We want to take my mom to a nice but inexpensive birthday dinner in lower or mid westchester cty. Recs?

She likes Half Moon in dobbs ferry because of ambiance, but I'm not thrilled with their food. Also thinking of PF Changs since its central to where we'll all be coming from, but prefer not to do a mall/chain restaurant. Any suggestions? There'll be 10 of us. Thanks.

  1. I love Buon Gusto in Irvington. Great Italian food, good service, reasonable prices - and you can bring your own wine for no charge!

      1. We ended up asking my mom where she wanted to go, and she said she really liked Aberdeen, so we went there. The dim sum appetizers were very good. The peking duck was awesome, and the star of the meal. The other main dishes were fair to good. I could easily have an excellent meal there made of just dim sum and peking duck though. And I don't know if anything was done since I last went there, but the space felt brighter and more "happening" than last time. The waiters were ok too, not overly exceptional but pleasant. A good time was had by all. Thanks for the tips on Peniche and Buen Gusto - went to Peniche a long time ago and forgot about it, and have never been to Bon Gusto, so need to check out!
