Not that restaurant-goers needs an excuse to dine out on great food, but if you do, White Plains is the place and Restaurant Week March 18-31 -- is the time. However, it would behoove you to make your reservations well in advance.
Thats right, the seventh annual Hudson Valley Restaurant Week is just around the corner. And this year, its bigger than ever. We were just blown away, says Nancy Gold, a spokeswoman for the event, of the overwhelming interest. Were up to 198 participating restaurants in seven counties.
Participating restaurants in White Plains include Benjamin Steakhouse , founded by Chef Arturo McLeod, an alumnus of the venerable New York City steakhouse, Peter Luger. Chef McLeods menus are centered around steaks of all kinds, and he personally shops in New Yorks meat markets for the finest cuts of prime meat available.
But dont stop going out for dinner after only one meal. Also on the White Plains list are 42, Emmas Ale House, Graziellas Italian Bistro, Hudson Grille, La Bocca Ristorante, Legal Sea Foods, The Melting Pot, Milonga, Nikos Greek Taverna, Sams of Gedney Way and Sofrito.
The list of participating restaurants in nearby towns reads like a dining guide to New York State: Bistro Rollin (Pelham), Le Jardin du Roi (Chappaqua), Rubys Oyster Bar & Bistro (Rye), Tarry Lodge (Port Chester), Trevi Ristorante (West Harrison), Moderne Barn (Armonk), and hundreds more.
