Hacienda la Paloma, Mount Kisco


Victor Ruiz, owner of Hacienda la Paloma restaurant in Mount Kisco, says at his newly opened resaurant he’s serving “upscale Mexican cuisine.” And he says he can’t wait for customers to see the restaurant’s décor, which includes Spanish tile, a water fountain, a palm tree, and a patio for outdoor dining.

But the most important feature??The food! “We bring Mexican food up to date,” Ruiz says, adding that all sauces are fresh and made from scratch. “It’s the new Mexican way of cooking.” In addition to dinner (entrees range from $14.95 to $19.95), the restaurant serves lunch during the week and brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. There’s also a full bar serving “the best margaritas and mojitos around,” Ruiz says. — Latoya West
