    I CAN'T DECIDE BETWEEN ZUPPA AND XO.

    CAN WE HAVE THEM SQUARE OFF HERE?

      X20 you mean? Not even close. X20 by a landslide. Even Cookery over Zuppa.

        Zuppa was very good, 75 percent cacao, but X20 (except at sunset near the door) wins.

        I'm not sure what you are looking for. There is a fairly new restaurant in Hastings called The Rainwater Grill that I highly recommend if you are looking for affordable, fresh food. If you go, I would suggest the mussels and the hangar steak. They also have a really decent bar menu.

          I always go to Carvela's in Tarrytown. This ia a Brazilian Portugese restaurant that my husband and I have frequented since 2003. The owners are Portugese and their son makes fabulous desserts (also works at the restaurant). The restaurant is very old world, european and the food is great!

              I'm a big fan of La Sala in Larchmont. Great Italian food and their downstairs room is great for parties http://www.ristorantelasala.com/About...

              It would really help if you said WHERE in Westchester. I could tell you about some places in Yorktown Heights but I doubt you'd want to drive here from Yonkers to eat at them. Price range would also be good.

                  Dazzle, I don't know if Meritage in Scarsdale is new to you. It's new to me, and the reviews here have been very nice.

                  Spadaro is new and has excellent Italian food, although reservations are still a bear, according to posts here.

                  Fujinoya in Hartsdale has excellent sushi and tempura.

                  Otherwise, it's the SO/SO in Westchester.

                    Dazzle, a family-friendly Italian place, very casual but with awesome food is Frank's on Putnam Ave. in Port Chester. Huge menu, always delicious.

                    For Japanese, I haven't tried this yet, but I plan to: The Ritz Carlton in WP has an all-you-can-eat sushi night (and Jazz) on Thursdays in the lounge. It's $35, they bring in a special chef and he prepares to-order.

                    Also, for something different, consider the crepe place in Harrison, Rue de Crepe on Halstead Ave.

                        I had Crepes from Rue de Crepe at the United Way fundraiser last week, and they were excellent! Both the savory and the dessert crepes! Definitely worth a trip.

                        We went to Meritage last week and the food was quite delicious and reasonabe. Nothing out of the ordinary or innovative, per se, but very good.

                          I agree about Meritage having delicious food. While their menu items are not totally innovative, we were impressed with how everything served was perfectly prepared. That place is a keeper.

                          Sushi Nanase in White Plains for the best sushi in Westchester. The problem with Nanase, though, is that they only do sushi so it wouldn't work if there is someone in your party that doesn't like sushi.

                          I agree Fujinoya is a great all around authentic Japanese place, and family friendly. If you're closer to Dobbs Ferry, I also like Sushi Niji, small space but casual and friendly as well. Seasons is maybe not as good as these for sushi but still reasonable and reliable as well. I'm a little more cagey about all the pan-Asian places around Westchester, but Asian Temptation is reasonably fresh and has fun rolls, although overpriced.

                            Is Fujinoya still good? Sakanaya Sushi on Central Ave. & E. Hartsdale Ave. is great for takeout and has a few tables. They use grade A restaurant quality fish.

                            I never liked the quality of sushi at Seasons. You know they use the worst when the Tuna, Salmon and Yellowtail taste the same.

                            At Azuma it tastes like it came out of the ocean that morning. No kids, cute waitress, disco, or crazy rolls though.

                        If you like sushi, I have got to recommend Seasons in White Plains on Mamaroneck Ave. It's a little pricey, but the special rolls are to die for. One of my favorite sushi places.

                        There's plenty others, what cuisine are you thinking?

                          Has anyone tried the two relatively new places in New Rochelle on North Avenue? One is Mexican and the other has the word "grill" in the name.

                          Also, I second the recommendation for Seasons. It's not Sushi Nanese but it's good respectible place with something for everyone. Can anyone report on their brunch menu?

                            Seasons???YUCK!!! AZUMA Hartsdale, the ONLY true sushi for 20 miles!
                            Sushi Nanasi - Forget it! It's amazing BUT, you need to book it like a vacation!

                                I agree. Azuma is authentic Tokyo sushi. The best and freshest fish. Serious, costly, quiet and leave the kids home. No crazy rolls.

                                Season's is beneath consideration. I suspect their favorable reviews are self generated.
