With so many great restaurants in Tarrytown New York, and Sleepy Hollow, New York, you might find it hard to choose! That's why we've whipped up this comprehensive dining and nightlife guide...
Sidewalk dining at Sweet Grass Grill near the Tarrytown Music Hall
Let's take a closer look...
For seafood, steaks, and yes, sunsets on the Hudson - go to Sunset Cove. It is now the one place that can boast true waterfront dining. Hurricane Sandy, sadly, wiped out it's neighbor Striped Bass in 2012.
On Main street, Mediterranean restaurant Bistro 12, and the Moroccan inspired cafe, Mint compliment each other nicely...
Heaping portions of delicious Greek food can be found at both Lefteris Gyro in Tarrytown New York and Santorini's in Sleepy Hollow...
Farm fresh, local ingredients are featured at American style restaurants, like Tarry Tavern, Sweet Grass Grill, and RiverMarket...
And Horsefeathers, Little B's, Bridge View Tavern, The Tapp, JP Doyles, and The Oath all have great pub grub.
More delicious international cuisine abounds at the "bring your own bottle" Indian restaurant, Swagat; Finalmente's Italian Bistro; Tyrynda Thai (on Cortlandt St. in Sleepy Hollow), Sushi Thai (on Broadway in Tarrtown), and Wasabi.
In Sleepy Hollow, you're best bet is the Bridge View Tavern, which offers an assortment of craft beer on tap; and JP Doyles, an Irish pub which opens a beer garden in the summer.
In Tarrytown New York, I suggest grabbing a drink at either The Oath, The Tapp or Little B's. Set Back Inn is usually open late-night and popular with the football crowd on Sundays.
There's plenty of kid-friendly places, too.
Main Street Sweets, Lighthouse Ice Cream & Coffee, Yogurt Le Crepe, make perfect spots to grab a cone, cup, or whatever sweet snack you could want.
And, there is always the tasty hot dog shack in town: Lubins-n-Links.
Okay, with that said, there are still more restaurants and eateries in Tarrytown New York & Sleepy Hollow New York. Everything from classic diners, to authentic family run bakeries. Continue reading to find out more!

Blue Hill at Stone Barns
Blue Hill at Stone Barns is a legit, farm-to-table restaurant located in the pastoral hamlet of Pocantico Hills, near Tarrytown New York.
When you eat at a place like this, you're not only going to leave amazed with your dining experience...
But you'll also be pleased to have pitched in, helping to preserve an agricultural lifestyle here in the Hudson Valley.
As owner, David Barber puts it:
"Food from the Hudson Valley will not always be available unless we support the farmers who farm the hudson valley. Restaurants can play a wonderful role in helping farmers survive and helping their children stay in the farming business and keep that land active."
The Farmer's Feast...
At Blue Hill Stone Barns there are no conventional menus, the meal you get is based on the current season's harvest. Many people choose the Farmer's Feast ($148 pp) - which comes in 8 to 12 courses!
The Feast starts with small light dishes like their Pea Soup with Bacon; Veal Bone Marrow with toasted croutons; Garden Gaszpacho with Strawberries; and Beet Sliders...
And then becomes more substantial with savory dishes like their Horseshoe Lobster in a Vegetable Vinaigrette; Stone Barns Berkshire Pork Loin; and the Egg Carbonara with Zuchini Noodles and Bacon.
For dessert, the feast tapers off into a delightful round of dishes such as the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Sponge Cake; Strawberries and Cream; Honey Marshmallows, Milk Jam Lollipops, and Sesame Seed Fudge.
You'll be awed as these masterfully crafted dishes come out of the kitchen, one after the other. But, be prepared! Dinner here typically lasts up to 4 hours (which is why Blue Hill recommends not bringing young children.)
More than just a meal...
Head chef and co-owner Dan Barber (David's brother) admits that the farmers are just as big a part of this operation as he is. He urges you to come early, before eating, to tour the farm.
The property is accessible via carriage trails. You'll be able to meet the farmers, get up close to the animals, shop at the Farmers Market, and perhaps even take a culinary class.
Hours: Wednesday through Saturday: 5pm-10pm; Sunday: 1pm-10pm.

Sunset Cove is the perfectly named restaurant right on the Hudson River, near the Tapan Zee Bridge in Tarrytown New York.
Come in summer, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, when Sunset Cove opens up it's outdoor deck.
