For most kids, you can bribe them with candy or a toy. But not me! As far back as I can remember, you could always bribe me with going out to eat! That is still true to this very day.

I love the energy of a good restaurant and tasting the creations of a talented chef. To me, it doesn’t matter if the place is a dive bar or jackets required. To me, all that matters is that it is good food and I’m sharing it with good people. That’s the essence of Feast & Merriment.

Otherwise known as the suburbs of New York City, The Westchester / Greenwich area has a lot to offer including incredible views of the Long Island Sound and quaint downtown villages. More than views, it also has some really incredible food. I’m on the hunt for the Best Brunch in Westchester.

 

Here are my thoughts on a few places...

Recommended for the Italian classics in a cozy atmosphere, date night, and all around delicious Italian comfort food.
Recommended for bistro style American eats, live music, customer service and specialty cocktails.
Recommended for Tapas, Brunch, Bloody Marys, Seasonal Menu, Wine List & Sherry selection.
David Dibari's The Cookery Restaurant in Dobbs Ferry, NY is rustic, flavorful and pushes the envelope just enough to make it a truly unique culinary experience. It's a favorite of mine.
Recommended for fine dining, brick oven pizza, customer service, and people watching!
La Panetiere has the ability to transport you to the French countryside without having to leave Westchester. Here you can enjoy a quiet, slow meal where no detail goes unturned, and quality is never compromised.
RECIPE FEATURE

 I had the idea to stuff turkey scallopini (fancy name for cutlets pounded very thin) with a buttery stuffing, cranberry sauce and a bit of parmesan cheese, roll, tie, cook and smother with gravy.
