Larchmont/Mamaroneck Low-Key Anniversary Tonight?

My wife and I are recently relocated to Larchmont from Manhattan, and have decided to stay local tonight (for the first time) for a low-key anniversary dinner without kids. Ideally, we'd walk to a place in Larchmont, but we could drive to Mamaroneck as well.

We'd love any recommendations for a low-key place with great food (we tend towards 'foodie"...), but we don't want to break the bank.

  1. Zitoune in Larchmont has a fun environment and good food. The bread is out of this world.

    Le Provencal in Mamaroneck is one of THE places for a special occasion, though. Atmosphere is nice and food is wonderful.

    1. Le Provencal would be perfect.

          True. Meritage and Plates are both very good.

            I second Watercolor Cafe. My wife and I have been fans of this place for a few years. Food is very good, nice atmosphere, and they have live jazz on most nights - tonight is Ted Rosenthol Trio. Reasonable prices too.

              They have a wide type of groups there. GF and I saw Livington Tylor there in what was just about a Kitchen Party. Fully committed house with only a few minor service flubs.

          2. Thanks to all for the posts so far...sounds like a bunch of good choices - and nice validation for us choosing to move to this specific area ; )