There's a tiki bar and kitchen that serves up delicious casual fare, like swordfish steak sandwiches, pulled pork, clams, ect.
The sounds of a Caribbean Steel Drum Band and the touch of a cool breeze off the water give the outdoor deck a fun, tropical atmosphere.
But there's more than just summer-fun. Inside, Sunset Cove is a snazzy restaurant, open all year, with white cloth dining, valet parking 'n all.
We usually go for the outdoor experience, but we've also eaten inside and ordered off their regular menu. We got the Wild Mushroom Ravioli in a butter sage sauce and the Jumbo Sea Scallops with a butternut squash risotto and grated pecorino cheese. It was delish!
Hours: Wednesday through Sunday: 11:30am-10pm. Closed Mondays & Tuesdays.

RiverMarket Bar & Kitchen
RiverMarket Bar and Kitchen opened in October 2013 making it one of the more recent additions to Tarrytown's restaurant scene.
Its location at the new Hudson Harbor development is just steps away from both the train station and the Hudson River.
As the name implies, there is a small market at the entrance, where you can shop for wines, cheeses, and other artisanal craft foods, like jams and honey.
RiverMarket's attractive interior features orange leather seats and gray slate surfaces. Soft light filters through wooden slats in the ceiling, and the floor is made of 200 year old maple planks re-purposed from a factory upstate.
Start off with the Steamed Maine Mussels ($16); Grilled Montauk Calamari ($16); or the Hudson Valley Foie Gras and Rabbit Terrine. ($22)
For a main course you won't go wrong ordering one of their handmade pasta dishes, like their Pumpkin and Porcini Ravioli ($12-22); the New York Strip Steak ($38); or the Grilled Rainbow Trout ($30).
I like their signature RiverMarket Burger. ($16) It comes with a peppery strip of bacon, super skinny, crunchy frites, and bleu cheese.
Their huge wrap-around black walnut bar offers a selection of fine wines, air-sealed and on tap; a sophisticated bottled-beer list and a huge copper beer tower featuring many NY microbrews on tap.
Recently, we had an expensive, splurgy night here - ordering something from each section of their menu and more than a few cocktails. (Hey, you gotta try a new place, right?) It was awesome, and totally worth it.
Hours: Mon. - Thurs: 12pm-9pm; Fri. & Sat: 12pm-10pm; Sundays: 12pm-8pm.
Address & Phone: 127 West Main Street, Tarrytown New York / (914) 631-3100
Sweet Grass Grill
Sweet Grass Grill is a down-to-earth restaurant that serves local and seasonal food using produce from over a dozen Hudson Valley farms.
We like to eat here before seeing a concert at the Tarrytown Music Hall.
Usually we try to sit at the one of the window tables, so we can watch the crowd line up under the marquee; or, in warmer months, at one of their sidewalk-cafe tables.
The menu depends on what's coming in from the land and changes slightly week to week - so there's no end of inspiration for chef David Kanter, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America.
Start your meal off with their Caramalized Carrot Soup ($6); Grilled Flatbread with Dips - which is their incredible hummus ($8); or their Sweet Grass Ceaser Salad ($9).
For a main course I highly recommend one of their house specialties - the Honey Glazed Half Chicken ($18). Also, consider ordering the Wild Mushroom & Truffle Cavatelli Pasta ($16), or the Grilled Skirt Steak ($23).
At the bar, which was carved from a single fallen oak tree at the nearby Rockefeller Preserve, you have any selection of fine wines, spirits, and micro brews.
Hours: Open 7 days a week for lunch (11:30am-4pm) and dinner (5pm-9/10pm). Saturday and Sunday Brunch: 10am-3:30pm.
Address & Phone: 24 Main St, Tarrytown New York / (914) 631-0000
Tarry Tavern is an elegant American restaurant, located just a block down from the Music Hall, is a notch up from your standard 'tavern fare.'
Owner, Henry Cabral and head chef, Adam Strong, like many smart restaurantuers these days, focus on using fresh ingredients from local farms.
Tarrytavern's menu consists of two parts: Tavern and Market. The 'market' menu changes with the seasons while the tavern menu features house staples like their Wagyu Burger ($14), which is smothered in a bacon-onion jam, topped with white cheddar cheese.
Their list of hearty appetizers includes items like Butternut Squash Soup, Braised Pork Cheeks, Steamed Mussels, or Roasted Beets ($7-10).
