Survey: Best NYC Suburb for Food?

Lala | Nov 17, 2000 10:13 AM

I'm planning on relocating and among several factors I am taking into consideration is an area's FQ, or Food Quotient.

LI? Westchester? NJ? CT? Rockland? Would a general region be good, or do I have to look for good food towns within these suburbs?

I have not heard much about the east side of the Hudson, but I have heard on the west side of the Hudson in NJ - Fort Lee, Ridgewood, Montclair and Morristown. In Rockland County, Nyack, and maybe Suffern. In LI, Huntington is where I hear the eats are.

Also, I have a strange theory that where there might be a cluster of decent restaurants, may also be a community where you won't need a car. I drive, but I don't want to feel like I HAVE to drive.

I know it won't be like living in the city, but something like this would help to make a transition from city life to suburbia.

I guess I am looking for an equivalent to Bay Ridge, Brooklyn (where I am from) with a good homey variety of eats, both ethnic or more continental, good but it doesn't have to be fancy or trendy. (Alas, I may never find an equivalent to Karam anywhere else)

Maybe the Hudson Valley instead and forget about the immediate NYC suburbs?

Thanks for your help.
