Has anyone tried Sammy's Uptown in Bronxville?

It's new. I also heard it is owned by the same people who run Rosie's Bistro on the other side of the train tracks. Please post if you have been...

  1. I think we drove by this place the other day. Be interested in hearing how good it is....

    1. lollypop, stopped in soon after they opened for a cocktail and this case just an order of the pate on the appetizer menu. It was good, the wine selection was fine...the Bronxville crowd is already gathering...the menu was comforting to read...will report back.

      1. Ate at Sammy's Downtown on Sunday with some friends. They've done a nice job of fixing the place up; I think they moved the bar and the entrance to leave no doubt that it's a whole new restaurant. Had the pate (good), the pork tenderloin (not bad but nothing special), and the triple chocolate cake (also nothing special but perfectly acceptable). Others had the scallops (good), risotto (not sure), veal Samantha (very good), the veal stew (good), and the lemon cake, which got oohs and ahhs. The service was kinda amateurish; hope they grow out of that.

        It's definitely popular with the locals. Saturday was booked up, Sunday was plenty busy if not packed tight, and I happened to walk by tonight (Tuesday) at about 8PM and it looked pretty much full.

        The 4 of us only had a single bottle of Beaujolais to drink, and we split 2 desserts, so your mileage may vary considerably, but we got out of there for about $45 apiece including wine, tax and tip.

          I'm confused.....I drove by this past Monday to go to Sammy's and a sign on the door said open for lunch "ONLY" Tuesday thru Thursday, so how was the restaurant full at night? I assume the limited hours were part of a "soft opening"

        2. I just ate there tonight, and it's definitely fully open. We had 1) the octopus appetizer - super-tender, well-seasoned, excellent 2) a striped bass entree special with a dijon cream sauce and vegetable risotto - also excellent and 3) the bouillibaise - which was OK - not bad, just somewhat underseasoned, seafood slightly overcooked (I prefer most shellfish just above raw). Overall, service was very good, and we'd definitely go back. I think it will do well.

          1. Where exactly are they located?
