Cafe of Love...Finally, great food hits Mount Kisco!!!

Leslie from Ladle of Love opened her first restaurant around the corner. She considers the restaurant "Fine Eating". We decided to go last night for a late dinner. The decor is warm, inviting and beautifully decorated. New American cuisine that exceeded our expectations. First, instead of having bread brought to the table, there is a bread buffet. Wonderful fresh varieties of what seemed to be Balthazar bread was displayed with cheeses, white bean puree and olives to indulge in.

We ordered raclette to begin (which we almost never see on local menus) and the cheese was to die for! I had duck (confit and breast) served with tender braised cabbage and silky smooth parsnip puree. It was a wonderful entree. My husband has a NY sirloin with a trio of dipping sauces (chimichurri, horseradish, and I forget the 3rd). The steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned. A huge hit. Oh, and before the entrees, the chef presented us with a taste of black truffle salsify soup topped with a bit of fois gras. Oh my G.seriously!

The service was attentive and happy to take special requests. Considering Cafe of Love has been open for 1 WEEK, we were ridiculously impressed and can't wait to return! Go before the word gets out and booking a month in advance.

  1. Sounds wonderful chocolate chick. What's the price point for "fine eating"?

      There is a huge range of prices for entrees. Several entrees (salads, pasta, roast chicken...) were b/w $18-$23 (about) and the highest was $39 for a duo of beef (short rib and filet) which although pricy, will be the next item I will try. I think it can fit most dining budgets.

        Sounds fair and not out of line for Westchester especially considering how good you say the food is --- plus the bread, cheese, white bean spread buffet thing.

    2. Wow, sounds great! Thanks for reporting Chocolate chick.

          They are dinner only for the 1st month and when they are a little settled, they will offer lunch.

        2. Chocolate chic, what a fabulous review. So detailed. Can't wait to try it! :)

          1. Just an update, they are now open for lunch.

            Walked by today at 1:45 and the joint was bustling!
