Supposed Mafia hangout in N. Westchester with ricotta cheesecake??

adorno | Jun 14, 2007 05:04 PM

This is a long shot but I had a bout of nostalgia and was wondering about a restaurant my aunt took me to probably 35 years ago. I don't have a lot to go on and it may no longer exist but if it does, I'd love to go back. All I remember is that it was in Northern Westchester -- perhaps near Pleasantville or somewhere close to but south of Peekskill. It was, I think, a house that had been turned into a restaurant. I seem to feel that there was a parking lot to its immediate right. I believe it was not in a town but in the countryside. My aunt said it was known as a place the Mafia would hang out (and she was a pretty prim and proper person so for her to say this either means it really was notorious or she was exaggerating something benign). All I remember is that it had a really good ricotta cheesecake.

Is this enough for someone to identify this place?
