Good morning. What are you doing to beat the heat? I went to Wasabi in Nyack yesterday…. I couldn’t take even lighting the grill.  The salmon ceviche special with watermelon was delicious and refreshing.


With that, here’s a look at what people have been talking about this weekend:

MH likes Jeff Raider’s cooking at One in Irvington. (NY Times) (At the time I linked this, there was no box online, so I can’t tell what the rating was…)

Make Your Own wine in Elmsford. (NY Times.) (Here’s the JN article from 2005.)

James gets the 2-by tasting menu at Iron Horse Grill: thinks the restaurant is professional and consistent but prefers more progressive flavors. (A Man Has to Eat.)

Doug and his Meet Up group go to f.i.s.h. in Port Chester. His verdict: solid, if not spectacular. (Hungry Travels.)

Julia doesn’t adore Mima in Irvington. (Westchester magazine.)

Julia gives Crabtree’s Kittle House a non-review, and seems to love most of the food but gives the “down at the heels” decor a pass. (Westchester magazine.)

Some thoughts on Velo in Nyack. (Chowhound)

Some other thoughts on the new Q in Mount Kisco. (Chowhound.)

Hey y’all… don’t forget to weigh in on this week’s restaurant review before we go to press. We’ll choose some of your comments to include with the review in Wednesday’s paper: Spadaro in New Rochelle.
