Yorktown Heights

  • h

We're going up to a local theatre production this weekend in Yorktown Heights. Any good places to eat - 1 picky eater in the group, so American-esque would work best. Italian might work too. Thanks in advance.

  1. Grandma's (on 202, I think). Great all American menu. Excellent pies/desserts. Overall good eats.

      Excellent desserts, not great food. And not near the theater. Too late now but Miraggio is probably the best bet (you can park in the parking lot near the theater and walk down the steps by the walking track which will take you to the shopping center with the restaurant), although I really hate the people there, they treat you like they're doing you a favor by serving you. Also, watch out for the specials which are announced without prices and typically are priced considerably higher than menu items.

    2. Miraggio Northern Italian Cuisine Restaurant
      Address: 90 Triangle Center
      City: Yorktown Heights
      Phone: 914-248-6200

      Grandma's Country Pie Restaurant
      Address: Route 202
      City: Peekskill
      Phone: 914-739-7770

      1. If you're looking for fancy, Peter Pratts has wonderful food.

        You say you have a picky eater, but I think the sushi at Hanada in Yorktown is quite good if you're up for that.

          I second Peter Pratts if you are looking for a more upscale "Westchester experience".

          I went to Gaudios in Yorktown Heights a few weeks ago and had a decent meal at a decent price. Nice setting, a notch above your average italian restaurant. I also heard that they own the Three Brothers Pizzaria right next door and that if you order pizza on Gaudios menu it comes from next door. Overall it was a nice experience, I will be back soon.

          1. Heights Bistro on Underhill Avenue - have eaten there once, enjoyed it. Strongly positive review in NY Times several months ago. NOT good desserts, so you can save on $/calories. Have a nice espresso instead so you can stay awake for the show. Need reservations.

            Enjoy, wherever you go!

              I know this was 3 years ago, but is that the old Yogi's?

              1. re: wincountrygirl

                Yes, after they moved from Mohegan Lake.

                1. re: wincountrygirl

                  Yogi's Prime Rib ... I still think about it all the time (when they were in Mohegan Lake).

                  1. re: Cheese Boy

                    I know. That was a great prime rib. I loved the bread too. And the price was right!

                    1. re: wincountrygirl

                      It was a great place. Bella Vita is a good Italian restaurant that is in the original Yogis spot.

              2. BTW another choice is the newly opened Murphys on Route 118. I have not eaten there but they always seem to be busy.

                1. I second the Peter Pratt Inn and the Heights Bistro. The NY Times recently gave a good but qualified review to the Piatto Grill:
                  http://events.nytimes.com/2009/02/01/...

                  There's also good sushi (Hanada) and a good Hibachi and Sushi place (can't remember the name!). But I would avoid Grandma's personally.

                    Mirragio is piatto grill now. Mostly the same food, something for everyone- family style portions. Hanada is good, and I agree with everyone avoid grandmas
