I found myself in Bronxville around lunch last week so I stopped in to check out Sammy’s, a newish addition to the village. I was alone, so you’re not going to get a great feel for the food, but I quite liked what I tasted: the veal paillard with arugula, pear and dates:
They served a handsome order of bread:
I rarely order veal, but this dish really caught my eye on the menu. It was just what I was looking for in a lunch: something warm but not too heavily sauced with a bit of greens and some interesting flavor combinations.
With a little goat cheese on top, and the addition of pecans, it really hit the mark. The only thing I didn’t love were the dates. The dish is sweet enough with the pear.
Here’s a quick peek inside:
And the outside, where I was dining.
It was a lovely spring day and the people watching was a highlight. I can’t tell you how many drivers double parked their idling SUVs outside the post office blocking traffic so they could run in and mail a letter.
A lovely lunch.
