Chef Michael Cutney's newest Venture The Twisted Oak, takes a fun and casual approach to New American Fare with Italian Influences. Sourcing from Local Farmers and Growers,The Twisted Oak offers a daily changing menu featuring ingredients from the Hudson Valleys' Bounty. Located just steps away from the famed Tarrytown Music Hall, the Restaurant is set in a turn of the century photography studio. The main dining room is dressed with paintings from local artists and the bar, which was handcrafted from Oak Wine Barrels, you can expect to find boutique wines, seasonal cocktails, and local brews. The Twisted Oak is quickly becoming a neighborhood favorite with its delicious food, refined service, and excellent hospitality.

"OMG the service in this establishment is by far the worst I have ever experienced. The busboy poured water down my leg and into my friends purse! We should have left then but we stayed for dinner. This is a farm to table restaurant. We ordered 2 appetizers for 4 people and 4 entrees. The appetizers took 45 minutes to come to the table. We were starving. We ate them, they were fine, nothing to write home about. Tomato salad was several different types of tomatoes cut up with some dressing on top. Eh! Rather small for the cost. The main dishes were better than the apps but were not worth the additional 40 minute wait. We skipped dessert didn't want to wait again!"

From its first day, Emeril's Restaurant & the multitalented man who reinvents it with every meal became the focus of ecstatic praise. A decade after Emeril's Restaurant exploded onto the culinary scene, Emeril's has evolved & transformed itself for the 21st century by updating its flagship restaurant. Completed in 2000, the innovative details reflect the significance of the warehouse district location, new New Orleans cuisine & Emeril’s extensive wine list. The Food Bar is framed by a tapestry of glass encased spices showcasing the bold & creative flavors that Chef Emeril features. Emeril's state of the art kitchen is visible from the main dining room. Although walk-ins can be accommodated, reservations are highly recommended. Our dress policy is casual with no sleeveless shirts for men, no hats or flip flops. David Slater, Chef de Cuisine, and Kevin Delaune, General Manager, are dedicated to providing you with that memorable dining experience.

"The service is outstanding without being stuffy. We had eaten here three months ago and loved it. This time we were a little disappointed because the menu had not changed. There are limited non fish items and the preparations were the same. The service is the best I've ever had. Love it!"

Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! If you’ve never been to Benihana before, let us tell you what you can expect: Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups of eight to ten, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood. <br><br> Or you can visit our sushi lounge where a talented sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and signature sushi rolls with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. Smaller tables and more intimate seating is available in the lounge or bar on a first-come, first serve basis, whether you’re looking to enjoy one of our delicious Benihana Teppanyaki entrées or our amazing selection of sushi!

"Best of the standard hibachi restaurants. We didn't have any young kids at our table and the chef was less than energetic but the food was well prepared. They meow serve 12 at a table which takes lots of time to cook all the different items."

"The best service I have ever received in a restaurant. There were 3 of us and we had 4 people servicing us. Each introduced by name! The food was beautiful and delicious. Gumbo, salad, main meal of drum fish all outstanding. Will be back."

"Italian food in New Orleans is not like Italian food in New York. This restaurant is known for there BBQ shrimp. I don't recall seeing BBQ shrimp on an Italian menu before. My daughter loved them. They are jumbo (huge) shrimp in a black pepper sauce. Unfortunately each shrimp needed to be peeled so my husband was put to work. They said they were delicious."

Our menu is a mouthwatering compendium of some of the best recipes from Cuba. Many of these are family recipes that have traveled from one generation to another and which our family and friends have saved with great zeal and devotion. All of our meals are prepared daily using only the finest, freshest ingredients.
