Located in the Renaissance Westchester Hotel is this seafood restaurant with intimate banquettes and seating that provides wooded views. Sample dishes include sauteed crawfish and lobster cake with noodle slaw; crispy skin black garlic salmon, and smoked little neck clams. Dinner and breakfast every day; lunch Mon to Sat; brunch Sun. Reservations recommended.
Though seafood restaurant 80 West overlooks a wooded estate and the décor is cozy-chic, the best seat in the house isn’t in the dining room at all—it’s in the banquet kitchen. It is here that, with a minimum of six guests (and up to a max of 18), a table will be set just feet from the cooking stations, and Executive Chef Jean-Claude Lanchais and a pair of sous chefs will prepare and serve a private seven-course feast complete with wine pairings ($90 pp). The dishes, not on the regular dinner menu, vary, but how do porcini-dusted sea scallops in a creamy morel sauce or sautéed lamb loin with white-bean casserole sound?
