Lexington Square Cafe in Mount Kisco: Hudson Valley Restaurant Week 2011


Hi, it’s Kat McKee, food-loving guest blogger for Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, reporting in for Lexington Square Cafe in Mount Kisco.  Their lunch menu is so well rounded, and their food and service are so consistently fabulous, that I can hardly believe that I get to blog about this restaurant!

For Act 1 my friend and I were adeptly served and shared Grilled Bruschetta with Vermont Chevre & Oven Dried Tomatoes & Green Olive Tapenade & Pesto Aioli, and also the Mixed Greens Salad with Wild Mushrooms, Cannellini Beans, Oven Dried Tomatoes & Lemon Herb Dijon Vinaigrette.  What a symphony of textures, flavors and freshness!  The server timed the delivery so well, and the staff paid just the right amount of attention to us.  But most importantly, you can practically taste how delicious the appetizers are from the photos:

We confused ourselves over the special menu, and when we asked, “What happened to our soup?”, the server skillfully delivered a sample of the spicy butternut squash soup to our table. It was another melody of sensations – the sweet but spicy soup was perfect.  I think we may have to return to Lexington Square Cafe for another lunch!  The photo doesn’t do it justice, but here is the Spicy Butternut Squash Soup:

For the 2nd Act, we both ordered the Grilled Filet Mignon Wrap after requesting advice from the server.  What great advice it was!  I got mine just how I like it – medium rare and so tender.  The wrap was a very healthy serving size of Lettuce, Tomatoes, Crispy Onions, melted Brie, Horseradish Mayo & Pomme Frites.  I just wish I could have eaten all of it!

Lexington Square Cafe also is offering two other main course choices for Hudson Valley Restaurant Week this year.  Both of us enjoy a hearty steak, but the other entree choices are certainly delicious:  Blackened Tilapia Filet with Baby Arugula, Sweet Corn Salsa, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Red Onions and Toasted Pecans tossed in a Siracha Vinaigrette, AND Chicken Stir-Fry with Peppers, Onions, Broccoli in Hoisin Ginger Sauce with Jasmine Rice topped with Toasted Cashews!

We did find a little room for the desserts.  We enjoyed the Apple Cranberry Crisp with Vanilla Ice Cream & Creme Anglaise:

and also the Chocolate Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream & Chocolate Sauce:

Getting the three (1/2) courses at Lexington Square Cafe for a heavenly lunch was a treat.  I feel lucky that it is located in Mount Kisco and offers such experienced service with consistently delicious and fresh food.  Even the coffee is always really good!

I have to go enjoy the other guest blogers’ photos and mouth watering descriptions!

  1. On the dessert was that a flame shaped cookie? Looks so amazing… great review. I always forget that it is nearby and very good. Thanks for the reminder.
