Cortlandt Manor Area

A friend of mine will be in Dutchess County tonight and we are meeting for dinner. The halfway point between us seems to be around Cortlandt Manor.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a casual place for us to meet in that general area?

  1. Cortlandt Manor covers a big area. Will your friend be coming south on Rte. 9 or the Taconic?

      I really have no idea but if I had to guess, I'd say Route 9.

        Gleason's in Peekskill is a good choice. Casual, good food, pleasant atmosphere where you can hang out without feeling rushed.

        If you like Indian food, India House in Montrose is a nice option.

        A bit further south, in Croton, I recommend Umami and Memphis Mae's BBQ. The Tavern is also a good option but it can be hard to get into.

        All these places are easily accessible from Route 9.

        Just passed by here yesterday and my husband wondered if I'd heard anything and I hadn't. What's good there?

          I like all of Elisa515's suggestions.

          Table 9 is kind of a glorified diner.
          it's okay, but nothing worth going out of the way for.

      2. Thanks for the suggestions. The plans were cancelled so my husband, son and I ended up going to Sushi Mike's.
