Dinner tomorrow night in Katonah/Cross River/Purdy's area

4 friends having dinner in Katonah area...open to Cross River or Purdys. We need to be at an event in Goldens Bridge by 7:30 - so limited in area.
Was thinking of either Bacio, Blue Dolphin, Tengda, Haiku or open for suggestions. It's a birthday dinner but old friends so casual is okay due to time and area constraint. Also thought of Willy Nick's but heard mixed reviews? Thanks!

  1. What time are you planning on eating? If you go early you can get in and out of 121 in plenty of time. I'm not a fan of Blue Dolphin.

    1. Maybe 545?
      Thanks.....

        It might be close. If you got there by then you could be out by 7 I think. I live in Goldens Bridge and its' about 15 minutes.

      2. The pizza place in Golden's Bridge (little strip shopping center next to the A&P by the exit & train station) has really good food, both pizza and "other" Italian. If your group is really informal, this is a great option and would give you a little more time.

        1. There is also Peppino's by the train station (actually in the old station house). It is decent Italian and a cozier setting for friends to gather. Clientele appear to be slightly more down to earth than Blue Dolphin and from casual observation, enthusiastic eaters.

            I think Peppinos is a better option than the pizza place Portofino.

          2. Le Fontane? It might be nice to sit on the patio.

            1. Where did you end up?

              1. Sorry - had internet issues yesterday and today. We ended up at Haiku and had a good meal. They were patient with ordering as traffic was horrible Friday night and the 4 of us all arrived at times that spanned @ an hour. Food and service were both good. Thanks for all the suggestions!

                  Glad it worked out well.

                    Great. I forgot about restaurants in Cross River. Haiku is one of the better sushi restaurants in the area. I would say it is a notch above Tengda, or other places in Ridgefield or New Canaan. But I still prefer more authentic Japanese-owned places like Fujinoya in Hartsdale, although farther away.

                  2. I agree - thanks again!
