So sick of overpriced Westchester!

I would like to have a (mini) rant, please bear with me...

My girlfriend and I go out to dinner 1 or 2x a week, we are in our mid-20's and are very busy and just never have time to cook, we both live in Harrison.

I took her to X20 on saturday night for her birthday, and we were both amazed by the quality of the food and level of service. It was the best meal I have had in my life! What really annoyed me though, was the fact that it wasn't that much more expensive than other restaruants we frequent!

How ridiculous is it that entrees at Espana (in Larchmont), Fish (in portchester), the high street roadhouse (in Rye), Morgan's Fish house, Ruby's etc. etc. are all in the 25-30 price range and that is the same as x20? Heck, some of our favorites in the city (such as craft or hearth) are also in a similar price range..

Our total bill was $150 at x20 (she had a few glasses of wine) with 2 apps and 2 sides and I think that it is a great deal! What I think is a horrible deal is paying $120 at some of the other westchester restaraunts and walking away with an "above average" experience.. I got a bill for $120 at the high street roadhouse 2 weeks ago and I just couldn't believe it! I typically pay a similar amount at FISH and walk out still hungry!

Cliff Notes:
Don't waste your time at most Westchester eateries, if you want to pay good $$ for food go to the city or go to X20...
