  1. For great sushi, try Wasabi in Nyack. You need to have a reservation.

        Thanks for the help, are there any Spanish restaurants (As in Spain) up here? We love our Spanish food.

          Barcelona in Tappan is very good.

    2. I just moved out of Rockland and am homesick everyday. Nyack has tons of great restaurants. My favorite is the Thai House on Park st. Good Mexican is Casa del Sol also in Nyack. Just south of Nyack along the Hudson is the town of Piermont a great place is Xaviars and Freelance Wine bar. There is another Xaviars in Congers on rt. 303. Back down south of Piermont is Sparkhill that has a bodega with a great spanish restaurant in the back. Also in Sparkhill is Relish and Easy Gourmet. Back south in Orangeburg just off of Rt 303 is Il Fresco with a cozy wine cellar open for cocktails (I love this place)
      Enjoy Rockland County it is a special place!!!!

        Mexican place in Sparkill is called La Bamba, and it is yummy. Soft tacos really good... ask for extra onion and cilantro in guacamole if you order it. Soup is a meal on its own.

          Ditto, Freelance, Xavier's, Restaurant X
          Heather's Nyack Lanterna Nyack

        2. Martios old time pizza on Middletown road. Probably some of the best pizza I've ever had. Decent low down Italian subs, pasta, etc. Home made Italian ices too.


          1. You have to go to Rockland Bakery.

            Not much way to describe it. You'll never look at breads and rolls the same way again. Its all better right out of the oven.

              Thank you for reminding me. I think going to the Rockland Bakery when I was 7 was a great chowhounding inspiration for me. We picked up enough bread for a family wedding. If you get the bread really fresh and warm, they can't run it through the slicer for you, a small price to pay.

            2. I used to live in Rockland County. The Thai House on Park street is still my favorite restaurant even though I don't get there as often as I wish. The food is always very fresh and delicious. The restaurant has a counterpart in Westchester, but I am still biased for the Nyack one.
              It is so quaint too.
