G & G Pizza House in New Rochelle, Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, and Churros and Arroz con Leche at New Rochelle’s El Trigal Mexican Bakery

While writing this month’s Westchester Magazine cover story, "Pie-Eyed," found myself thinking about all of my childhood pies. There were a few, I’m afraid, as I was a strangely food-fixated child. Though skinny (and tragically be-braided), I lurked in scores of pizza parlors. The ones that stick most vividly in my memory were the slightly left-of-center joints, like the Pelham pizza place that was attached at its kitchen/bathroom hallway to next door’s gloomy bar. The pizza was cardboard-y (and the cook/owner was German), but if you were a kid dropping by for an after-school slice, you could peek around the corner to watch old men drink whiskey in the afternoon. I’m not sure anyone would have noticed if I’d sat down and joined them.

No lesser eminence than Jean-Georges Vongerichten is taking over a storied county restaurant. It’s fab, but let’s not rest on our ever-spreading laurels. (I mean, not me—I’m juicing!) From where I sit, there are five more areas that Westchester restaurants could be exploring:
