Ceviche in Westchester

XTwistedOrchidX May 20, 2007 04:45 PM

Does anyone know of a Westchester restaurant that has good ceviche? It's an absolute favorite of mine, and I'd love to have it at my graduation dinner tomorrow night, I'm just not sure where to go!

    Has anyone had the ceviche at Patrias in port chester? It's a Spanish-Peruvian restaurant (next to Paleteria Fernandez). Nice place, mostly a tapas place, but they advertise ceviche there too. Might be pretty good place to try too...

      I have had the ceviche at Patrias... It was good. Not as good as Pacifico, BUT Patrias is well worth it just for the Sangria alone.

        I had the ceviche mixto last weekend at Patrias and it was perfect. Muy sabrosa. Tell them you like spicy (if you do).

      too late for this request, but... I remember someone talking going to the new location of acuario in port chester, but can't remember if they liked it or not. I noticed yesterday how nice it looked - and out side it said on the awning, "cevicheria." I don't recall the old acuario putting an emphasis on their ceviche... seems the new one might be worth trying to see too.

      Anyone tried Acuario's ceviche since they moved?

        Correction: they didn't move, they opened a second location.

        I've been to the second location a few times. The menu is similar but they said it'll be expanding . The food is the same with a more upscale, festive atmosphere. The workers are the pretty much the same with the exception of a couple new waitresses. They said they go back and forth between the two locations. So it basically comes down to the location and atmosphere.

          interesting. I didn't know they were going to do both locations. Thanks for the info.

          So, on the ceviche front... is it more of a focus at the new one? or are they using the trendiness of ceviche to bring folks in, but the old location has the same stuff on the menu? I only went there a few times, so most certainly could have missed the ceviche options at the old location...

            The original location had ceviche as well. Both have around 5 varieties. It's interesting you noticed the "cevicheria" on the awning. Did each awning say that or was there something other than "Acquario"? One thing that is different is the side bread is now a long loaf that's sliced up instead of a roll.

              i think the awning is navy; aquario is in light blue, and 'cevicheria y mas' is in yellow.

            Are you referring to "Misti a la Brasa"? If so, then I concur - outstanding ceviche, and with that toasted corn - mmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!

              that is what i'm referring to, and you're right about the toasted corn.

            Inthipak in Ossining has ceviche-- I enjoyed it, but it was my first time eating it so I have no frame of reference. Congrats!

              Sunset Grille in White Plains is wonderful.
              I enjoyed the ceviche at Coco Rumba in Mount Kisco.
              Congratulations on your graduation!
