Suggestions for Tarrytown/surrounding area restaurants

Hello..I'm meeting my two best girlfriends to celebrate our 30th birthdays and was hoping to get some recommendations for restaurants in or near tarrytown (as they'll be picking me up at the train station there). We don't get together that often so something on the nicer end/more upscale would be great. We're looking to spend no more than $100/person. I'll take suggestions for all cuisines..small plates to large ones. Thanks!

  1. I just mentioned this to another Chowhounder. There is a great restaurant in Pound Ridge called Northstar. Probably about a half hour from Tarrytown, but worth it.
    There is also Equus at the Castle at Tarrytown. The view is spectacular and you can't get much closer than that!

      Pound Ridge from Tarrytown falls into the "can't get there from here" category as far as I'm concerned. Mapquest says 28 miles, 40 minutes, which sounds right to me.

      Blue Hill at Stone Barns is a very upscale and lovely place (and expensive--definately special occasion type place), not far from Tarrytown (less than 10 minutes I'd think). I think you can get in (just) under your limit of $100. I also like River City Grille in Irvington; it is probably only 5 minutes or so from the train station, right down route 9, and is a more fun, casual place.

    2. Chiboust, right on Main Street in Tarrytown. Teeny weeny and very, very good.

        I will second Chiboust, although getting a reservation is not always easy.

      2. My two favorite restaurants are in Irvington which is minutes away from Tarrytown - in fact you could even take the train to Irvington instead. I would recommend either Flirt for Sushi - very cool, hip place with tasty original sushi. There's a pool table upstairs for hanging out afterward. Or there's ONE right across the way - eclectic, inventive, fresh contemporary food. Beautiful space, handsome bar. Both would be a great place to meet up with friends.

          I agree. I think that One would be a could choice for you. Fun and happening for the burbs. Chiboust is good too, but it is really small. And we go to River City Grille with our kids, don't think that is a very special place...