For your main course, try their Sea Scallops, Duck Breast, Braised Short Rib, or Hand-made Fettucini. These generously portioned dishes range between $14-25.

Bistro Z is an upscale, modern American bistro located at the Double Tree Hilton hotel near the Tappan Zee Bridge in Tarrytown New York.
The entrance to the Hilton has almost a mountain lodge feel.
Cantilevered ceiling beams soar above your head and the plush leather couches tempt you to sink in and read next to the fireplace.
Down a wing to your left you'll find an open seating area and bar. Viola! You're in the restaurant, Bistro Z.
The bistro serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It's convenient location and upscale atmosphere is a great place to meet for pleasure or business.

Once you walk downstairs into Cellar 49 at the Tarrytown House Estate - you feel like you've stumbled onto some secret parlor.

It's pricier and fancier than your average tavern. And, as the name implies, they focus on serving unique and rare wines.
The bar area has rugged granite columns, plush leather couches, billiards table, a rich mahogany bar, and makes for a very inviting place to grab a drink.
The main dining area and an additional private dining room, (pictured above) are located through the brick archway.

Savor authentic Greek food and the Mediterranean at Lefteris Gyro - a favorite Tarrytown New York restaurant frequently seen on the "Best of Westchester" list every year.
Sit outside, enjoy a warm and breezy day and order a greek salad (our fave) with large crumbling chunks of feta cheese, olives, grape leaves, plenty of onions (if you want), cucumbers, and of course... the dressing!
Their salad dressing is a to-die-for, delicious house recipe. They sell jars of it at the counter and make great gifts.
The Aegean Platter comes with a little bit of everything... Moussaka (eggplant casserole), Pastitsio (baked macroni w/ meat), Spinach Pie, and Gyro. Your choice of Fries or Rice with vegetables.
Falafels, souvlaki, whatever you order, it's gonna be good.
The staff treats you like family, and you'll keep on smiling when you pay the bill: change in your pockets, and left-overs for the fridge!
Lefteris Gyro is a popular spot, and is highly visible with it's prime location on the corner of Broadway and Main Street. There's no better place to soak up that downtown Tarrytown vibe.
Hours: Open daily for lunch and dinner, 11:00 am - 10:00 pm.
Address & Phone: 1 N Broadway, Tarrytown New York / (914) 524-9687
Santorini Greek Restaurant
As far as good Greek Restaurants go... Tarrytown New York has Lefteris and Sleepy Hollow has Santorini... And they're both excellent.
The snug restaurant on Valley Street is family owned and has been a staple in the area for years.
Their promise to you is authentic Grecian food prepared by Greek chefs using the best ingredients.
As you wait for your entree, munch on the complimentary pita bread with hummus. Or warm up to your meal with a bowl of yummy lemon chicken soup.
Expect delicious and hearty portions at very reasonable prices. All the Greek favorites like the Gyro and Souvlaki Platters; Moussaka; and Pastitsio go for $12-14.
Most of these dishes are big enough for two, so you'd better save room for dessert! Try the Santorini Platter. It comes with a Gyro, Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatzitki sauce and Shish Kebab.
Also, you can't go wrong ordering the Falafels, or something from their seafood menu. If it's in market, go for the Broiled Bronzini.
For dessert, nothing beats a little Baklava - its sweet and gooey with honey and nuts inside with a perfectly flakey crust. Hmm, so good!
Santorini would make the perfect spot before visiting Philipseburg Manor and the attractions of Sleepy Hollow.
Hours: 7 days a week, 11am - 10:30pm. Free delivery with orders of $15 and over.
Address & Phone: 175 Valley Street, Sleepy Hollow New York / (914) 631-4300
Bistro 12, named for their Main Street address, serves up Portuguese inspired Mediterranean, right across from the glowing marquee of the Tarrytown Music Hall.
At your neat white clothed table, you'll delight in the pastel scenes of southern Europe hanging from the walls.
Jump right into the menu with the Grilled Octopus ($13) and the Eggplant Rollatini ($10) for appetizers.
For your main course try the Penne ala Vodka. It comes with chunks of ham and with peas in that irresistible light pink sauce ($18).
You may also like their pan seared Filet of Branzino with sauteed escarole, cherry tomatoes, and lima beans. If you're hungry for meat, the grilled Filet Mignon with a shitake mushroom sauce ($30) is all yours.
Owners, Jose Manuel Pereira, Luis Miguel Rodrigues, and Ricardo Brito - all natives of Portugal - are no strangers to the local restauarant scene. Combined the team have decades of experience at both Caravela, (formerly of Tarrytown) and Polpo, in Greenwich.
In short, they know how to run a restaurant, and with Bistro 12, it looks like they'll be here to stay.
Hours: Friday - Saturday: 12pm to 10:30pm; Tuesday - Thursday: 12pm to 10pm; closed Monday.
Address & Phone: 12 N Main St, Tarrytown New York / (914) 909-2770
Equus, located at the Tarrytown Castle & Spa, is one of the Westchester's most well regarded five-star restaurants.
Renowned Head Chef Marc Lippman serves French Auberge (rural) style cuisine and uses produce from our Hudson Valley farms as much as possible.
Order the Butter Poached Maine Lobster or the Loin of Colorado Lamb ala carte ($49). Or go for the 5 course prixe fixe menu, which includes appetizers, a seafood entree, a meat entree, and two desserts for $95.
The ambience is old-world and high class. Rich wood paneling, stone fireplaces, chandeliers, the whole bit. Certainly a memorable place for any occasion. (Ahem, guys, thinking of popping the question?)
The restaurant has several dining rooms. But try to get a table in the sunny Garden Room, which has dazzling views of the Hudson River and Manhattan Skyline; or the Oak Room.
Interestingly, the Oak Room's oak wood paneling came from a house that was originally owned by the Sun King himself, King of France - Louis XIV (that's the 14th).
Hours: Dinner served daily from 6pm-9:30pm. Lunch served Monday through Saturday from 12pm-2pm. Sunday Brunch is from 11:30am-2:30pm.

Little B's is a great beer and burger joint on Main street near the intersection of S. Washington Street in Tarrytown New York.
Their spin on America's favorite food is b.y.o.b. - build your own BURGER. And at $11 it's a pretty damn good deal.
First you choose your paddy, then the bun, cheese, toppings, and sauce.
I like creating a portobello burger on an arthur avenue bun smothered with caramelized onions, roasted red peppers, melted goat cheese, and their house BBQ sauce. And the fries always seem to be made fresh.
Whatever your imagination fancies, you can put it together step by step. Ahi tuna burger? Check. Chicken breast on a whole wheat bun? Check. Or just choose from their list of delicious house burgers.
In the same way, you can build your own salad, putting anything you want on it - cranberries and balsamic? Yes! Also, try one (or all) of their flavors of chicken wings - Cajun, Thai, and of course, the classic Hot Wings.
The bar has large selection of bottled beer and a handful of microbrews on tap. Wine and Cocktails available too.
Hours: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday: 4pm-12am; Closed Tuesdays; Friday & Saturday: 4pm-2am; Sundays: 12pm-12am. (will close early if slow).
Address & Phone: 49 Main St Tarrytown New York / (914) 631-2228
This cozy little pub near the Warner Library has been serving Tarrytown New York since 1981.
Patio seating is available out front, which I'd recommend, as the interior could be a little too dark for a beautiful day.
Order from the list of martini's, beer, and wine and take a minute to evaluate their HUGE food menu.
For lunch try one of their "Serious Burgers," enjoy a Deep Fried Flounder Sandwich, or a Philly Cheesesteak.
For dinner you could go for seafood and get the Cajun Catfish, Grilled Fresh Swordfish, and the Ichabod Cod. Or the Chicken 'n Biscuits, Shepherds Pie, or the BBQ Baby Back Ribs.
If street parking is not available, there is a small parking lot directly behind the strip of stores where Horsefeather's is located.
Hours: Sunday - Open daily. Wednesday: 11:30am-9pm; Thursday - Saturday: 11:30am-10pm. Brunch is available on Sat. & Sun. until 3pm.

Set Back Inn
The Set Back Inn has been serving bottled beer to football fans, teamsters, and volunteer Firefighters on Main Street since 1959.
They don't have any taps, don't accept credit cards, and don't serve food. But it's the only bar in town with a pool table, and, which also stays open till 4am. Every. Night.
On Friday and Saturday nights loud music from the juke box (or the occasional live band) and smokers spill out onto the sidewalks - oddly enough, right next door to the kid-friendly ice cream shop!
Sundays are for football, with just about every game on one of the flat screens. Venture in, soak up the old black/white Yankees memorabilia, glowing beer signs - and order a bud light.
