Just wanted to post that I had a very enjoyable experience at Filia's in Brewster last night. This recently revamped restaurant is located just north of I-84 off of Rt. 22. The dining room overlooks a reservoir and couldn't be more scenic. In addition to the indoor dining space with a view, there is outdoor seating and lovely grounds for what appeared to be available for larger parties/weddings.

Tuna tartare was a little too heavy on the mayo, but the crabcakes were delicious. My husband had paella which was good (tad dry) and I had a delicious piece of cod over white beans and an arugula ragout. Tiramisu was standard. Drinks/wine were excellent.

Although expensive, $10 for a martini -total tab was $150 for 2- we both agreed best meal we have had in that vicinity for some time and the location and view alone were worth it. Check it out- they also host live jazz on Fri/Sat. nights.
