Yonkers/Bronxville area recs for dinner?

  • j

I'll be in Yonkers saturday night, and I was hoping for any recommendations for a restaurant in the area.
Not afraid to venture further, Manhattan is out of the question though.
It'll be 4 for dinner, prefer upscale but not outrageously priced. Something casual...?

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much everyone!

  1. Can you give us more info to help us make suggestions? Where in Yonkers? It is the 4th largest city in NY State. How many minutes drive time? How much do you want to spend? Any favorite or not so favorite cuisines?

      Okay, I've been to Harvest on the Hudson, Blu, Buffet de la Guerre...
      I'm not from the area, so any info on a place like these.
      French, Italian is a plus! I hope this is more helpful.
      Thanks again for any info.

        Fox Bronxville, I liked Pane e Vino but I believe someone said it was closed even though their web site is still up:

        It seems these keep popping up: Underhills Crossing, Haiku Asian Bistro, Scarborough Fair & Kraft Bistro. UC is French/Italian/Mediterranean w/ some nice wines and outdoor seating. SF is quite cozy and everything's a winner on the menu.

        As for Yonkers, I'm a little out of touch besides some of the Central Ave. haunts, like Ricky's for decent seafood, Central Square Cafe for decent Italian/American, Kang Suh for Korean, and Wild Cactus Cafe for Mexican. Not sure if La Lanterna,, is still was Swiss/Italian and had pretty good menu.

        In Eastchester, Jackie's Bistro is a home run for French...

        Also, see the below previous thread.


    2. tip..stay away from zupa

      1. I second Jackie's in Eastchester for french. If you want to try something else, we have enjoyed An American Bistro in Tuckahoe (at the Crestwood train station) many times. Both are close to Yonkers/Bronxville...


        1. You never said what area you will be in so it is hard to make suggestions.

          I really disagree with the following mentions: Ricky's for seafood- mediocre, Central Square Cafe for Italian/American- less than mediocre, and Wild Cactus Cafe for Mexican- blah- fake mex

          Kang Suh- Central Ave north east Yonkers, Korean is good to very good depending upon items ordered- stick to the Korean menu
          Jackies Bistro in Eastchester is very good
          An American Bistro across from the Crestwood train station is very good New American/Continental
          Gina Maries- Family Italian in Eastchester- large portions at good prices of pretty good food,
          Valentinos- Family Italian on Bronx River Road in south east Yonkers is good
          Hunan Village upscale Chinese on Central Ave in north east Yonkers is good to very good
          Cafe Meze Mediterranean on Central Ave in Hartsdale is very good
          Azuma Sushi by the train station in Hartsdale is the best sushi place in the area outside NY City- excellent, expensive

          I have heard both good and bad of all the Bronxville places such as Haiku, Kraft, Underhills, Scarborough Fair. I find them all overpriced and only good to very good but have only been to each once. Which says a lot since I live there. I do plan on checking out Haiku and Kraft more in depth when things get quieter this summer. Underhills is a madhouse, and the people, both staff and customers can be pretentious. Pane Vino in Bronxville was mediocre.

            Suggest you give Mimosa (Main Street in Dobbs Ferry)a try.

            Good seafood & Italian/Continental (no tomato sauce), good wines by the glass & great service


          2. Kraft on Kraft Avenue in Bronxville. Been 3 or 4 times.