Hours: Open Daily. Monday - Friday: 6pm-4am; Saturday - Sunday: 12pm-4am.
Address & Phone: 33 Main St, Tarrytown New York / (914) 631-9740
The Tapp, named for the bridge, and of course, beers on tap - is a hip little bar on Broadway near Central Ave.
Inside you'll be welcomed with the warm glow cast by old-fashioned incandescent bulbs, exposed brickwork behind the bar, and good music playing from the corner jukebox.
They have a great selection of beers, an enticing cocktail menu, and wine list. If you want to get right down to business, try the Boss Hog - a 'healthy' shot of rye whiskey served with a pint of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.
We love, love their house made hummus. It comes drizzled with syrupy balsamic vinegar, sun-dried tomatoes and little triangles of toasted pita bread for dipping. A great starter.
The charcuterie - a lovely plate of thinly sliced gourmet meats and cheeses with olives and toasted baguette slices also makes a fancy bar snack.
Larger dishes include their thin-crust pizzas, meatball sliders (a personal favorite), and other crusty and crafty bites.
Hours: Tuesday-Thursday: 5pm - 1am; Friday-Saturday: 5pm - 2am; Sunday: 4pm - 10pm; Closed Mondays.
Address & Phone: 17 N Broadway, Tarrytown New York / (914) 703-6022
Bridge View Tavern
Bridge View Tavern is a popular spot for the after-work crowds at the far end of Beekman Avenue in Sleepy Hollow, across from the old GM lot.
As the name implies, there are extensive views of the Hudson River and Tappan Zee Bridge.
They have a great selection of craft beers on tap and very good 'pub grub' to boot.
Co-owner, Chris Maceyak, with his unmistakable beard, is as friendly as they come. He's often making the rounds greeting customers and checking up on people and introducing himself.
Get it started with a plate of Steamed Mussels, served in a cream ale sauce; or their BVT Sliders - you're choice of pulled pork, beef burger, or BBQ brisket.
For an entree, since it's a Tavern, go for the Fish 'n Chips, - fresh Codfish crusted in a beer batter and 'fried golden to perfection.'
A children's menu is available and there is a separate dining area apart from the Bar area. In the warmer months you can sit outside and enjoy the views.
Hours: Monday: 4-10pm; Tuesday - Sunday 11:30am-10pm. Bar is open till 12am on weekdays and until 2am on Friday & Saturday.
Address & Phone: 226 Beekman Avenue, Sleepy Hollow New York / (914) 332-0078

It's Irish roots make it the place to be for the Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow St. Patrick's Day Parade.
Out back during the warmer months the pub opens up their Beer Garden.
In addition to the lively bar, Doyles also has a reputation for serving tasty pub grub and quality steaks, all at reasonable prices.

Lubins -N- Links
Lubins-N-Links is an awesome little hot dog shack on Main Street near the corner of N. Washington in Tarrytown New York.
The chalk menu above the counter offers dozens of specialty hot dogs and their homemade specialty, lubins (shredded beef on a hotdog bun).
My favorite is the Junkyard Dog, which comes with Chili, Cheese Sauce, Crumbled Bacon, Jalapenos, and Chopped Onions.
Wash it down with an ice cold can of Grape Soda. Nothing beats it.
Take your dog or lubin to the table on the sidewalk, or out back where they have a patio seating area.
Hours: Tuesday-Thursday: 11am-5pm; Fridays: 11am-7pm; Saturdays 11am-6pm; Sundays: 11am-5pm.
Address & Phone: 38 Main Street Tarrytown New York / (914)-909-4198
Yes, Main Street in Tarrytown New York is home to two hot dog places!
The Village Dog takes a more gourmet approach to this classic American snack, just up the block from Lubins 'n Links.
They offer house-made artisanal wieners, sourcing organic, non GMO meats and ingredients from local Hudson Valley Farmers and merchants.
Try the Philly, a beef dog with braised onions and provolone; the Hassan, a lamb concoction with tza-tziki sauce; or the Deep Blue Sea, a salmon boudin with cucumber 'kraut and lemon aioli.
Owner and chef, Carl Van Dekker has also struck up a working partnership with local brewer, Captain Lawrence. At their brewery in Elmsford, you can find the Village Dog set up, serving the crowds.
Hours: Sunday-Monday:11:30 am-8:00pm; Tuesday-Saturday: 11:30am-10:00pm
Address & Phone: 18 Main St, Tarrytown New York (914) 909-9000
Main Street Pizza
Main Street Pizza is your classic pizza joint, located down on the corner of N. Washington. This is my go to spot for Pizza in Tarrytown New York.
