OK, my little sister turned me on to Kira Sushi in Armonk it's in a strip mall on rt128 I think. This place is good, real good, worth going to Armonk good. Try the Magic Roll, we went sat at the counter and just sort of tried things out. The chef was real understanding and enjoyed helping us make selections. Had a very good time there as well. My sister is the big sushi person in my family and since she lives in NYC and has been to probably every sushi place you can think of (it's an obsession with her)an Armonk recommend is a big deal.

Il Bacio a small trattoria (sp?) in Bronxville at 1 Park Place. Park Place is the side road off of the northbound side of the Metro-North Bronxville Station. Anyone remember "Alex & Henry's" in Scarsdale and the Bronx? Same owners and chef. I have enjoyed everything I have had there. Try the sicilian slice, I don't know what it is about their sauce but it is incredible, even cold the next day. Great pink vodka sauce, try the balsamic grilled chicken with sauteed spinach on the side. Very casual atmosphere, but they tend to get packed. This place is New!!! only open for 3 months now.

Looking for good solid standard Chinese ? try the Golden Wok on Central Ave. in Yonkers it's in a strip mall just south of Nathan's. Same mall houses Catania's pizzeria, which a previous thread raved about, sorry I have never been impressed with this place, way to greasy, just average pizza.

Across the street from these 2 places are "Pasta 'e Pesci" a not to shabby Italian place although I liked it better when it was smaller and the accordian guy wasn't hanging all over you. Still the food is quite good. Also there is a cheap but good rib joint, I can't quite remember the name, but I do know I liked the food here.

I think that the Pizza standard is John's Pizza on Devoe Ave. near Mclean Ave. just on the Yonkers side of the Yonkers/Bronx border, Nick and his brother Frank know how to make a good pie, thin and crunchy. Not a brick oven place regular gas type ovens. Tell them how you want it gooey, crisp well done whatever they will accomodate you. Ask for a custom pie, fresh tomatos instead of sauce, fresh garlic, spinach, cheese, well done. It's not on the menu, but so what it's to die for.

OK anyone have any comments or places I should go to? While I have lived in Bronxville for the last 5 years I am a NYC commuter and generally spend more time in Manhattan than westchester so any recommends will be appreciated, thanks ~ Jerry
