After my not so minor accident of last week – I am glad to be back. This week – the Westchester calendar of events revolves around Valentines day. Thank goodness we are expecting a slightly warmer weekend as well as sunny skies. Today when I saw the bright sunshine – I was almost in shock!
For those who want to enjoy a bit of outdoor exercise – there are many romantic places to walk and enjoy the winter wonderland.
My suggestions would include –
1. The ever amazing Rockefeller Preserve – The Preserve is open daily until dusk and the walking the trails is wonderful no matter what time of year it is.
2. Kingsland Point Park in Sleepy Hollow and Pierson Park in Tarrytown. The Hudson River gets the sunsets – so going near dusk will assure you of nature serving up a colorful display.
3. If you prefer salt water – Manor Park in Larchmont provides a wonderful backdrop for a romantic walk. You don’t get the blazing sunsets – but the views are spectacular none the less.
4. For those who like to skate – the Playland Ice Casino is offering
Equus Restaurant – at Castle on the Hudson in Tarrytown – is offering Valentines full course dinners on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. – Pricey but worth it
Sweet Grass Grill – in Tarrytown offers seasonal organic fare. Excellent food and near the Hudson River for those who want to enjoy romantic sunsets.
X2O Xaviars – Yonkers – Wonderful Sunset views. Contemporary American cuisine with vaulted ceilings and 3 glass walls to ensure that the water views can be enjoyed by all.
Chat 19 – in Larchmont – American Cuisine – casual yet upscale. Personally, I love Chat 19. It was one of fathers favorite restaurants and he was a 23 year resident of Larchmont. Take a walk in Manor Park and enjoy a wonderful meal.
Le Provencal Bistro – in Mamaroneck. A wonderful French Bistro. Admittedly, I have not been there personally, but have heard nothing but good things.
Legal Sea Food – White Plains NY – For those who are craving seafood – Legal Seafood in White Plains is a popular destination with fresh fish and shell fish – variety is never an issue.
Massa Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar – in Scarsdale at the 5 corners on Weaver Street. Classical Italian menu with an emphasis on seafood. Vaulted ceiling and Old-World charm.
Half Moon in Dobbs Ferry – American Cuisine – casual dining and magnificent river views including the Manhattan skyline.
Zitoune – Mamaroneck – Moroccan cuisine – for a change of pace with a nouveau twist. Once again – I’ve heard good things from foodies – so I’m going by word of mouth – no pun intended.