They do an excellent White Pizza with Extra Garlic, and the
dough-knots are only like 40 cents each. When's the last time you
remember buying anything less than a dollar, and it being worthwhile?
You can also get Calzones, cold/hot Heros, and Pasta dishes like Fettuccini Carbonara and Linguini with Clam Sauce.
Older men with whispery voices flipping pies behind the counter, Italian soccer on the TV... everything about the place screams New York pizza. What more could you want?
Hours: Open 7 days a week, 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Address & Phone: 47 Main Street Tarrytown New York (914) 631-3300
Mr. Nick's Brick Oven Pizza
Mr. Nick's is on Broadway near the Tapp and Swagat, the Indian restaurant.
It's been recently renovated and has pleasant outdoor seating on the sidewalk. Expect restaurant-caliber food in a casual, quick setting.
Mr. Nick's has the same owner as Dom and Vinnie's in Briarcliff (voted Best of Westchester), which has been in business since 1971.
We've eaten here on many occasions. I think I prefer Main Street Pizza, mainly for its sheer classic appeal, but Mr. Nick's is nice, too. And their pizza is very good. They also do Gluten Free Pizza.
In addition to pizza you can get your favorites like Lasagna, Chicken/Eggplant Parm Heros, Baked Ziti, and Shrimp Scampi. Ask about their specials, like Home Made Gnocchi and Tripe Marinara.
Hours: Monday-Thursday: 11:00am-10:00pm; Friday-Saturday: 11:00am-10:30pm; Sunday: 12:00pm-9:00pm.
Address & Phone: 21 N Broadway, Tarrytown New York (914) 366-0666
Coffee Labs Roasters
Coffee Labs in Tarrytown New York has cultivated some serious brand loyalty among residents.
I've seen people run across to the 711 (which has perfectly good coffee), use their ATM, run back across the street, and stand in a line that stretches out the door at Coffee Labs. (okay, maybe that was me.)
But the point is, people love this place. And for good reasons. These guys take their coffee seriously!
Owner Mike Love has developed relationships with small coffee farms in Guatemala and elsewhere in Central and South America. All the coffee that ends up in your cup is the fruit of these relationships.
Their huge roaster sits center stage, right there in the shop, churning up tantalizing aromas everyday.
You can get an assortment of coffees, teas, cappuccinos, you name it. The regular coffee is always changing. Beats Starbucks any day.
They also sell tasty muffins, croissants, and what-not and host live music on Friday and Saturday nights with local musicians.
Hours: Monday-Tuesday: 6:30am-6:30pm; Wednesday-Thursday: 6:30am-8:00pm; Friday: 6:30am-10:30pm; Saturday: 8:00am-10:00pm; Sunday: 8:00am-7:00pm.

Fancy some afternoon tea and a little sandwich? Well, Silver Tips is just the place for such a treat.
Choose from 100 varieties of teas, both ordinary and exotic, and savor the moment as you anxiously wait for the piping-hot pot to arrive.
For edibles, Silver Tips also has a full menu with sandwiches, soups, salads, quiche, and all sorts of other snacks to go with your chai.
Try the smoked salmon sandwich with cream cheese on pumpernickel bread, neatly quartered into delectable triangles.
At Silver Tips you can count on quality. Their tea comes straight from the owner's family's biodynamic tea estate in Darjeeling, India - "Tea Capital of the World!"
And, guys, fear not, this tea room isn't some Victorian-era, flowery affair; it's very middle-of-the-road. As their website states, "We believe in the democratization of tea."
Hours: Monday-Thursday: 11am-5pm; Friday-Sunday: 11am-6pm.
Address & Phone: 3 N Broadway, Tarrytown New York (914) 332-8515
Mint Premium Foods
Mint is one of our favorite places on Main Street in Tarrytown New York.
This is the perfect place to stock up for a picnic. Their gourmet food selection is perhaps the best in Westchester. They have stuff you can't find anywhere else.
Hassan, the owner, is a class-act. He's more than happy to cut handfuls of cheese and meat samples for you. Try before you buy is the policy.
Pair your cheeses with a baguette, star salami, olives, and pepperoni sliced-so-thin-it-melts-on-your-tongue; and you've got the best party snack on the block.
