There’s a new restaurant in Mt.Kisco that really has been getting quite the buzz. Kisco River Eatery is a classic American restaurant with an Italian twist.
This warm and comfortable restaurant features lovely traditional fixtures, a stone fireplace with timber mantle, vintage photos and prints, and a dark wood bar. The lighting is soft and gentle and casts a warm and comfortable glow which helps sets the mood for the evening. The bar is a great place for a pre dinner drink or just to gather with friends. There are some interesting cocktails available.
First course: There is a perfect selection of appetizers to try. A standout is the Eggplant Stack, with fresh mozzarella, plum tomatoes, arugula, shaved parmesan, aged balsamic glaze and extra virgin olive oil. This dish is a delightful blend of crispy eggplant, fresh soft cheese, and spices. This appetizer is perfect for one or makes a nice option to share. This dish is a hit and should be sampled.
If soup is something you enjoy, a wonderful choice is the Montauk Fish Soup. The presentation of this dish delightful with a large bowl of fresh clams, shrimp, halibut, and mussels on top of a very tasty saffron cream broth. I absolutely loved this dish, and if you love seafood, you will as well.

Main Course: There are some excellent entree selections on the menu. I opted for the Sea Scallops, pan seared in a white wine butter sauce with sauteed spinach and mashed potatoes. I really enjoyed the delicate taste of fresh scallops complimented by the velvety sauce.

I also tasted the pan seared Halibut with Quinoa and apple salad served over a butternut squash puree. The fish is as fresh as it gets with and the mild taste of halibut is enhanced by the interesting blend of other ingredients in the entire dish. A great selection and again a nice presentation. There is something for every taste on the menu including seafood, steaks,ribs, chicken and Italian favorites.

Desserts: The desserts are all homemade and there are some of the usual favorites, including Cheese Cake, Tiramisu, Apple Blueberry Cobbler, Molten Chocolate Cake and Creme Brulee. I was able to sample some of these dishes including a Strawberry Crepe and all the desserts are a great way to round up your meal.
Kisco River Eatery is a great new edition to the dining scene in Northern Westchester. It is the kind of restaurant where you feel instantly comfortable. With its combination of great food,cocktails, reasonable prices and comfy atmosphere, you will want to return again and again.
