A Good Mexican Restaurant in Westchester
- George Miller
Anybody got any ideas?
I'm taking my daughter
to dinner, and now that
Don Emilio is no longer in
Larchmont, I don't know
where to go.
Didn't know Don Emilio's, so this may be a little
downscale, but southern Westchester is becoming rife
with many good Mexican joints -- and by that I mean
homey corner places for the county's growing Mexican
population. Two of my favorites are the Mexican Corner
Restaurant on Main Street in New Rochelle (across the
street from REI) and Tio Pepe near the Port Chester
train station. Both have been around for several years,
and MCR serves a breakfast on the weekends. There are
also numerous Mexican places popping up in White
Plains, particularly along East Post Road. A sign of
the new wave is the combo Mexican/American menu put in
at the venerable Oasis Diner by its new Mexican owners.
Great tamales lunch special. Also, I can't mention the
E.Post Rd. in White Plains without plugging the Latin
American Cafe, a terrific Cuban restaurant (except for
the sandwich -- don't bother). Lovely ox tails, chicken
and roast pork.
