La Camelia in Mt Kisco (or is it Bedford Hills)

Sharon | Aug 12, 1998 09:15 AM

We used to go to this beautiful Spanish restaurant for tapas all the time--usually a delicious selection for a weekend lunch--but hadn't been there for dinner in ages until last night. The place was deserted (I guess Tuesday is not a big night for them), but the food was terrific. Sardine fillets on endive leaves with a sweet/hot sauce for appetizer, zarzuela (seafood stew flavored with fennel and saffron), various fish dishes were all innovative, fresh, and delicious. Lots of vegetables, too--not just fish on a plate. Homemade apple tart--basically caramelized apples on a thin, crispy crust--was a wonderful and simple dessert. Another nice thing about this place is how pleasant it is in its perch over not-so-scenic 117 with its gas stations and fast food restaurants.