In addition to selling shelves of premium food goods from around the world, and as I mentioned, all sorts of meats and cheeses from behind their deli counter, Mint has also become an excellent full-serve restaurant.
The dining atmosphere is cool and sophisticated. Sit by the window or out on the sidewalk, if you can. But there are more tables in the back, all under the original tin ceiling that has been there since who knows when.
I suggest ordering their Steamed Mussels, one of their delish Toasted Paninis, and, well, just anything off their menu. You're bound to see something you like, vegeterian or carnivore. Lots of Belgian Beer choices, Wine, and Espresso, too.
Hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Closed Mondays.
Address & Phone: 19 Main Street, Tarrytown New York / (914) 703-6511
Swagat Halal Indian Cuisine
We've been to Swagat, the only Indian restaurant in Tarrytown New York, on many occasions.
One time, we were with a group of five, ordering three appetizers and four entrees, and our bill only came to $87.
Their BYOB policy makes a big difference, so bring your favorite bottle!
Start things off with their Masala Dosa, a light and fluffy lentil and rice pancake stuffed with potato.
For the main course try the Paneer Tika Masala, cubes of homemade cheese in a creamy and tangy tomato sauce; and the Lamb Saak, tender pieces of meat submerged in a creamy spinach blend.
Also, don't forget to order the Naan Breadbasket with your entrees. It comes with three types, Rosemary, Onion, and Garlic.

Wasabi Sushi, the Asian-style 'hut' on the busy corner of Beekman and Route 9 in Sleepy Hollow, is your best bet for authentic Japanese Sushi.
The small, family-owned restaurant has a welcoming vibe and prompt service.
Order from their appetizing list of Chef's Specialties like the Sleepy Hollow Roll ($13), which has eel, avacado, spicy kani (crab-meat), and crunchy tobiko (those little orange eggs) on top.
Their compact Bento Boxes ($9) make for a great lunch-on-the-go.

Taste of China
Taste of China, located on the corner near the Music Hall, is awesome. Sometimes all you crave is a steaming plate of Lo Mien on a cold winter day, right?
These guys are fast, and most importantly, serve quality Chinese food at a reasonable prices. Free delivery, too.
I recommend ordering your food to go, but in the summer time you might consider their outdoor seating.
As with any Chinese place, all the classics are here.
I'm a staunch supporter of their Sesame Chicken combo ($9.95). But, we've enjoyed many of their other dishes, too, such as the spicy Singapore Mei Fun.
Taste of China makes an effort to cater to their health conscious customers. A point of pride for them is that they use no trans fat oil, and use less salt and less starch than your average take-out joint.
Just get some brown rice and a plate of steamed veggies. It comes with some brown sauce to mix in, to spice it up a bit. It's very tasty and not boring at all. Other items off their 'healthy menu' include, Sauteed Spinach & Tofu and Steamed Shrimp with Asparagus.
Hours: Sunday-Thursday: 11:30am-11:00pm; Friday-Saturday:11:30am-12:00am.
Address & Phone: 17 Main Street, Tarrytown New York / (914) 332-1625
Main Street Sweets
Enjoy delicious homemade ice cream at Main Street Sweets.
This kid friendly place is colorful and has tons of personality; and you won't break the bank coming here, either.
Choose from dozens of their homemade recipes like the Main Street Special and the Butter Pecan Ice-Cream. Heavenly!
Soft serve, non-fat yogurt, gluten free options, and sorbet is available, too.
They also do custom birthday cakes. We ordered a large cake for my mother's birthday recently ($40) and our guests were raving about it. It was so large couldn't finish it all and rationed it out for dessert over the next 2 weeks!
Sitting out on their sidewalk tables on a warm summer evening with a cone of your favorite scoops, a cup of coffee, or warm-apple cider is the perfect way to cap a day in Tarrytown New York.
Hours: Tuesday-Thursday: 11:30am-8:00pm; Friday-Saturday: 11:30am-9:00pm; Sunday: 11:30am-8:00pm.
Address & Phone: 35 Main St, Tarrytown New York (914) 332-5757
Yogurt Le Crepe
Frozen yogurt shops have really seemed to sprout up everywhere around Westchester County lately. But, at Yogurt Le Crepe, they do things a little differently.
Not only do they serve up dozens of low-fat frozen yogurt flavors, like Dulce de Leche, Blueberry Burst, and Winter Pistachio, but they also specialize in crafting the deliciously thin French pancakes, Crepes.
