Brewster,New York . advices please

We've eaten at "The Arch" in Brewster which is really excellent and we're looking for another upscale really nice place to go out for dinner when we're down near there in two weeks.
Anyone have any suggestions?
We like the usual steak,chicken,and american fare but food done "differently" and very-well presented.
By "differently" I mean like with great sauces that really bring say,chicken,to life(LOL).
Anyone gone to the Le Chateau inn South Salem?
How is it in your opinion?
Any help you hounders can give me would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Went to Le Chateau many years ago and remember my experience being very positive. While I couldnt speak for it now I haven't heard of it taking a nosedive. I'm not that familiar with Brewster restaurants but if your willing to drive a little there is Restaurant North in Armonk that many people seem to like (hate their website), but it's a straight shot down on 684. Along the lines of Le Chateau I'm thinking Kittle House in Chappaqua.... or in Bedford There is The Bedford Post Inn.... and in Bedford/Banksville there is Enjoy. Good luck.

    1. I would avoid LeChateau. It's a great place for a wedding but not for dinner.

      1. Thanks GIONY and winecountrygal.
        I think we'll head to Armonk like you suggested.

        1. If you are looking for upscale I would totally agree with Crabtree Kittle House in Chappaqua.Not a fan of Le Chateau, I remeber it being stuffy when I was there many years ago....Another idea is a spanish restaurant called La Camelia Restaurant
          It's a nice place set in a little house serving nice cuisine from Spain....if you are looking for something different. Also a favorite of mine, not upscale though, is Village Social. I have yet to have a bad meal there. Good luck! :-)
