In this grand industrial space in Tarrytown brought to us from the owners of Chappaqua's Kittle House, it’s really all about what’s on your plate and where it comes from.
The wait-staff, wearing “naturally raised” tees in large open room at the entrance the the Hudson Harbor residential complex, are serving up products which are not only local but often geographically named: Montauk lobster and calamari, Kniskern Farm beef carpaccio, Hemlock Hill pasture raised chicken, in a menu ranging from a $12 composed salad to $38 New York strip steak.
The menu may be short but the items are fresh, seasonal and precious: shell been salad, foie grass and rabbit terrine, sweet corn and braised leak ravioli, burger with heirloom tomatoes.
There’s a big rectangular island bar to hang out at and a market in the lobby, if you happen to want to drop in for orchard apples and perfect eggplants, Ronnybrook farm-bottled milk and other equally well-curated items from an expanding and ever-changing stock. Manager Merry said she'll even stock your favorite local farm requests. There’s a pizza oven (coming soon) if you want to pop in and get lunch and head to the nearby RiverWalk.
Around the corner is the wine (with some super local liquor) shop – by state law, it has to have its own entrance and slightly different hours. Here they make good use of the small space with bottles floor-to-ceiling in handsomely stacked crates. The wines are chosen for their biodynamicness – a sort of uber-organic approach of some select vineyards these days. If you’re really New York-centric they even have a few state wines to choose from.
The restaurant is open daily with hours: Monday to Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