Choose from the savory menu and get the Roasted Turkey Crepe with avocado, bacon, american cheese, and dijonnaise; or Prosciutto Crepe, with fresh mozzarella, basil, drizzled olive oil, and balsamic vinaigrette.
Or, try one something off their sweet menu, like the Simply Nutella Crepe with banana, strawberries, or both. The Classic Crepe comes with lemon juice, butter, and sugar. So good!
This is a great place to bring kids. Their window seats have ipads installed and loaded up with games. There's always a gaggle of children with sticky faces sitting at those things!
Hours: Monday-Thursday: 10:30am-10:30pm; Friday till 11pm; Saturday: 10:00am-11pm; Sunday: 10:00am-10:30pm. Winter hours are slightly modified.
Address & Phone: 61 N Broadway Tarrytown New York / (914) 372-7073
The Lighthouse Ice Cream & Coffee
Lighthouse Ice Cream & Coffee is located at the Hudson Harbor development down by the Tarrytown train station. (over the tracks).
They serve quality, handcrafted ice cream, gelato, sorbets, coffee, teas, espresso, pastries, cupcakes, and soups. In our opinion, the lemon sorbet is the best in town. The pineapple/basil gelato, too.
When you want a little treat to enjoy while watching a hudson river sunset, or when you need a coffee before catching a train into the city - this is your place.
The outdoor seating area has a large, stone water and fire fountain, which is great to sit around on a summer evening or chilly autumn day.
Hours: Monday-Friday: 5:30am-5:00pm; Saturday & Sunday: 9:00am-3:00pm.
Address & Phone: 127 West Main Street Tarrytown New York / (914) 502-0339
If you're looking to get off the beaten path, Amazonas serves authentic Ecuadorian food to the local latino community.
The atmosphere is a bit dim, despite its lemon/lime interior. And you can expect a fairly loud broadcast of Telemundo.
But the food is good. They have a lot of seafood/shellfish options like Paella Ecuatoriana, Jalea, and various types of Ceviche.
Last time I went I ordered the Bruchetta De Mariscos (fried seafood, rice, french fries, and salad for $14) and ordered a glass bottle Coke imported from Ecuador (gotta love the no corn-syrup stuff!).
They have lots of traditional soup and meat dishes, as well. You can even order the Ecuadorian classic - Cuy Asado, which is a whole roasted Guinea Pig!
Amazonas is definitely a 'dial 2 for English' type of place. But don't let the language barrier stop you. My Spanish is far from good and it's never been a problem.
Hours: Open 7 days a week: 6:00am-11:00pm.
Address & Phone: 60 Beekman Avenue, Sleepy Hollow New York / (914) 332-7790
There are several diners in Tarrytown New York - but Bella's Restaurant is the place I recommend going to.
You'll feel right at home at this Sunday morning favorite.
Come in for their heaping pile of pancakes smothered in maple syrup and dalloped with half melted slices of butter; and French Toast layered with strawberries and whipped cream.
Or just run in and grab a Bacon, Egg, Cheese sandwich to go or your favorite bagel with cream-cheese.
This classic diner has old-school comfort. Faux wood paneling, sign boards with crooked letters displaying the menu, and regulars on a first-name basis with each other. It might not look like much from the outside, but who cares!?
Hours: Monday-Friday: 6:00am-9:00pm; Saturday: 6:00am-6:00pm; Sunday: 7:00am-5:00pm.
Address & Phone: 5 South Broadway, Tarrytown New York / (914) 332-0444
The Pastry Chef
The Pastry Chef has been in business in Tarrytown New York since 1990. But owner, Patsy had been working at/owning bakeries since the 1950s.
He is now joined by his son, Michael, and the two of them are killing it here on Broadway.
We like stopping in for a coffee and whatever sweet assortments they have out in the display cases.
They do all your breakfast favorites, egg sandwiches, bagels, muffins, danishes, and coffee cakes. And they're open for lunch, making fresh paninis and sandwiches.
The real specialty here, however, is their custom cakes, deep dish pies, and cookies. Red Velvet cake, anybody? How about a scrumptious slice of key lime pie, or authentic homemade italian biscotti and butter cookies?
Hours: Monday: 8:30am-7:00pm; Tuesday-Saturday: 7:00am-7:00pm; Sunday: 7:00am-4:00pm.
Address & Phone: 57 Broadway, Tarrytown New York / (914) 631-6556
