Moving to Pelham - delivery, take out - where do you go?
Moving to Pelham in a month and need suggestions for delivery and take-out in the area. Doesn't have to be right in Pelham, but within 15 minutes or so.
I don't know where in Pelham you'll be moving, but, I will make a recommendation for some quick take-out that you can reheat at home. I won't make any restaurant recs because many of them that I have visited have all been inconsistent.
While you're settling in, and hopefully have accessiblity to a microwave, try:
Battaglia Brothers of North Avenue
138 North Ave
New Rochelle, NY 10803
Tel./ Fax: (914) 633-3382
This is a great little Italian deli and butcher shop that has prepared foods for you to reheat at home. Just minutes from Pelham. This place is a great find and will surely help you satisfy your hunger for the first couple of weeks during your move. Their food is well prepared and relatively inexpensive. $5-$6 an entree/order! Buy a *few* orders and pig out - refrigerate the rest. The prepared entrees are over by their meat section (on the right as you walk in).
Welcome to the neighborhood!
There's amazing Mexican food (take-out and delivery) just over the line in New Rochelle. My favorites (with addresses) are in this thread: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/330138
FYI: Main Street in New Rochelle, is the same as Route 1. If you enjoy Mexican food, make a quick foray to pick up take-out menus. Most of the places are walking distance from each other.
Pizza, pizza everywhere! One can overdose on pizza around here. I'm not crazy about take-out pizza, but Modern does a good job. Again, just over the line in New Rochelle, a block off Route 1, 633-9479. Pelham has no dearth of pizza parlors of its own.
Yvonne's in Pelham is a sit-down place for southern inspired food. Fried chicken, greens, black eyed peas, corn bread, etc. Once in a great while I'll go for the Thursday evening buffet. But every six weeks or so, I have to have a take-out order of the pig's feet. They're at 503 Fifth Avenue (Pelham's Main St.). Grab a take-out menu from there.
The food market, De Cicco's (called C-Town by residents of long standing) has a steam table at lunch time that isn't bad, and you can put together a nice salad there too. Good selection of cheese, olives, and a deli. Their beer selection is wonderful.
I second Battaglia Brothers, and throw in the Bread Factory in New Rochelle, for amazingly wonderful bread.
When you get tired of unpacking, take a stroll around town. Our breakfast spot, the Pelham Cafe, was lost to a landslide a few years ago, but it will be re-opening in a new location on Fifth Avenue. There's talk of a new Jamaican place too. Now that's NEWS!
I get the names confused but I at the one on the west side of the street. They had a standard bar food menu. They also had several specials. My co-worker & I had burgers & they were very good. Also the presentation was nice & their ingredients were fresh. I would sum it up by saying that it seems they excelled in what they do- & afterall that's how it should be.
Had some good apps there last night. Two good chicken appetizers and the nachos. Everything was good. Had the Shepherd's pie (well wahtever they call it, it didn't have lamb), and while it was good, it wasn't great. A little too watery, but it had decent flavor. Good mashed on top. Enjoyable experience once again.
