Chef Jorge Adriazola's imaginative dinner menu of small plates and entrees puts an exciting spin on Latin classics and earned Cienega recognition as one of Westchester's Best New Restaurants. Beginning with one of four types of ceviche—which splash fruity or Asian flavors over morsels of cold seafood—diners move on to pass shareable plates inspired by Mexican street food or classic Colombian dishes. Full entrees, meanwhile, mingle traditional Latin recipes with innovative garnishes such as tomatillo-parsley gastrique, or spiked tomato sauce, each of which can accompany sides that the New York Times says are "stars in their own right." During brunch, locally sourced eggs beget coconut-crusted french toast and chorizo-laden benedicts to reinvent morning meals better than the recent inception of unsliced bread. With its lofty ceilings, slick dark wood, and twinkly hanging lights, Cienega's contemporary interior offers the ideal ambiance for a first date or last supper before tomorrow's breakfast. Diners can drop in Sundays for meals accompanied by the sweet jazz serenades of a quartet of international musicians.

Zagat Ratings ...They “make a mean burger”, “killer milkshakes” and a range of “hearty” American eats “served in a skillet” at this “reliable” New Rochelle eatery; the “diner atmosphere” doesn’t faze the “Iona college crowd” or “locals with small children” who t
Fifth Avenue Pizza presents a very extensive menu. That cuisine roster includes specialty pizzas such as a chicken parm pie and a veggie pizza. There are also sandwiches, calzones, and pasta entrees. The restaurant's wings come with a variety of sauces such as barbecue, teriyaki, and dry Cajun rub.
It makes sense that Il Forno is named after the Italian term for "oven." After all, a brick oven is central to the restaurant's menu; its radiant heat roasts fresh seafood and bakes pizza crusts to perfection. Il Forno's chefs also prepare other fine Italian cuisine, including traditional pasta dishes and shareable appetizers. They back each of these specialties with an impressive guarantee: they'll never send a meal into the dining room that they wouldn't gladly devour themselves.
