The restaurant in Mt.Kisco NY is now closed. No sign posted and no one answers the phone

    That location does not seem to do well. I moved up to Mt. Kisco in 1994 and that space has had several restaurants in it.

        You can go to Don Emilio's in Chappaqua (914)238-2368. Been there a few time the food and service are great.

      I am not surprised...last year I had one of the worst dinners I have ever had with the absolute dumbest service.

        Ate there last night...They closed for 3 days last week according to the waiter. Not a great meal, but decent. Service was a bit lacking, but the tapas we ordered were fresh and hot. Their lunch menu is better than the dinner menu I think.

            I've had drinks there in the past, jsut not this time around b/c I am expecting. I do love their drinks, best part of going there in the summer! They didn't explain why they closed, just that it was for those few days.

          CR's is owned by the owner of the Mexican Place in Mt. Kisco that is next to the train station Parking lot on Moger Ave. His daughter runs CR's on a day to day basis. A few months after it opened it began to attract a big drinking crowd, which took some of the emphasis way from the food, which imho, suffered somewhat as a result.

              No loss. Due to lack of decent parking, and the local economy, it may be tough to dearw a new tenant. As long as they don't bring back the Kit'n Cabodle. Maybe a a decent Chinese Spot? Lord knows we need one in the area, after losing Pacifico.

                Drove by last night on my way to Q and the lot was full and there were balloons outside. It looked pretty packed, like a private party maybe? As for a new type of restaurant in Mt K, the last thing we need is Chinese or Italian....That is all there is! How about some real Middle Eastern, or Korean? Something besides red sauce and fried American/Chinese!

                  I said DECENT Chinese. Not another suburban Chinese clone with a sushi bar attached. By the way, what do you think of Q? As for Middle Eastern or Korean, that sounds interesting. I don't think the area would support either, though. How about an Indian place? The thai place up the street on Lexington is ok.

                    I miss Pacifico...I thought their food was excellent...just couldn't keep a steady busineess. They should have updated the inside and made it more appealing to eat in. I think a decent middle eastern restaurant and a mexican place would be good

            Well unfortunately this place is re-opened. I heard that they got in trouble with the state for overcharging tax and gratuities, not sure if it's really tue. At any rate I was there last night and it was truly one of the worst experiences ever. The service was horrendous. There was at least a 20-30 minute wait for a round of drinks and then it took almost an hour and a half for the main courses to come out. The food was lackluster too. Hopefully they won't be torturing diners for much longer.

              I agree with you wholeheartedly. One of the worst dinners, with the worst service we have had anywhere. I cannot imagine why people continue to spend their hard earned $ there.
