  1. yes its changed hands. the old owners are very close friends of mine. however the new ownners are very experienced, and the old chef tony g. has returned after about a years leave. food/vibe is great. ask for james when you walk in, tell him I sent you. enjoy- its still our local fave by far

      Where is the old owner headed? He was a good guy,
      surprisingly knowledgable about local underground eats
      (spoke knowledgably about latino rice and beans within
      a fifteen mile radius).

      Bad timing for him, too. Chappaqua has TONS of tourist
      biz these days (it's like a gold rush or something)
      thanks to the Bill und Hill show, and I'm sure Strega--
      being the only serious food for miles around--stands to
      catch a lot of extra biz.

      I just hope the secret service doesn't shut down
