Report: Blue Dolphin Diner, Katonah

M-L. | Nov 13, 2004 07:14 PM

After the wonderful show on Buddhist art at Katonah Museum, had a late lunch today at Blue Dolphin. We had nothing extraordinarily different -- a glass of wine each, homemade bread, salad of raddichio, Boston lettuce, and some other greens with Roma tomato, linguini pescatore, veal ravioli, ricotta cheesecake with a blob of real whipped cream, all of which we shared, and freshly brewed coffee. Total, without tip, came to about $40.

Sterns reviewed this place in Gourmet, I think. We ordered the veal ravioli on their recommendation and concur that that was the standout with truly discernable filling perfectly seasoned. Lovely tomato sauces, too. While the bread was delicious, I'd have preferred the authentic crusty Italian kind so easily available here. Also, the olive oil was good enough but not sufficiently sturdy for bread dipping. The cheesecake was light and not too sweet. By the way, their small bar looks to be stocked with top-of-the-line everything. In all, a place worth a return trip.
