally sourced goods. Owners and chefs Kyle Inserra and Mike Abruzese serve up everything from salads and sandwiches to pizza and the eponymous polpettinas, in addition to seasonally oriented specials.
Eat out for lunch ($20.95) or for dinner ($29.95), and remember to tip your server. Tax and beverages are not included in the special price.
The list of other participating restaurants in nearby towns reads like a dining guide to New York State: Bistro Rollin (Pelham), Le Jardin du Roi (Chappaqua), Rubys Oyster Bar & Bistro (Rye), Tarry Lodge (Port Chester), Trevi Ristorante (West Harrison), Moderne Barn (Armonk) and hundreds more.
