An Introduction

Call me "rosalion." Hallo!!!
I've been reading these boards for a while now.
Finally decided to take the leap and join the ranks of post-ers. Thought an introduction wouldn't hurt. I may not have the most discriminating taste, but I'm human, I consume food several times each day (usually out,) and I'm not shy about my opinion.

Like many of you, I adore:
-Blue Hill at Stone Farms in Pocantico Hills
-Kneaded Bread in Port Chester
-Nessa also in Port Chester
-Toyo Sushi in Mamaroneck

I don't often read about these places, but like them quite a bit:
-Patrias in Port Chester (where I get my belly's fill of chicha morada and croquetas)
-Trattoria Vivolo in Harrison (order the penne al limone, it's great)
-Sherwood's in Larchmont (for the ribs, BBQ shrimp, and amazing fried chicken)
-Piccolo Mulino in Mamaroneck (okay, so I was proposed to there, so I'm partial, but still...)
-Cafe Mirage in Port Chester (interesting lobster bisque)
-Sardegna in Larchmont (for the succulent seafood pasta dishes)
-Bangkok Thai in Mamaroneck or is that Larchmont? (the Koong Massamun is yum in my tum)

Guilty pleasures:
-I'm a total addict of the sea scallops with gnocchi, sweet potatoes, and spinach at Bravo! (ack! a chain! ack! stop the exclamation points!!) at the Palisades Mall. They also have the plastic-bottled peach iced tea I used to drink daily in Italy during my 3 year stint there. Not glamorous ... I worked in an outdoor market selling Florentine leather jackets to tourists and sweating out all that iced tea during the heat wave.
-the enchiladas de mole poblano at (ahem) Casa Maya on Central Avenue in Scarsdale. What... sometimes it's really good. I'm also willing to take the chance on their goat milk crepe dessert, even though sometimes it comes out cold, or with chocolate sauce instead of caramel. Yeah, I know...
