7 Dining Updates Worth Noting in Westchester This December

A pizzeria in Harrison, a Mexican hotspot in Elmsford, an Irish pub in Peekskill, and more make the month delicious.

In the space that last held Curry on Purdy is now Patsy’s Pizzeria of Harrison (7 Purdy St; 914.848.4640; patsyspizzeriaofharrison.com). Starters include scarpariello wings, fried spaghetti, and arancini stuffed with spinach, fontina, and Parmesan. There are 10 pies to sample, from one with chopped clams and garlic confit to a mortadella pizza with goat cheese, pistachios, and mozzarella. This is the second Westchester franchise (the other is in New Rochelle) of the original Patsy’s, open in East Harlem since 1933.

Invito Restaurant (210 Saw Mill River Rd, Elmsford; 914.909.0191; invitorestaurantny.com) was scheduled to have opened by press time. The menu is traditional Mexican fare, including seared salmon with smoked ancho chili sauce; a pan-roasted half chicken in a mole sauce; chili relleno; and plantain-wrapped and steamed Chilean sea bass in a roasted poblano cream sauce.

Irish pub Slainte (21 S Division St, Peekskill; 914.639.2488; slaintepeekskill.com) has opened in the space that formerly housed The Pink Iguana and The Eagle Saloon.

Located within Holy Crab Cajun Seafood — yes, that’s two restaurants in one space — is the new 32 Pho Vietnamese Noodles (32 Mamaroneck Ave, White Plains; 914.946.1534; 32pho.com). On the menu: summer rolls, banh mi, vermicelli noodle bowls, six types of pho, and a lemongrass pork chop with rice. All menu items are $17 or less.

Mama Mia Dessert Bar (Rye Ridge Shopping Center, 104 S Ridge St, Rye Brook), serving taiyaki (Japanese fish-shaped cake with red bean filling), mochi doughnuts, shaved snow (a cold dessert that falls between ice cream and shaved ice), and Korean corn dogs, was scheduled to have opened by press time.

The TaSH Farmers Market (tashfarmersmarket.org) was ranked the No. 2 farmers’ market in New York State by the nationwide contest from the American Farmland Trust and the Farmers Market Coalition.
