Where to Find the Best Bites to Eat on Westchester County’s Border

Michelle Gillan Larkin

Just outside the confines of the county, a world of culinary adventure awaits Westchesterites who hunger for the occasional change of scene.

With so much to offer in the way of food, drinks, cuisine, and sweet treats, there’s hardly a reason to wander beyond Westchester’s bountiful borders, but every so often the itch to get outta Dodge needs a good scratch. A spontaneous cry of “road trip!” may work for some, but for those who demand a destination or require a reason to get up and go, there are countless, delicious and indulgent excuses for an easy excursion over the county line. From down-home Southern cuisine in Rockland County to house-made ice cream with a view of the Hudson in Putnam, these foodie must-trys are no more than a stone’s throw away and an excellent break from the everyday.

Truly a site to behold, the Nutmeg State’s brand-new, sprawling and sparkling, waterfront office and event space is home to sleek and sexy dining destination, The Wheel, where the menu brims with ingredients sourced from upwards of 40 local farmers, fishermen, and purveyors. A hearth oven does the roasting for small plates to entrées and bakes bubbling Neapolitan-style pizzas.

If just a cold one is enough to make a visit feel complete, check out Cisco Brewers, which hails from Nantucket and pours coastally inspired craft beer Memorial Day through early fall, with occasional live music.
