Need Recommendation for 8 in/near Briarcliff Manor

Taking my nephew (17), and sister and relatives to a (late) graduation dinner saturday evening.

Any recommendations in or very near Briarcliff Manor that would be accomodating, casual, good food and okay for eight persons?

      1. re: corky

        imho amalfi is an adequate italian place, it is very far from very good

      2. Flames is a good steakhouse, Amalfi and Terra Rustica are decent Italian. Spacarellis in nearby Millwood is a nicer setting and better food for Italian, but pricier.All can accomodate the 8 people. If you go towards Chappaqua, Pleasantville or eve Mt.Kisco there are also many more options

        1. Umami Cafe in Croton fits your bill. While they don't normally take reservations, call 914.271.5555 to let them know you'd be a party of 8.

          Also in Croton is Justin Thyme (914) 271-0022

          Both places are casual with very good food. Better than very good. And while they'll be busy because it's Saturday, you won't be competing with other Briarcliff graduation folks.

          Another option, although it depends on how late you'll be, is Wobble Cafe in Ossining. They serve dinner only a few nights a week (they're mostly a breakfast and lunch place), so it tends to be off people's radar. (914) 762-3459 Food is great, and it's BYOB.

          1. Okinawa Japanese Steakhouse in the Arcadian shopping plaza in Ossining is surprisingly good hibachi - great for a large group.
