Voted the Best of Westchester in 2003 and 2004 by both the readers and editors of Westchester Magazine, Slave to the Grind's owners Andrew and Carol Marshall have remained focused on brewing great coffee since 1993. Within the coffee house's retro interior, eight different brewed coffees stand ready to pour into cups staged on a mahogany and stained glass bar back salvaged from the burned-down Hotel Gramatan. With more than 50 bean varieties to choose from, visitors can also pick up bags to brew at home, including certified Kona coffee beans, cultivated on the slopes of Hawaiian volcanoes that regularly erupt with delicious cream and sugar.
The newest incarnation of the Capriccio Family Style Restaurant, Cafe Capriccio builds a menu of Italian classics from chef Elio Sobrero’s library of Old World recipes. The fresh endives and crunchy fennel of the Bianca salad ($7.95) go skinny-dipping in extra-virgin olive oil before house wine ($8.95/glass) unfurls a red carpet for a procession of savory flavors. Rather than perplex grumbling bellies with unrehearsed showtunes, diners can please them with a hearty veal capriccio, which arrives steeped in truffle sauce along with prosciutto and mozzarella ($19.95). Like fairy-tale heroines, linguine vongole’s clam sauce ($17.95) comes in a choice of rose red or snow white. Finish the meal with a treat such as the Four Seasons chocolate velvet cake or white-chocolate mousse ($5.95 each).
The founder of Lilli Pilli Health Bar came to New York from Australia via the Serengeti, Alps, and Morocco, bringing with her a love for the healthy food that fueled her adventurous, healthy life. Nourishing cold-pressed juices made from fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs are at the core of her menu—juices that can be sipped as simple refreshment or used as part of a multi-day cleanse. The chefs at this juice bar and eatery also assemble wholesome sandwiches and salads and simmer soups free from preservatives or Twinkies. Locally roasted coffees and a selection of loose teas provide a dose of caffeine or calming break from the day.

At Bing’s Burgers, cooks focus their grilling talents into crafting flavors not found at a typical drive-thru joint. While diners at the newly opened Fort Lee location can indulge in four types of slider and Bing's own beer-battered fish and chips, the menu centers around a lineup of burgers topped with combinations of unique ingredients. The Cali Burger sports a dollop of fresh, homemade guacamole and low-fat ranch dressing, and Bing's Signature Burger layers sauteed onions, gouda, and garlic aioli while also signing for incoming shipments.
