Cellar 49 is a casual, small yet energetic tavern featuring modern twists on American fare. It is located on the grounds of Tarrytown House Estate in the cellar of the historic Biddle House Mansion.

"Make your guests feel like they're being dropped off at Downton Abbbey by taking the left prior to the parking area and proceeding to the stone covered port cochere then circling back to park. Enter the Biddle mansion at Tarrytown House and get a warm feeling right away from the blazing fireplace in the foyer. To your left is a narrow staircase to take you down to the "cellar" (hence the name). Passing through an inviting bar and lounge and game room area, proceed to one of three small dining areas (one is a 10 seat wine cellar available for tasting events). The "main" one has its own small fireplace to which we cozied up to in a nearby table. The staff is obviously used to catering to the corporate clientele the facility hosts for numerous conferences and their demeanor exudes friendliness and attentiveness. Don't be fooled by the label "small plates" or "appetizer", the dishes served are more than ample to feed two or more and can serve as entrees themselves. Duck tacos were scrumptious and a giant ball of borata cheese swimming in olive oil and peppers required a take home bag to finish. The thick smoked pork chop was worthy of a good NYC steak house. Massive shrimp (4) got a bit overwhelmed by too much grits (serve the grits on the side) but were equally good. Cheesecake "lollipops" (4) shared for dessert were drenched in hard chocolate and nuts need a thicker lollipop stick or a wooden one instead to avoid slight bending but were a nice finish to the evening. A decent wine list sourced from the area and beyond is worth a look."

"Le Chateau is still one of the best brunch buys in Westchester. For a prix fixe of $38, one starts with champagne, mimosa or bloody mary (all decent drinks not typical over orange juiced mimosa or unremarkable champagne); then croissant/bread selection (go for the stellar croissants) and - don't be shy if you want more than one; nice pace no pressure; menus offered up along with specials (listen up cause the specials are good); we had salmon and a special sea bass dish both great; more bread/croissants offered up (who can resist); then the delectable dessert tray - so hard to choose (and they'll encourage a second choice too). With a bottle of reasonably priced wine off a nice list, we had a thoroughly enjoyable winter brunch near a roaring fireplace with gracious and attentive service. Worth the trip to South Salem (near Westchester-Connecticut border off rt 35)"

Chef/Owner Anthony Caturano’s unique cooking style brings old world traditional Italian and Mediterranean cuisine to Boston’s North End. A full bar and over 500 wines to choose from enhance the experience.

"This is not your typical North End Italian restaurant. Just off Hanover, it might as well be in San Francisco or Manhattan. It's a bit pricey but the portions are large and service was friendly and attentive. Well worth a visit."
