What's Your Ohmygodiloveitloveitloveitsomuch Favorite Restaurant?
One thing I have noticed since I joined CH is that any chance I will get, I will recommend The Iron Forge Inn in Bellvale. It's my favorite restaurant in the whole world. I can't ever stop recommending it. I can't stop talking about it. I compare every restaurant I eat at to it. ("It's really good, but it's no Iron Forge Inn.") I won't rest until everyone I know has eaten there and experienced it. I love it that much.
Do you have a restaurant that you're abosolute crazy about? One that you love more dearly than any other place? One that you will shout out from the mountaintop about how wonderful it is? One that you will recommend every chance you get? One that you feel you must tell everyone you know about before you die?
I want to know what restaurants around here inspire this much passionate devotion - or if I'm the only person this crazy about one restaurant.
I will have to try The Iron Forge Inn, Avalondaughter. I've been trying to come up with an OMG place -- and for me, it would have to be consistent and meet all my criteria -- and can't. The closest ones I have come up with are Le Provencal and Sunset Grille.
Posthumously, my picks would have to be Harrald's, Zen Tango and Paul's Hunan Village.
Shame on Westchester.
Not a restaurant excactly but since coming to Westchester 2.5 years ago, the only place I have that kind of passion about is Kneaded Bread in Port Chester. Love it, love it, love it - it has never failed me.
I also feel strongly about individual dishes at some of the authentic Mexican restaurants in PC and NR but each individually has it's strengths and shortcomings - as well detailed by Adamclyde in several threads - so there's no single ONE of those that has my complete devotion.
