Fairfield County's favorite celebration restaurant. "The Melting Pot is pure entertainment" says the NY Times. The Melting Pot has the recipe to make all your occasions special. Relax in our private, elegant atmosphere and let our attentive servers guide you through our selection of fondues, sauces and fine wines. Remember to leave room for our prize-winning chocolate fondue. <br /><br><br><br />We are THE venue for Bridal and Baby Showers, Bachelorette Parties, birthdays or any occasion that has to be fun and different. <br /><br><br><br />Fondue is fun and nobody does it better than The Melting Pot in Darien. <br /><br><br><br />Winner "Award of Excellence" Wine Spectator magazine. <br /><br><br><br />Zagat Rated "Excellent". <br /><br><br><br />- Accredited by the American Vegetarian Association 2004 - 2011. <br><br> <br />* For parties of 7 or more please call the restaurant.

Centrally located on Route 9 in scenic Irvington, this bustling restaurant entices it's guests with an eclectic menu of creatively presented seasonal dishes. A major interior renovation this past summer reveals earth tones and a rustic chic look. The new bar room has seating for up to 30. A creative drink menu & a global wine list round out the experience.

experience a unique blend of vintage elegance, inventive cuisine and captivating nightlife at Club Car Restaurant-Lounge, the hottest ticket in town. Housed in the restored Mamaroneck train station, an architectural landmark built in 1888, Club Car is the vision of Brian MacMenamin, also responsible for bringing you Westchester’s Post Road Ale House, MacMenamin’s Grill & ChefWorks and Larchmont Avenue Oyster House. Renowned for bringing bygone locations to life, his latest creation serves up fine New American cuisine in a warm yet sophisticated setting that combines carefully preserved details like stained glass and original brick with artfully chosen modern touches. <br><br> This same fusion is reflected in the menu, where classic fare is injected with innovative international flair. The thoughtfully prepared dishes are complemented with a wine list inspired by the one that received a prestigious Wine Spectator award at MacMenamin’s Grill.

"Set in a century old rail road station and nestled in the heart of Mamaroneck, the outstanding aesthetics of the building matches the cuisine. A great menu with a variety of dishes.

As MH Reed observed in the New York Times in February 2008, “Red Hat is so close to the river in Irvington that when the wind is up and the waves slap the shore, their icy spray covers the riverside path to the restaurant.” The two level, French bistro-inspired eatery is housed in a hundred -year -old factory building that has been transformed to feature an uninterrupted, 180 degree view of the river from the main and loft dining levels. Guests will enjoy the seasonal, Hudson Valley ingredients, as well as French bistro classics.

"A terrific dining experience with a great selection of appetizers and entrees only to be matched by fantastic service. Set along the Hudson River at the foot of Irvington, the Red Hat is not one to miss."

Located at 670 White Plains Road (Route 119) in Tarrytown, the new restaurant offers a diverse menu ranging from signature flat breads to fresh vegetable dishes, and entrees featuring meat and seafood sourced from local purveyors.<br />One of the premier dishes on the menu is the 20-ounce Grilled Rib Eye Steak served with broccoli rabe and wild mushroom butter. The menu also includes more basic sandwiches that feature artisanal and specialty ingredients. <br />Five flat breads are a signature feature of the menu -- fresh mozzarella, tomato sauce and fresh basil; Coach Farms goat cheese, arugula, heirloom tomato and truffle oil; fig, bella bella duck prosciutto, gorgonzola and scallion; portobello, wild mushroom puree, red onion and fontina; and house made ricotta, local mozzarella and caramelized onion – all baked in the custom-made wood-fired oven. <br />

"With the wait staff eager to please and a diverse menu, Com Dunwoody is worthy of returning. All the dishes will challenge your palette. I particularly liked the Shocking Noodles with shrimp and beef. I hope to come back to try other appetizers and entrees."

The Rye Grill and Bar reopened to large crowds in January 2009 after a major renovation that boasts four separate dining rooms, fireplaces and a front porch. Long-time patrons will be relieved to know that it's still the casual neighborhood spot they've always loved. The Grill offers the same friendly service and menu favorites that made it a crowd pleaser for fifteen years, from it's fried calamari, Cajun chicken quesadillas and 4-layer dip to its salads, pizzas, sandwiches, sliders and burgers. Popular entrees include the Rye Grill's signature farfalle with hot Italian sausage, pan roasted filet mignon, pot chicken and fish selections. Guests may have drinks and appetizers in its lively mahogany bar room on the first floor or enjoy a bit more quiet at the nautical themed bar upstairs. Dining room options accommodate all for, dinner and private parties. Valet parking is available at lunch during the week.
