Looking for somewhere to eat before watching the ball drop in White Plains on Thursday night. Something affordable, lively and that can handle a table of eight or so. Not looking for anything fancy, and some people may just come for a drink, so I was thiking of one of the pubs, just not sure which one has the best food.

    Thanks everyone. I noticed on other posts that all of the pubs in that part of town seem to get lumped together, which is why I was asking for the best pub food, just to see if there were any that some of you may have had a good experience with.
    Made reservations at Porterhouse. Will post about it in the new year. I've been meaning to check out Peniche, but that's a little more expensive that what we're looking for, and it didn't seem it work for a group where some people may just stop my for a drink and not want a sit down meal.

      I didn't remember to ask all of my friends what they thought of their meals, but I had the Porterhouse burger and thought it was great. I prefer my burgers well-done and they were able to do that without it getting all dried out, something I appreciate! The chicken teriyaki was annouced as very good by one of my dining companions as well. I will go back soon to try some other menu offerings, especially the shepard's pie and fish and chips.

        If you liked Porterhouse, you'll love James Joyce. The best pub food by far.

        I would go for the Porter House; they have great burgers. The only time I went to the Brazen Fox (I'll admit more than a year ago) the food was terrible. Nice place though.

          Elements is probably your best option in terms of food - a little better and different then your typical bar food. Brazen Fox probably has the best selection in terms of bar food - also pretty good. I always enjoy James Joyce's fare as well. I usually stay away from Black Bear and Lazy Boy for food. Of course, Peniche is the superior choice to all - excellent food at reasonable prices.

            I would do Peniche but it's not a typical pub for that try Porterhouse although it's further awat from ball area I think

                I agree with moron66. The food is basically all friend and not good at all. Those places push drinks not food. If you have to pick one I would say Porterhouse has the best burgers and bar food or Elements next door. A little before midnight you can walk a couple of blacks to main street and see the ball and the music.
