    On a remote corner in North Salem, nestled between bucolic hills and pastoral horse farms, sits Auberge Maxime, one of Westchester’s most intimate and winning restaurants.

  • Restaurant Review: Guida’s (3 Stars)

      Nestled between provincial storefronts and across the street from an Episcopalian church sits Guida’s, a bastion of gracious dining in Ossining for nearly 11 years. No haven for the avant-garde, Guida’s charm lies rather in its steadfast admiration for tradition and family. To this day, the three founding Guida brothers continue to man their […]

  • Restaurant Review: Sonora (3 Stars)

    Latin flavors in Port Chester   Although nuevo—the opening was in May—Sonora has already garnered a loyal throng of fans, delighting diners with what owner and executive chef Rafael Palomino calls “Bistro Latino” cuisine.

  • Restaurant Review: Harvest on Hudson (3 Stars)

    Breathtaking views to dine by   Walking into Harvest on Hudson is slightly surreal. And completely  breathtaking. After you stroll past a beautiful and charming vegetable garden by a tranquil expanse of the Hudson River, you arrive at what appears to be the lobby of a rural but sophisticated lodge. Watch out, the inner sanctum […]
