Looking for nice restaurant within walking distant from a Metro North station south of Brewster Station

Hi fellow hounds,
We are looking forward to meeting up with a friend halfway between NYC and upstate and think it would be nice to try a restaurant around Katonah, Pleasentville, etc. area off of the Harlem Metro North lines in the coming weeks and I need your help. Seeing as though we will not have a car, I am wondering if there are any good restaurants, any cuisine, within walking distance from one of the stations. My friend will be travelling the farthest, so I would want the restaurant to be just a few stops (5-6) after the Northeast station. I hope this is not too big of a request, however I know chowhound and I am always surprised at what responses I get, so I thank you in advance. Chow!

  1. Iron Horse Grill in Pleasantville is essentially *at* the train station. It's excellent; I think one of the best restaurants in northern westchester. There are several restaurants in Mt. Kisco within walking distance as well; Temptation Tea House comes to mind.

    1. There's the Blue Dolphin, in Katonah, a short walk from the Metro-North station. Italian food, in the Caprese style, with seafood and seafood influenced pastas (a smashing squid-ink linguine is a coveted special) particularly winning. It is set in an old railcar diner, and there's often a wait for seating, so be prepared for a leisurely stroll around the hamlet as you await your table.

      1. Thanks for the replies everyone, I looked into the suggestions and I am still open for others as well. Just want as many options as possible, more so for future excursions as well.

          there's also the flying pig in mt. kisco (in the train station), and azuma sushi in hartsdale (great sushi literally 1/2 block away).

            Frodo's is a block away from the Pleasantville train station. Highly recommended.
