This restaurant got a "good" rating in the NYT today. Has anyone ever been? I don't remember ever hearing of this place. Thanks--

    I taught at WCC for over 20 years before retiring in 2001. It is just down the road from the college. Log Cabin has been around since 70's. Had decent food and bar. It was nothing fancy, just your basic homestyle cooking.

    I am guessing that it hasn't changed much.

      Ohhh, but it has DebitNM. It was just given a glowing review by a paper I don't agree with, and appears to be 'fancy' now.

      Such a shame.

        Dolores, a "good" in the Times Westchester section is hardly a "glowing" review. It's more like "OK," or "hit or miss." And the review stressed that the place was not at all fancy. Did you happen to read the review?

          I'm really curious to hear from someone who has been there lately .

            Shawn, it wasn't the Times, it was the free rag I get. I'd have to dig it out, but it showed some fancy dishes. Not the old cabin at all.

              Am heading back to the old hood - first time in 3 years!

              I am wanting to visit all my old haunts.

              Oh well, will have to skip the Cabin and head to Portofino's/Dominics in Goldens Bridge for the BEST pizza and Italian food in the area, if not world.

              FWIW review was in NY Times

                DebitNM, if Kisco Kosher was Mt Kisco Kosher, they're in White Plains now.

                The Blazer is still good. How about Michael's, I think they're still in Somers?

                  I'll be in WP, too. Where is Kisco Kosher, Dolores?
                  Thanks.

              I'd agree that a "good" in the NY Times suburban section is an "eh..." in most other papers. I was baffled by the good rating, giving the text of the review. Like someone wrote the text, and someone else gives the rating...

              Sounds like a don't rush there to try it out if you can go elsewhere...

          Strange that I found this thread a few days before I needed the Cabin. My sister passed away last week and my family was looking for a restaurant near the cemetery. I suggested the Cabin and called Liza who handles groups. Had lunch there and the food was very tasty(sliced steak/garlic mash/string beans) and a good value. The price given for 25 was very reasonable and the food and service was very good. I'm looking forward to trying more dishes there.
