Frankie and Johnnie's Steakhouse has a look that is sleek and uncluttered, with a warmth that is inviting to all of its guests. The menu is distinguished with its exceptional quality of USDA certified prime dry-aged beef and a secret trend of spices that seasons every steak before it hits the grill. Also known for the freshest of seafood. Lobster, Chilean Sea Bass and Dover Sole.

"Charred just right, cooked to each of our guests liking. The steaks are juicy, and very flavorful. Always very consistent and great quality meat. A nice wine selection, some a bit pricey. Wait staff is very attentive."

Chef Michael Psilakis introduces his award-winning Greek-inspired cuisine to Westchester with the opening of MP Taverna, a modern interpretation of a traditional Greek tavern. MP Taverna’s accessible menu brings Psilakis’ Greek fare into the American culinary lexicon and is another step towards the chef’s goal of putting Greek cuisine on the culinary main stage. “The memories I have of cooking with my family are the inspiration for my restaurants, and I hope my guests create their own memories through their dining experiences at MP Taverna,” says Chef Michael Psilakis. “I want MP Taverna to be a destination for more than just a celebratory meal; a place that conjures the familiarity of your dining room table at home.”

"The food is always tasty and consistent whether it is off the regular menu or during restaurant week. We have never had a bad meal and enjoy the friendliness of the staff, some who have been there since it opened. Definitely a restaurant to return to."

With its charming atmosphere and bad attitude you won"t find anything quite like it. Our specialty is our fresh sushi bar. With rolls like g.i.jane, shiitake happens and Godzirra, how could you go wrong? Our huge bowls of noodles will satisfy big and small. Sandwiches, large salads, and a selection of other entrees round out the menu. We also feature a kids menu! Don"t forget the (soon to be famous) bucket of tater tots with our special tot sauce. Sticky Rice, established last century has been rolling on and on. Sticky Rice serves up an unusual mix of American, Pan-Asian entrees in a friendly, inexpensive and inviting atmosphere. Spring rolls, potstickers, sushi, noodles and edamame (steamed soy beans) are simple and standard. Lots of choices for vegans and vegetarians!

"A very casual place...like a bar tavern and a few small tables for food service. Assortment of dumplings, noodles and rice dishes as well as some sushi/sashimi dishes. Dining area could use a bit more lighting. Moderate priced dishes. Friendly service."

Since Rafael Palomino—Sonora’s Executive Chef and Proprietor—opened the doors to this, his flagship Latin-fusion restaurant, he has received accolades from a broad customer base, including an “Excellent” from the New York Times. This creative, Colombian-born (Queens-raised) chef and author of five cookbooks, has since opened 8 more restaurants that span three states (New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania). Sonora, like Palomino’s other restaurants, boasts excellent service and mouth-watering dishes, paired with an extensive wine list and cocktail offerings. In addition to impeccable service and delicious dishes, Sonora’s two-story home offers guests the possibility of having a custom-designed and catered on-site private party, for any occasion, from 12 to 110 people.

"A wonderful selection for a restaurant week menu, indicative of their offerings on the regular menu. Our guests were impressed by the quality of the food and the tastes and presentation. They rarely venture over to this side of the county to dine, but Moderne Barn has opened their eyes. The wait staff is very attentive, but unobtrusive. We still enjoy dining here for brunch, lunch, and dinner and will be coming back."

"Savona offered a nice selection for restaurant week...interesting choices of their regular menu. The flavors, presentation and preparation of the meals were very well crafted and well balanced. The beef carpaccio was delicious as well as the chicken liver with a fruit jam. The tender short ribs just melted in your mouth. The risotto was nice and creamy. The salmon was prepared as requested and the spaghetti and big veal meatball was creatively presented and delicious. All the entrees had great flavors, not overly salted. The desserts were not overly sweet and so yummy. The bomboloni were little dough balls, like zeppoli, accompanied by sauces, the bownie cake was delicate and the panna cotte was smooth. We will definitely make a return trip to Savona."

When we first opened our doors on the corner of Main Street here in Yonkers, New York just up the street from the revitalized Downtown Waterfront, we didn’t quite know what we were getting ourselves into. We really just wanted to bring a unique and authentic Cuban dining experience to this area with a family-like feel and comfortable atmosphere. After a few years in business here, we must say we love every minute of it! From our amazing achievements such as getting a write up in the New York Times, getting featured in editorials like Westchester Magazine and winning a Best of Westchester Award, and even being honored by the City of Yonkers. When you dine with us, we promise to provide you with a quality experience along with some amazing food that will absolutely satisfy most cravings. We strive to be consistent and to continue learning as we grow to become even better than before.

"The four of us really enjoyed the special midweek pre-fixe lunch menu. There are a lot of choices for different tastes. We each had a taste of each others entree and loved all the flavors. Everything was seasoned nicely, not overly salted. Desserts were just the right the amount of sweetness, not overly sweet. The sangria was very tasty but slightly sweet. Only dissapointment was there was no cream or milk for coffee, so we passed on coffee. In all we had a wonderful eating experience and enjoyed the attentive staff."

"We were surprised we had not been to Mario's before when we used to live in the Bronx. We decided to go there after the NY Botanical Garden's Train Show. The midweek prix fixe dinner menu offered a variety of choices and we enjoyed each of our courses. Every dish was flavorful and a nice size portion. We enjoyed the history of the restaurant and it's expansion stories, as we chatted with our wait person. The restaurant has photographs and oil paintings done by the family. Celebrities who have dined there also have their pictures on the walls. The family run restaurant was so warm and friendly and attentve. We will have to go back and try other dishes."
