Westchester is no stranger to incursions from NYC’s celebrity chefs. Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s eponymous Pound Ridge restaurant hit its fifth year in 2019; you’ll actually find Michael Psilakis at Irvington’s MP Taverna with surprising regularity; and celebrated chef Michael White came (and went) at the Bedford Post Inn. As of September 3, multi-appearance Top Chef favorite Dale Talde will join their ranks with the opening of Goosefeather at the Tarrytown House Estate.
Housed in the 1840 King House Mansion building, the 180-seat restaurant is an ode to the cuisine of Hong Kong, emphasizing dumplings, noodle dishes, and Cantonese barbecue. Like at Talde’s previous restaurants, expect posh and playful upgrades on traditional fare, such as dry-aged beef pot stickers, char siu Berkshire pork, crab rice with jalapeño aioli and trout roe, and pineapple shaved-iced sundaes. Ben Pope, formerly chef-owner of now-closed Mr. Koo’s Kitchen in Irvington, serves at executive chef.
The beverage program, overseen by GM Carlos Baz, showcases classic cocktails with Hong Kong-inspired twists like the Post Paloma (tequila, cantaloupe, and yuzu kosho), and the green-tea-and-vodka-based Girl with the Green Eyes. Brunch, featuring a traditional dim sum cart, riffs on Chinese American favorites, including kung pao chicken wings and waffles, and crispy, smoked-salmon dumplings with everything spice, dill, and horseradish-soy vinegar. Take a sneak peek below.
