American Restaurant
$$$
“If you’re a fan of Manhattan’s ABC restaurants (who isn’t?), you’ll love chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s quaint Westchester spot, housed in a painstakingly restored 1833 building. The constantly changing menu is farm-to-table, and many ingredients are sourced from the Hudson Valley. Expect things like peekytoe crab crostini with garlic aioli and Neapolitan-style pizza topped with black truffle and fontina. ”
