Bridgeview Tavern in Sleepy Hollow. Just off the main road, this iconic eatery has delicious, even playful craft beer options, enjoyed in a lovely beer garden area. With exquisite food options as well, it is worth the tiny wait sometimes caused sometimes by the ‘No Reservations’ policy. Enjoy the spectacular sunset views over the Pallisades.

CHUCHOK THAI

I’ve been asked recently quite a few times if there are any good places nearby for Thai food and I have to say that my absolute favorite place hands down is Chuchok Thai in Sleepy Hollow. You can safely try anything on the menu and you know it’s going to be good – just beware of some of the spicy dishes if that’s not your thing.
