Fresh ingredients from local farms fill the dishes at Chopstick Asian Bistro, transforming familiar ingredients into culinary journeys across the sea. The chefs artfully plate Japanese, Thai, and Chinese dishes, such as chicken teriyaki and thai crab cakes, while the sushi chefs deftly roll traditional and specialty rolls. One such roll, the Chopstick Special roll, snuggles tempura shrimp with cucumber and crab, which the chef sends out with mayo, tobiko, and a wistful goodbye.
Crystal chandeliers hover above tables accented with colorful cloth napkins, illuminating Bombay Castle's guests as they dine within the contemporary restaurant's sunlit garden room, spacious dining room, or elegant banquet hall. However, despite Bombay Castle's contemporary decor, the menu remains traditional. Experienced chefs lovingly handcraft authentic paneer and warm naan and bake seasoned lamb, chicken, and goat in a clay tandoor oven. The restaurant even extends its culinary borders to include several Indo-Chinese dishes packed with spicy chicken, thin noodles, and vegetables, whereas popular Indian desserts made from milk and spiced sugar syrup can finish off any hearty meal or indoor naan-tossing match.
The Lynch family history in the East Coast restaurant industry dates back to the early 1930s. With Prohibition coming to an end, Patrick Lynch opened the Riverside Grill on 125th and Broadway. Since then, Patrick's ancestors have carried on what is now a family tradition, establishing eateries in Congers and Tomkins Cove. Their latest edition, Lynch's Restaurant in Stony Point, does what the Lynch family has done for nearly a century: fills empty bellies with carefully prepared, slowly cooked American dishes, ranging from pastas and seafood to succulent steaks and Angus beef burgers.
Inside Las Margaritas, eye-catching Mexican folk art and a bar with deep-blue tiles surround patrons digging into sizzling fajitas and spicy enchiladas. In the kitchen, chefs whip up such south-of-the-border specialties as ceviches, pollo mole poblano, and steak monterrey. Bartenders complement the complex, sometimes spicy flavors of these feasts with tangy margaritas, sweet sangria, and beer.
Las Margaritas also encompasses an expansive patio, where guests can take in views of the Hudson while dining in the sunlight or taking shelter beneath umbrellas that block out bright rays and falling satellites.
The grills at Pomona Chophouse stay busy searing everything from burgers and T-bones to St. Louis–style ribs and salmon fillets. The chefs manning these grills also whip up appetizers to be shared in the family-friendly dining room. Wines from California, Italy, South America, and Down Under complement the upscale plates, and specialty martinis come in dessert-y incarnations such as caramel apple and key-lime pie.
