Caravela in Tarrytown Celebrates its 25th Anniversary with $25 Meals


I got a nice note from Caravela in Tarrytown telling me about its 25th anniversary celebration on March 30. The restaurant is offering $25 prix fixe meals througout 2011 to celebrate. All the details in the note, after the jump.

The 411 on Caravela.

Caravela is now celebrating their 25th anniversary serving authentic Portuguese & Brazilian cuisine on North Broadway in Tarrytown. Family owned and operated, Fernando has watched as his customers twenty-five years ago are now coming back with their full grown children and in some cases grand children. “It’s truly wonderful to see families so loyal for so many years and it’s always been my pleasure to see them grow and serve them”, Fernando says. “It serves as an inspiration to do this another twenty five years!”

Over the years, Caravela has been preparing delicious dishes and providing great value. For their anniversary year, they have decided to go one step further and is now offering a $25 Complete Three Course Dinner including choice of appetizer, entrée & dessert, as their way of saying thanks. “We feel we must try to give back to our community and in these challenging times, we want to provide exceptional value and say thank you at the same time”. Guests can enjoy this special menu any day except Saturday. This Complete Dinner menu will run throughout the year and the menu items will change seasonally. Among the many dishes to choose from are cold seafood salad, steamed mussels, braised lamb, pan seared tilapia, veal stew & filet mignon. In addition to this menu, Caravela offers ala carte dining every night with wonderful selections including Mariscada Seafood Stew, Branzini, Loin of Veal & Roast Suckling Pig. The restaurant is also planning seasonal Wine Dinners, paring five wines with five courses which will start in April.

“It is very important to us and to our valued guests that we continue to be creative with our dishes, offer value and provide a good reason for them to enjoy our cuisine on a regular basis. We have served many loyal customers over the years and hope to continue for many more years to come. That is what makes this community so special, the relationships and being a part of it. This year is about saying thank you!”

If you have not had the pleasure of experiencing Caravela, we encourage you to stop in, say hello to Fernando and his staff and get ready to eat like kings and queens. Tarrytown is fortunate to have such a committed partner in our community and we wish them the best.
