Sweet Grass of Tarrytown NY – a wonderful dining experience in one of my favorite villages

Sweet Grass of Tarrytown NYEvery once in a while its good to treat yourself.  A friend of mine, Janet, came up from the city one night a few weeks ago to enjoy a some village life in Tarrytown NY.  She was on her way back from a trip across the Tappan Zee bridge – so the location was perfect for both of us.  We decided to try our luck at Sweet Grass Grill – which has gotten a lot of buzz as one of the best restaurants in Westchester since it was opened by David Starkey a little over a year ago.  There are quite a few fine Tarrytown restaurants, but few had such consistently fine feedback.

The atmosphere is informal and in keeping with the turn-of-the century flair of Tarrytown’s Main Street.  The paintings and facade reflect the artistic nature of the village perfectly.   Dining outside is terrific, but on that evening it was actually quite warm so air conditioning won over the great outdoors.

The restaurant offers a seasonal menu and uses as much locally grown produce as  is possible.

Janet enjoyed the lamb cooked two ways.  A shoulder which which was actually ground up like a meat ball and a braised loin. They  were accompanied by a spicy carrot sauce that includes carrots currents and chives.  Added to the dish are lentils Twhich she told me really added flair and flavor.  Janet is a true foodie and a great cook in her own right  – so for her to be duly pleased is impressive.

 

Yours truly had a yen for a burger. I rarely eat red meat  – perhaps once every other month -  but that night I had a craving for one.  The burger was done to my instructions – medium and was lean and fresh.  The greens that came with it were fabulous.

After our meal, we could easily see how Sweet Grass  was voted one of Westchester Magazine’s top new restaurants in early 2010.  It truly has earned a place as one of the best restaurants  in Tarrytown.  It takes courage to open a restaurant in the middle of a major recession, but this one has what it takes to attract many a hungry patron.  I wish them the best of luck and will be returning there for seconds.

Hi Jim,

Red meat isn't that great for you - but this was very lean and the last time I had had red meat was Memorial Day....so every once in a while it should be OK....

Sounds great.  I will need to check it out.  I love restaurants where you can eat outdoors.  Weather is perfect now (but earlier in summer way too hot - almost unbearable).

Hi Debbie,

We did this earlier in the summer.  I had to think back on what we had to eat.  Janet being the foodie that she is recalled the whole thing in an email.  Although I like good food, I'm more of a "live to eat" kind of person.  I enjoy food, but I don't have the love of it that she does.  If it had been a bad meal - she would have said so.  Not cheap though - but worth it for a special treat.  I'm doing these ever six weeks or so for the blog. I can't afford any more...

I use my canon digital rebel - I often use a 10-22 mm wide angle which is great for landscapes and tight spaces where you want a whole room.  As for the graphics I load the photos onto picnik.com.  They have a premium which is (I think $25/year) or you can try and use what they offer for free.  Check it out.
