Purdy’s Farmer & the Fish
There’s seating for 24 on the 1775 farmhouse’s authentically remodeled front porch surrounded by colorful flowerbeds. The food, too, takes full advantage of the pastoral setting, sourcing almost all summer produce from the surrounding seven-acre farm.
It’s a terrazzo, not a terrace. And just like the Italian pronunciation, the outdoor-dining space at Amore is prettier than your average patio, with 100+ seats surrounded by a grapevine-strewn pergola, leafy tomato plants, and a rushing stream.
Tucked behind the restaurant, this peaceful patio facing a small, interior garden with flowering trees and a gurgling fountain is practically made for lingering over a glass of wine and some stuffed zucchini blossoms.
If there’s one place on this list that epitomizes Northern Westchester’s pastoral charm — stone walls, rolling hills, gardens, and big trees — it’s this French restaurant with its casual, family-friendly patio.
