Anniversary Dinner [Westchester County]

Looking to go out somewhere "different" for our anniversary dinner.. Tired of the same places in Westchester in general. Would anyone have an idea of someplace that not Italian, Chinese or French?
I am hopeing there's a new place somewhere that perhaps I am not aware of?
Thanks!

  1. What are the places you usually go and want to avoid?

    1. Perhaps iron horse grill in pleasantville.Very nice for a special occasion.A bit more interesting than most places in westchester. Here is the link( I hope).

      1. We love X20, and have had a few anniversary dinners there.

        Pretty place, nice service, GREAT food.

        1. I second the Iron Horse, and I'll throw in North in Armonk, and Mima in Irvington (I know you said no Italian, but it's not meatballs and red sauce Italian). And just over the border, Polpo in Greenwich (oops, again with the Italian) is lovely for a special occasion.

            Thanks for some of the hints! I know many of these place....I also should have mention not too expensive. I go alot to X20 for brunch....Also I meant no Italian but not in a bad way....We enjoy eating food from other countries and there's such a lack of that, imo, in Westchester. Has anyone tried Eithopian in MT Kisco? Not for an anni dinner but I had it once in my life and enjoyed it....Or Shiraz, if its still open?

              Mima looks nice...A great idea....Wine and tapas...And more wine...lol...
              I didn't think of North and Iron Horse grill but it might be a little above budget for this year :-(

                How about Zitoune in Mamaroneck? It's definitely something different, food is great, good service, a bit swanky-romantic decor.

            2. What about MP Taverna (Greek) in Irvington. Might not fit the "not too expensive" bill though

              1. Have you been to Harpers in Dobbs Ferry or Sweetgrass Grille in Tarrytown? Both feature produce from local farms and very good, seasonally driven menus. While neither is very fancy, both have an upscale casual vibe while still being very approachable. Both also feature great cocktail lists and have a great energy. Of the two, I'd go for Harpers for the anniversary celebration as the dining room is a bit bigger and you can feel like you are alone instead of part of a crowd. They also have a beautiful back garden that would be very romantic for dinner, weather permitting. If you have been to The Cookery you will see similarities, but Harpers and Sweetgrass take reservations so it is easier to get in.

                1. North in Armonk!! It's our fave "go-to" place for special dinners (just celebrated my husband's 40th w/ 25 of our nearest and dearest) but it's also our fave place for an intimate "catch-up" dinner, too. Tell them it's your annivesary and I can almost promise they will go above and beyond to make your evening extra special.
