The 12 Hudson Valley Restaurant Week First-Time Participants to Check Out This Fall
The fall edition of Hudson Valley Restaurant Week runs November 4–17.
120 Grand St, Croton-on-Hudson; 914.862.4494
The owners of 105-Ten in Briarcliff Manor, Pleasantville’s Mission Taqueria, and soon-to-open The Urban Hamlet in Bronxville also operate this Croton American spot, serving elevated bar bites, flatbreads, burgers, tacos, and entrées.
2 Old Tomahawk St, Yorktown Heights; 914.248.8100
The second location of this Fairfield County restaurant opened in Yorktown earlier this year. On the HVRW menu: cheese-and-potato pierogi with bacon; slow-cooked brisket; filet of sole in white-wine-lemon sauce; and crème brûlée.
112 N Main St, Port Chester; 914.481.5529
David DiBari’s other restaurants (The Cookery, The Parlor) are longtime HVRW best bets for their excellent menu selections. We’re hoping for the same from his playful, retro-diner-inspired Port Chester spot, where the motto is “Burgers, Shakes, Pancakes and Caviar.”
1 Pierpointe, Yonkers; 914.469.6762
French-born chef-owner Josyane Colwell oversees every aspect of this tiny bistro, where the classic, rural French cuisine is some of the county’s best. On the HVRW menu: wild mushroom soup, pissaladière, poulet Provençal, and baked apples with honey, maple syrup, and cinnamon.

2 Kirby Plz, Mount Kisco; 914.242.0100
The Village Social Restaurant Group opened this Italian joint in the Mount Kisco train station building earlier this year (the original is in New Canaan), serving excellent wood-fired pizzas, pastas, and other Italian favorites.

887 Yonkers Ave, Yonkers; 914.423.3300
Located across from Empire City, this traditional Italian spot offers solid variety on its HVRW menu, including fried calamari; a grilled pork chop with potatoes, onions, and vinegar peppers; an 8-oz filet mignon; and house-made cannoli.
715 Saw Mill River Rd, Yorktown Heights; 914.962.4298
A slate of Austrian and French dishes make up the menu at Christian and Pamela Schienle’s restaurant in space that was previously Jennifer’s German Restaurant. On the HVRW menu: celery root, beet, and endive salad; pork jaegerschnitzel; beef goulash; and warm apple strudel.
211 Mamaroneck Ave, Mamaroneck; 914.899.3130
The former Molly Spillane’s space got a stylish facelift to become this new Italian spot, serving gargantuan portions of refined Italian classics like sweet-tangy caponata, fritto misto, wild mushroom risotto, and a three-cheese chicken parm.
324 Central Ave, White Plains; 914.684.8855
Traditional Italian and Mediterranean flavors mix with white-tablecloth atmosphere (there are plenty of charming alcoves for date night) at this White Plains restaurant, serving homemade pastas and simply prepared mains.
10 N Central Ave, Hartsdale; 914.607.3363
At our top new restaurant, Chef-owner Brian Sernatinger manages to flawlessly execute dishes reflecting an eclectic mix of global cuisines. On the HVRW menu: Spanish octopus croquettes with Meyer lemon aioli; braised beef cheeks with whipped potatoes, Cabernet Sauvignon reduction, and crispy sunchokes; and passion fruit tart.

14 Washington Ave, Pleasantville; 914.769.2980
Part of Pleasantville’s recent restaurant boom is this New American restaurant serving dishes like cauliflower fritters, grass-fed beef sliders, roasted candy cane beet salad, and pan-seared branzino.
237 Market St, Yonkers; 914.375.9273
Yes, it’s a chain, but the lengthy craft beer list and creative bar food like Buffalo cauliflower, poke nachos, and riffs on street tacos make it worth a stop if you’re at Ridge Hill.
