Got to La Camelia off N. Bedford Road, Mount Kisco, about 12:30 p.m. for a business lunch and it was quiet. When my guest arrived we decided to eat in the pub room at the bar. I had not been here for quite some time, not since founder Antonio Alvarez sold it to Victor & Serafina Varela a number of years ago. It sits on a quiet hilltop and I recall in season the surrounding gardens add a great deal of charm to the setting.
The Tapas selection is the default lunch menu, I guess, and it affords a number of choices. We ordered several: Amejas Rellenas, baked little neck clams; Enpanadillas Gallegas. veal meat turnovers with mixed greens; and a dramatic plate of Camarao de Mocambique, grilled tiger prawns. Each dish well flavored with an appropriate dipping sauce. We found ourselves double dipping into the leftover little neck clam sauce, though. There was good crunchy bread on the side. A really fine Rioja red wine was a perfect compliment to the light meal. Thanks to the house for recommending the bottle. It was nice to be back. www.lacameliarestaurant.net
