Last night, March 27, 2012, a dear friend, Lucia and I dined at Sammy's Downtown Bistro and Bar in Bronxville NY. As we were being seated we realized that we were very close to other diners and after initial consternation we were given a more comfortable table assignment. We really did feel like the seating is a bit cramped but that was our only negative note. We shared an arugula and pear salad with wonderful fresh goat cheese and pecans. I thought it was perfect. I had the Pinot Noir and Lucia, a bit disappointed at the absence of a prosecco, had champagne. Our entrees were top notch. I had the salmon with a tarragon reduction and asparagus and Lucia chose the Veal Samantha which was also perfect. We both are great cooks and are a bit fussy about our meal prep. I love super fresh asparagus and have to say that mine was as good as when I pick it myself in my own garden. After dinner we strolled through downtown Bronxville past the flowering trees and many restaurants and shops to the local cinema. We saw Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and were somewhat dissapointed in it although it was entertaining in a light manner. Being in Bronxville in the evening is a very nice experience because there are so many fine restaurants to choose from where you get Manhattan quality meals. You also get the small town charm that Bronxville has while enjoying incredible proximity to the city. Living in lower Westchester County provides the best of all worlds.
