AJ’s Burgers and America’s Favorite Foods  We recently discovered this fun family restaurant in New Rochelle. Good classic American fare and wraps…with an average check of under $10. they’ll bring dough to the table for kiddies to make their own weirdly shaped bread.  542 North Avenue, New Rochelle, NY  914.235.3009.

Anthony’s (from LOOP reader Jesse M.): Anthony’s Deli is the perfect place to pick up a sandwich for lunch. Always overflowing (the sandwich), get exactly what you want–and I don’t know anyone who can resist the chicken parm sandwich.   619 Halstead Avenue, Mamaroneck.

 

Augies  Big plates; family style Italian. Lots of regulars. 2417 Boston Post Road, Larchmont. 914.834.3800.  (see comments below)

 

 

The Barnacle BBQ   The Barnacle is an unpretentious, comfortable casual spot with really good food and an owner who tries his hardest to please. TV screens for sports. Menus on their website .  181 E Boston Post Road Mamaroneck NY 10543  914.777.6610

 

Bellizzi    People are somehow drawn here by the playroom, but a once decent diversion for kids is now a video game arcade on steroids. A mini- New Roc City. Be prepared to spend the night digging for quarters. We don’t think the food here is worth the stress. 1262 Boston Post Road, Larchmont. 914.833.5800.

 

Chat 19  Good cocktails, reliable food. Same family owns Lusardi’s. Getting very bridge and tunnel on weekend nights, and can get 4 deep at the bar. Come to think of it, you do have to cross a bridge to get here… 19 Chatsworth Avenue, Larchmont. 914.833.8871.

 

East Avenue Cafe  Good coffee, good food and friendly service at the counter. Just be prepared for the owner’s sense of humor (“Is that your grandchild?” he asked a young woman about her baby) A wall of candy by the pound. 2 East Avenue, Larchmont.

Harbour House Coffee Shop  A dying breed. Old school greasy spoon.Go for the atmosphere and bacon and
eggs. 1927 Palmer Avenue, Larchmont.

 

Harry’s Burritos  Offshoot of locations in Manhattan.  The margaritas are much better than the food. Plenty of options for vegetarians. Love the chili pepper string lights.   94 Chatsworth Avenue, Larchmont . 914.833.2222.

 

Hubba (from LOOP reader Jesse M.):There are no words to describe HUBBA in Port Chester. The ONLY place to go in Westchester for the ultimate late night indulgence. Be sure to order your Hubba Water, ‘cuz that chilli is HOT!  24 North Main St. Port Chester.

 

 

Larchmont Diner  Not bad, but we prefer Nautilus Diner for the food and atmosphere. 2399 Boston Post Road, Larchmont.  914.833.2062

 

Larchmont Tavern  Local bar with a long tradition. Recent change of ownership; much better food. Still crazy after all these years.   104 Chatsworth Avenue, Larchmont. 914.834.9821.


Leonardo’s   Part pizzeria, part deli, it’s alll good.   2133 Palmer Avenue, Larchmont.914.833-2400.

wners as Rye location. Ice cream is priced by weight. Good frozen yogurt.New birthday party area. We all scream! 
  1941 Palmer Avenue, Larchmont.  914. 834.0207.

 

Los Gemelos Restaurant and Tortilleria: (from LOOP reader Petra P): For an authentic taco made with a freshly baked tortilla or a delicious chicken mole, head to the no-frills Los Gemelos in Portchester.  After dinner, check out the selection of huge amazing ice pops at Paleteria Fernandez. 167 Westchester Avenue,  Port Chester, NY (914) 934-0372 

 

Mamaroneck Diner    Fast service. Super kid friendly.  Extensive menu.  Especially good soups and salads. They deliver.  405 East  Boston Post Road, Mamaroneck. 914.698-3564.

Nautilus Diner Good, reliable and better than basic. 1240 West Boston Post Road Mamaroneck. 914.833-1320

 

Nicky’s Pizza  Good pizza, negative atmosphere. Nicky’s is to Murray kids what Villa Maria is to Chatsworth. Get a slice and try the garlic knots.  144 Chatsworth Avenue, Larchmont.  914.834.3232.

 

Paleteria Fernandez This gem for those in the know may have the best ice cream anywhere, but it’s not like any you’ve seen before. Authentic Mexican pops are milk or water based with flavors like mango, avocado and caramel. then they can dip them in chocolate, coconut,  etc…. Mamaroneck Avenue, Mamaroneck and 33 North Main Street, Port Chester,


Ray’s  Best Chinese food in the area.All natural. If only they delivered. Try a “bird’s nest,” crunchy noodles, for the kids.  1995 Palmer Avenue, Larchmont. 914.833.2551. 

 

 

Sal’s Pizzeria  How on earth we forgot about Sal’s (see comment below) we will never understand. Pizza Nirvana. Sicilian and Salad pizza top rated. 316 Mamaroneck Avenue. Mamaroneck. 914. 381.2022.

 

Sherwood’s Classic Larchmont pub.  Very good bar-b-que, burgers and large salads.  If you are a fan of wings or ribs, you have to try them here.  10-cent wings at the bar Monday nights.  Two crowds for dinner: one early with kids (6-8pm) and a later night crowd (after 10pm).  2136 Boston Post Road, Larchmont.

 

 

Stan’Z Cafe  A-List mommy crowd. Excellent sandwiches and salads.  Breakfast and lunch only.  Can get packed on weekends.26 Chatsworth Avenue, Larchmont. 914.833.9760.

 

Tequila Sunrise  The best guacamole anywhere. And those margaritas….Nice sidewalk tables in good weather.   145 Larchmont Avenue, Larchmont. 914.834.637. tequilasunrise

 

Toyo Sushi   One of best sushis the area.  (Though people like Koo in Rye.)   Casual, friendly, pretty fast service.  Great for a weeknight.  Good value.   They do a lot of take out business, and they deliver. The acoustics are awful, but  no one will care if your kids are noisy.  253 Mamaroneck Ave, Mamaroneck. 914.777-8696. toyosushi 

 

Villa Maria Pizza  Reliable convenient pizza joint with plenty of seating. Beer available. (see Nicky’s) 6 Chatsworth Avenue, Larchmont. 914.834-8134.

Forget the Harbor House. It once was a great place but is in need of remodeling and EXTERMINATION. I found a roach under one of my Breakfast Potatoes. I still have the skin crawls!

Hajime in Harrison is some of the best Sushi, just make a reservation before you go!

Carlyn’s Cove for a cold beer and good bar food (better than the diner!) Across from the Village Hall in Larchmont on Boston Post Road.

Kearn’s Deli is great! We’re going to make sure we’ll still pass it on the way to the train when we buy a house.

What about the East End Cafe? That’s a great place to have a nice Saturday outing, with or without children. (Try the #28. You’ll never order anything else. Unless they have blueberry-corn muffins, which are a rare find but completely worth it.)

I’d add Augies to this list for when the extended family descends and you need to feed a lot of people. Huge portions at this family-style Italian and the foods actually not bad.
