Lunch in Armonk

v

A friend is flying into Westchester airport tomorrow. We are going to meet for lunch and we would like to meet some place near the airport. Since my friend has to head upstate after lunch, another friend suggested some place in Armonk but didn't have any specific recommendations.

I am not that familiar with Armonk. I am not looking for anything fancy, mostly just convenient to 684. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Armonk Burgers and Shakes took over the Burger Factory spot. Close to airport.

    Several restaurants are on Anderson Hill Road in Purchase. Perhaps someone who has been there more recently than I can pipe up.

      Village Social in Mt Kisco on Main Street has a very varied menu and is just a couple miles off 684.

      If you want something closer to the airport there is Cobblestone (a pub/burger place), China White (may be too fancy for what you are looking for) or Mulligans @ Doral Arrowwood (an outdoor spot on the golf course, depending upon the weather this is a nice place for lunch)

        You hae a ton more options in Mount Kisco which is like 15 min north of the airport, assuming your friend is headed in that direction anyway.
        A great spot is The Village Social...Pizza to salads to sandwiches with prices that will not break the bank. There's the usual Diner across the street. Also Panera and Cosi. Hope that helps!

          There are not many places immediately by the airport. But if you are headed to Armonk I would suggest Modern Barn, I have not eaten there yet but its owned by the same owners as City Limits Diner (which I love). For very casual, Glenville Pizza is good, its in the Glenville area of Greeenwich and they sell by the slice.

            Thanks for the suggestions. I wanted to keep it closer to Armonk (rather than Mt. Kisco) since I am coming from Scarsdale and I have limited time. I thought about the place at the Doral, but too hot to eat outside....will report back!

              In Armonk, there are some nice places to have lunch and very close to Main Street and the nearby streets:
              -www.marianigardens.com- has a delicious, casual restaurant in it.
              - The beehive. A really solid restaurant that has the best offerings of a diner and then some, without a diner feel at all.
              -North. A bit more upscale but casual for lunch and very tasty. Farm to table mission.
              -Daps Feltman's- burgers, salads, grilled cheeses and more all in the back of an upscale sneaker store!
              -Armonk Country Kitchen- Salads, wraps, sandwiches. Its not my fave b/c its a bit small/tight but the food is good and the place is always busy.
              -Made in Asia- the name kinda says it all.
              -Armonk Burgers. I've heard its good. Never been.
              Route 22- I don;t care for it, but people do like it. Burgers, sandwiches, etc...
              The above are all 1-3 short traffic lights/intersections from 684.
              Enjoy!

                I was wracking my brains to come up with places in Armonk and cudos to you, Mrs! Beehive is a great idea. I love Armonk County Kitchen too but you're right, seating and space is an issue. I had no idea there was a restaurant at the garden place, I always pass it and think how nice it is (and how expensive it must be!!)

                  I always wondered about the Beehive so I picked it as a place to meet. Friend's plane is already delayed but hopefully we will still get to have lunch.

                  Thanks for suggestions.

                    We love The Beehive!! It's great for brunch, lunch or a casual dinner. They have a very broad menu. The garden place restaurant isn't really anymore expensive than the other places in the area. Very nice menu there, too and it's a pretty place on a day for outside sitting. Clearly not today!

                  Your question piqued my interest, so I googled for restaurants near Westchester Airport. I was really surprised by a) the number of options and that b) I hadn't heard of most of these places (like you, I live in Scarsdale).
                  Not just for airport meetings, but in general, I was wondering if anyone has an opinion on any of these:
                  The Beehive
                  Gavi Restaurant
                  Jamas Cafe
                  Fairways at the Grif

                  Thanks!

                    I've been to Gavi for dinner and its old school Italian. Fairway on the Griff is in Greenwich. I think Beehive is kind of like a diner, but I hear its good. Never heard of Jamas.

                    Due to time limit, we ended up meeting at Tazza Cafe right next to North. As much as I like a good meal and never want to waste my time on a bad meal(!), it actually worked out well. I had a salad, my friend has a wrap sandwich, it was all fine and we got to see each other, which was really the point.

                    I passed the Beehive, though, and might venture back another time. It was only 15 minutes from me which I did not realize.

                      You should have gone to North. They have a $25 3 course lunch and I'm sure they could have gotten you out in a reasonable amount of time. And the food is wonderful (and they're very nice, to boot!).
