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.
re: Cheese Boy
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.
Miraggio Northern Italian Cuisine Restaurant
Address: 90 Triangle Center
City: Yorktown Heights
Grandma's Country Pie Restaurant
Address: Route 202
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.
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!
BTW another choice is the newly opened Murphys on Route 118. I have not eaten there but they always seem to be busy.
I second the Peter Pratt Inn and the Heights Bistro. The NY Times recently gave a good but qualified review to the Piatto Grill:
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.
