The chefs at Goldfish Oyster Bar & Restaurant cook fresh seafood with a Mediterranean flourish, earning Westchester Magazine's award for Best Prix Fixe in 2010. The raw bar's 17 types of mollusks converge from across the United States and Canada, including blue point oysters from Long Island and jorstad oysters from Washington. From the open kitchen, sights and sounds of baking shrimp, grilling steak, and searing tuna stoke the restaurant's lively ambiance.

Bartenders tend to a glowing blue bar, mixing cocktails and dispensing their trademark Goldfish crackers to luckless fishermen. On Friday nights, live music gets toes tapping and oyster shells clacking.

6 Rockledge Ave

Situated along the Hudson River, The Boathouse's chefs create dishes centered around fresh-caught fish and American bistro favorites inside the cozy dining room. In the warmer months, diners sidle up to the sailboat-turned-bar outside to enjoy a seasonal bottle of craft beer or a glass of wine, or head inside to peruse the menu. A selection of 'Strictly Summer' classics includes lobster rolls, soft-shell crab, and the daily catch dressed in a Hawaiian shirt. Aside from seafood, The Boathouse also offers entrees such as rib-eye, sirloin, and their signature stuffed burger.

In the language of the Inca, a "tambo" represented a place of rest between the long journeys that messengers would take to relay information across great distances. Needless to say, the food they consumed was most likely as important as finding a place to rest and a Red Bull to drink or coca leaf to chew to give them energy. Today, El Tambo aims to offer respite to its customers by serving as a locale where they can sip on a smoothie or chicha morada?a purple, corn-based soft drink?and sample delicacies from Peruvian cuisine.

Chef Lucy, a native of Cusco (once a major city in the Incan empire), calls upon family recipes while preparing choros a la chalaca, comprising New Zealand mussels topped with a tangy salsa, along with seafood platters, rotisserie chicken, and fried pork loin. Each generously portioned plate leaves the kitchen and enters a colorful dining room, whose red drapes and tablecloths bring out the richness of details such as exposed brick and tiled awnings.
