Seeking excellent latin (not mexican) restaurant in Westchester

  • s

I"m looking for a good latin restaurant in westchester that is not a hole-in-the wall, and can easily fit 12-20 people for dinner.. I'm the organizer of a new dining out club through meetup that focuses on ethnic food in westchester county and beyond, and am having a difficult time selecting some sort of Dominican, Ecudorian, Columbian or other Central and South American or even caribbean restaurants in Westchester. I know there's a huge latin population in both Yonkers and Port Chester.. where can I find some great latin food thats not overpriced or americanized??? I know where to go in Queens.. but what about Westchester??? help!

thanks for all replies!

  1. Karamba on Main Street in White Plains.
    Latin American Cafe on East Post Road.
    Tango Grill on East Post Road (very pricey)

    1. Scroll down to around Jan 15 for my post on Patria in Port Chester.

      1. In Port Chester:

        Pantanal (Brazilian)
        Inca y Gaucho (Argentine and Peruvian)
        Misti (Peruvian)
        Chavin (Peruvian)

        In White Plains: Latin American Cafe (Cuban)

        All of these have been discussed at length in earlier posts.

        1. Hi Sweptaway-- is your dining club still going on? Sounds interesting!

          I've been to the Latin American Cafe-- it's very good!

          1. I think you were asking about WP and PC but if you felt like trekking up north a little, there is a Peruvian place called Intiphak on Rte 133 in Ossining. They keep advertising in the Clipper Magazine. I haven't been yet but will report back with a review when I do...
