First Date Suggestion in Katonah?

YogaFanatic Mar 6, 2012 08:34 AM

Can anyone suggest a cozy, quiet lunch place in Katonah that's open Sundays?
I hear Blue Dolphin's nice but closed on Sunday.

What else? Even a short drive to a neighboring town (15min) is good for a nice place.

Thank you.

    If you are interested in Asian, I really like Tengda in Katonah. Great lunch menu. Not that loud, especially during lunch. You can walk from the train, it's a few blocks down the main street (past Mrs. Greens, in the shopping center with the post office).

      La Fontaine, very pleasant atmosphere and best italian in the area, hands down, and I've lived here for 40 years. Great place for a date -- guaranteed to impress.

      Owner used to own Blue Dolphin and passed that along to his brother. Blue Dolphin is too small, as reported by others.

        I agree that the food is delicious. I don't think it has any charm . Also not sure of Yoga Fanatics age, but it does tend to be an older crown and empty out very early

          You can try Peppino's - Italian, walking distance from train station. More on the restaurant, and other Katonah happenings, here: http://bedford.patch.com/listings/pep...

              Well, Blue dolphin is anything but cozy - small yes, small and noisy. I can't think of a thing in Katonah for lunch. If you venture up a bit to North Salem you could try 121 - nice energetic vibe. BAccio in Cross River is a sister restaurant to Blue dophin http://www.baciotrattoria.com/ and so is La fontaine http://www.lefontane.net/welcome.htm.
              Baccio is in Cross River - just across rte 35 and La Fontaine is closer on rte 100 and 35.

                Thanks for the tips? Is Baccio also noisy? Is the food good, despite the noisiness/crowdedness? THis is Sunday lunch.

                Thanks again.

                  We just had dinner at 121 in N. Salem last night. We sat near the bar and the fireplace. We really enjoyed it. Such a friendly atmosphere and some lovely food, and a very nice wine. If it wasn't so far away from us, we'd be back often--
