Special Dinner in/around Tarrytown, NY

My wife and I will be celebrating our 43rd anniversary in Tarrytown. Can anyone steer me to a restaurant in the area for a suitably romantic evening. Price not a major issue, but ethnic cuisine not preferred. Thanks.

    No doubt someone will recommend Blue Hill at Stone Barns, quite close to Tarrytown. I tend to think it's somewhat over-rated (though very good) and *very* expensive.

    If you're willing to drive across the bridge, I'd recommend Xaviars in Piermont only a couple miles away; Peter Kelly's restaurants *never* disappoint, and the food and atmosphere wonderful.

      go to the iron horse grille in pleasantville. my favorite restaurant in westchester; delicious food, fairly romantic and you can even go see a great film at the jacob burns center after.

        the kittle house in chappaqua is perfect for a special occasion.

            intrepid, were you happy there? I brought my husband there for a special occasion and it appeared that they measured out the wine with a tablespoon.

            I asked for more, and got it. But it's not a place I would revisit.

                One of our favorite intimate restaurants is Plates in Larchmont. A small house / restaurant in the park. Fabulous food. Expensive, so good for a special occasion. web is platesonthepark.com
