End & Brew
Located between New York and the upper Hudson Valley, Westchester is often overshadowed by its neighbors, especially when it comes to dining. But old stereotypes about the county’s restaurant scene — that it’s all white-tablecloth Italian restaurants, pizzerias and delis — began to change years ago as trends spread north of the county. New York’s hottest restaurants and that chefs were finding a new audience that appreciated their creativity.
Fine-dining restaurants helmed by top New York chefs—Dale Talde’s Goosefeather and Jean-George Vongerichten’s The Inn at Pound Ridge to name a few—inhabit restored historic buildings. The menus take advantage of the agricultural wealth of the region. Chefs and restaurateurs embrace their heritage, serving regional Chinese cuisine, farmhouse Mexican cuisine and the fragrant flavors of India.
