Good Eats in Northeast NJ By NY border?

Recently moved back up to the Westwood/Old Tappan/Piermont/Nyack area after not having been there for many years. I know there are a ton of great restaurants up here, whether they be cheap eats or finer eats. Any suggestions on where to take my tastebuds on an adventure?

      Relish in Sparkill NY
      Wasabi in Nyack
      I second the recommendations for Freelance Cafe and Bailey's

    2. I also recommend Freelance and Relish. You may also want to add Lanterna and Hudson House, both in Nyack. Lanterna is Tuscan and HH is American I guess. The owner, Matt Hudson is wonderful and he makes cery delicious desserts.

      1. In Tappan - Village Grill. American with middle eastern touches. Intimate, smallish, very personable owner. Good food.

        1. LuShane's in Nyack too... They have great watermelon martinis this time of year and their fondue is delicious! Sit at the copper bar......
          Art Cafe also in Nyack is great for lattes and middle eastern food- its next to the library on broadway.
          Second the recs for Relish and Freelance.
          For sicilian slices, Ciceros in Bardonia is great and Posa Posa makes delicious salad pies. Turiellos in Nyack has the best plain pizza- cripsy and flavorful! The Nanuet Restaurant also has great pizza... I believe they make the crust with beer so its distinct. When you walk in, you think you may be eating in a different decade but its good for take out!

            Also at Turiellos is a great arugula slice. It's served cold, tomato sauce, no cheese, topped with fresh arugula, chopped onions and tomatoes.

          2. The Baker's Wife ( you can google Baker's Wife, Tappan)(see Quick Bite), for take out savory dishes, a loaf of bread, pastry, fabulous coffee amazing!!! 33 Old Tapppan Rd 845-359-2228 or 201-784-5688
