Bronxville vicinity for a Monday night birthday dinner for Mom.

We've been to Rosies and their sister restaurant and Underhill.

Could do the best sushi in town, I think there are three of them, or take a short drive in any direction for just a lovely meal, with good service.

I realize this is a wide open question, but we don't know what the surrounding area has to offer, as we are visitors to Bronxville, and Mom doesn't eat out a lot, but enjoys a foodie, good service, anything goes night on the town.

    Dining out on a Monday will limit your options, but I'm sure you'll get some good suggestions. We like Dumpling + Noodle. It is casual, usually very friendly, and pretty reliable. We tend to order the handmade noodles and the soup dumplings, plus some kind of bubble or jelly tea. I'm particularly fond of the lychee jelly.

      1. If you want something a little different there's Kraft across from the train station.

        There's a place called Wild Ginger (Asian) also in town.
        In Scarsdale there's Haiku.
        In Tuckahoe there's An American Bistro

        Another idea is to go on Tripadvisor and look up restaurats in Bronxville.

        Good luck! There's a lot of good places in the area!

          There's also a Haiku in Bronxville -- typically very crowded & they do a big takeout/delivery business, but the food is good. Don't know about the new sushi place (old Japan Inn spot) other than the hours are fairly limited I heard.

          Personal favorite is Rosie's, and the back room with the fireplace might be a nice birthday venue.

            I'll be honest in that I think that both Haiku and Wild Ginger are too Americanized for me.

            I haven't been to the place that was the Japan Inn, but I spoke with Lenny, the old owner, just before he retired, and most of the staff, chefs, etc. were staying on. I think he said one of the old sushi chefs is the new owner.

        2. If she enjoys good wine, then Ernie's Wine Bar + Eats in Bronxville is great. Limited menu of specials each day, all very good. Their pate's are fantastic.

          For Italian Scalini Osteria in Bronxville is very good. I haven't been in a year or two, but haven't heard anything bad.

          1. The Tap House in Tuckahoe is terrific. Not sushi, but a very nice evening and solid food and wine options. We've always been very happy with our experiences there, and the service from top to bottom is lovely.
