Wood-fired pizzas with trendy toppings (wild boar sausage, sunnyside-up eggs), pastas like orecchiette mac n’ cheese and campanelle Bolognese, and entrées such as ahi tuna with bok choy and St. Louis ribs with molasses pork and beans are offered at this spacious eatery run by Joe Bueti (who had owned Pleasantville’s Strega). A spirited bar crowd can be found enjoying numerous craft beers; a short wine list ($30 to $375), and up to a dozen wines-by-the-glass are offered. Street-side dining is available in warmer weather. Lunch Mon through Sat; dinner daily. Reservations accepted only for six or more.

The buzz about Village Social is for real. Just try and get a Saturday night reservation. But no worries: the bar action is where it’s at, and, honestly, where we’re happiest. It’s about time Northern Westchester had a place with a pulsating vibe where the energy is electric. The former Woody’s (and before that, Luna’s) has been reincarnated into an artsy, urbane setting with a striking poured-concrete bar, wood-weathered décor, and just the right illumination (dim but moody), making for a casually jazzed-up ambience. A cabinet of spirits and beverages glimmer against a mirrored back wall where the restaurant’s motto hangs: “I’m not here for a long time, I’m here for a good time.” Indeed, the airy space is designed for chatting (hello, girls’ nights!), while the variety of craft beers and standard bar fare (think tune tartare with pink-peppercorn vinaigrette, fried calamari, and tempting wood-fired pizzas) entice you to stay long into the night.
