Tap house in Tuckahoe

Apparently, this new place is opening up in the old spot of Rockwell's. The new place is owned by the same group that owns Morgan's, Ruby's, Rye Grill and Lexington Square Cafe. It is due to open on Tuesday (12/18). It is described as an upscale gastro-pub.

I can't tell you how psyched I am that Tuckahoe seems to be getting on the map with surprising restaurants. I have high hopes for this one. I have a reservation in the new year. Will report back.

There was an 'open house' today. Did anyone make it?

  1. Sounds interesting. Of course these new places have to open up a few months after I move 400 miles away. I'll have to check it out when I go visit family for the holidays.

    1. On Opentable, the chef is listed as Will Savarese. From google, he used to be the previous chef at La Crémaillère, has worked at Le Cirque and The River Cafe, and was going to be the opening chef at X20. Should be interesting!

        Interesting indeed.

        juweee, where is the location, exactly? Sounds like a place to be noted.

        1. re: dolores

          yeah the restaurant is right across the street from the metro north station.


        This says they are 16 depot square. According to google maps it looks like it's right by the Tuckahoe train station. Sounds promising!

          Thanks, SweetPea. I wonder if the chef will bring with him the 'amazing to die for' snail with pasta appetizer?

          I know, of course he won't, but if he was capable of making a dish like that, this is a 'must try out' place.

            Being a Tuckahoe resident, I know the answer to this one, I will second SweetPea, it is in fact located at 16 Depot Square, very large lettering Tap House, can't miss it.

          2. I'm very exicted about this new "hot spot". I believe Tuckahoe is on the brink of booming--and the opening of the restaurant/lounge is a strong indicator(ok-including all the condos being built on main street). I can't wait to try it out....I looks like a cozy spot!!!

            1. Went on a quick tour of the new TapHouse with owners Jim Sullivan and Jan Fabry last night...they were still in the midst of training their staff in front and back...I was told they would be opening this enter from the side walkway...once inside the redesigned bi-level establishment is dramatic (there is very little from the former Rockwell's apparent)...warm tavern like front room with vintage bar, flashy rear dining room along the gleaming open kitchen with huge fireplace, then an upstairs room overlooking it all...well thought out I though on first impact.
              The opening menu includes such 'gastro-pub' small plates and grand plates as: Mussels with fennel, lemon and Belgian ale; Manchester Farms grilled quail, sweet potato salad and hoison soy dressing; Heritage Pork Porterhouse Chop, sweet potato puree, cabbage and spiced apple jus; and Hudson Valley duck Ruben, on panini or rye with 1000 island dressing, Swiss and braised cabbage. Daily Night Specials include: Braised Short Ribs. Opening prices appear moderate...

                Gut, did you get a look at their beer line-up?

                I live in Tuckahoe, and an avid beer drinker and homebrewer (very much a beer snob) so I am extremely excited about this place. I stuck my head in there two weeks ago and asked someone if they were a micro brew, but was told they are classified as an upscale pub and will serve something like 35 CRAFT BREWS. Wow! I can’t wait to get in there are start sampling!
