Need recs near Brewster

Hi all.

We're renting a cabin for the summer in Brewster. I'd love recs of anything in the region we should be aware of. That includes restaurants, take out, markets, stores, wine shops, farms etc.

Special extra credit for awesome places we might consider stopping on our way up from NYC.

    I would definitely recommend Rraci's (http://www.rracisrestaurant.com/) in Brewster. Excellent food and service.

        In Katonah, there is great seafood pasta at the Blue Dolphin (housed in the old diner car on Katonah Avenue). If Pakistani take-out interests you (it can be incendiary!), get off the Saw Mill at Thornwood, and work your way back a mile or so to Westchester Grocery (aka Khan's Indian Kitchen). Different choices on the menu every day, but the samosas and the biryani are both really good and regularly available. And perhaps most fortunately for you, your cabin in Brewster is tantalizingly closer to Wingdale and, along Route 22, the sensational Big W's BBQ -- arguably the best BBQ in the entire NY region.

              Would not go out of my way for Blue Dolphin. Ok if you happen to be there but not worh a detour,IMHO. Rraci's has very good Italian. Salinger's Orchard for fresh donuts!!!
