How lucky are we—Westchester now has a sister restaurant to Nyack’s 8 N Broadway and will soon have another in Mount Kisco. The sophisticated but relaxed dining room with flickering candle sconces, sunset view, and festive crowd almost makes you forget you’re on a workaday corner in Harrison; very attentive and knowledgeable service marked our visit throughout. The menu changes almost daily and dinner entrées are priced between $17 and $31.
Start the slideshow for five dishes we got during our visit.

Delicate and deftly seasoned, antipasti include beefterrinewith house mustard, pork sausage with garlic, feta with grilled ramp, duckcarpacciowith honeygastriqueand beetmicrogreens, andcapicolawith house-made pickle.
Meat and cheese antipasti are accompanied by a plate of duck fat toast that is the very definition ofumami, with shavings of pyramid-shapedMaldonsea salt,fenneltaralli,and smoky “melted” eggplant.
Beautifully complemented by curls of shaved white radish, sliced watermelon radish, micro celery greens, asparagus, and grilled rampsin Champagne vinaigrette, with a liberal dusting of sumac.

The yucca andtzatzikimay pull in different directions,and the fried abundance is perhaps best shared, but the soft-shell crab is an unbeatable seasonal treat.
