The Portfolio: Harvest offers just what you’d expect from a soaring, Tuscan-style building located on the edge of the Hudson: views of the river, the Palisades, and the Tappan Zee and George Washington Bridges, along with comfortable seating, gentle lighting, crisp service, and a list of seasonal Italian food. If you have a lot of people to accommodate, the main dining room, with its Tuscany-like décor, is ideal and holds up to 220. Otherwise, for something more intimate, there’s a private dining room for parties of up to 32 and a semi-private room for up to 50 people. Both upstairs rooms are the little black dresses of the Westchester private-party scene, thanks to their chic interiors, reminiscent of elegant sitting rooms. Said another way: They look good without showing off.
Bonus: Besides the spectacular views of the Hudson, gorgeous holiday decorations make this a popular choice for corporate events.
