The rivertowns are a hipster haven, and The Tapp in Tarrytown certainly attracts a crowd of flannel-wearing, bespectacled 30-somethings in search of a classic cocktail and a good bite to eat.
So when manager Jeremy McLellan opened The Mill, The Tapp’s sister restaurant in Hastings-on-Hudson, he expected similar customers.
They came, but surprisingly, he also found a new audience: a dinner crowd of soccer moms.
It is a testament to the type of menu he and chef Alexa Wilkinson have devised. “I wanted to cater to everyone,” Wilkinson says. “Whether you’re a pescatarian, vegetarian, or love a good steak — you can order something here and you’ll leave feeling full.”
While the menu will change seasonally, you can expect certain mainstays like burgers ($15), pizza (under $13) and wings ($7 to $14) to remain on the menu. Already a seasonal favorite? Hudson Valley pork — a generous chop topped with baked apple and braised red cabbage ($19). As a vegetable entree, there’s a burger made with whole grains and tofu for $12.
