Tarrytown Eats

My kids and I will be staying the weekend in Tarrrytown. I would love a few suggestions for lunch and dinner. Not outrageously expensive or too fancy. Seafood would be great. We will be staying at the Marriot.

    one of our favorite Cuban places in all the city and tri state is in Tarrytown. It's a clean well run, comfy place call Mi Bohio. I am not sure of the exact location. They have some of the best herby roasted chicken.

      My wife and I tried Mi Bohio this evening. Maybe we chose the wrong items, but we weren't thrilled with it.

      I had a beef empanada for an appetizer which was quite nice (They go by another name on the menu, which escapes me at the moment). However for the entree, I had the shrimp in garlic sauce and my wife had the "El Caribe", which is the chicken in a garlic, cilantro, and olive oil sauce and then grilled. Both sauces were very sour - it tasted like it was from lemon.

      I doubt we'll give it another try.

      I second Mi Bohio. It is on Main St., directly opposite the Tarrytown Music Hall. Try the batidos (fruit milk shakes) and spicy goat stew!

        Also on Main, Chiboost. Great little french-ish
        place with super pastries. Best for lunch
        as it gets crowded for dinner.

            River City Grille in Irvington is really good:
