September always feels a bit like the new year in a way — with back to school and back to a routine, it’s the start of life afresh – and that means lots of newcomers to the Westchester dining scene.
- Aesop’s Fable, Chappaqua: This vegetable-centric restaurant boasts a backyard with 10 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, 50 basil plants and rows of snap peas, squash, zucchinis, cucumbers and green beans — all organic. The goal, according to Chef Matthew Cook, is to offer eclectic, seasonal fare in a healthy and positive manner, locally sourced from farms no more than 100 miles away. Brunch was recently added to the menu. The restaurant, open since July 10, is at 13 King St., 914-238-3858.
- Katonah Woods Kitchen & Bar, Katonah: Located in the space formerly housed by Oliver’s, the family-friendly restaurant promises patrons “American eats and urban drinks.” It’s is at 128 Bedford Rd., 914-401-9600.
- The Granola Bar, Armonk: Salads, avocado toast and — of course, granola — are on the menu at this healthy eatery, open since Aug. 19. The Westport, Conn.-based eatery, with locations in Greenwich and Stamford, is at 575 Main Street in Armonk.
- Pub Street, Pleasantville: Owned by the Village Social Restaurant Group (known for its restaurants in Rye and Mount Kisco), the eatery, steps from Metro North, specializes in seafood (oysters are big) and American comfort food. The address is 20 Wheeler Ave., 914-741-0717.
And coming soon:
The Whitlock, Katonah: This new American eatery promises a menu that supports local farms, purveyors, and businesses to bring diners a hyperlocal and authentic experience. The eatery, located at 17 Katonah Ave., officially opens any day now!
