I’ve took me a while to muster up the cojones to try this place. Sure, the location is obviously amazing being that it’s right on the Mighty Hudson (pictured), but after reading the reviews and having a very lack-luster experience at Harvest on Hudson (which seemed to be cut from a similar cloth), I was in no hurry.
But now that I’ve gone, I’m happy to say that I’m glad I finally went. Not that the place is stellar by any stretch, but it’s nice for a drink or a casual lunch, especially when it’s warm enough to sit outside. And the food, while hit and miss, proved to be a hit on the lobster roll as far as I’m concerned. Much, much better than the majority you’ll find in Westchester. And while it looks like it’s going to be mayonnaise heavy, it’s actually quite lemony, which keeps it light. The crab cakes are okay and the salad- well, let’s just say this isn’t the place to get salad. I did, after all, say it was hit and miss.
Also, the chocolate volcano was a bit lame as well. Not atrocious per se, but not a true volcano either. Like I said, go for the view and a casual lunch or drinks, but leave the high expectations for places like The Cookery.
