New American Restaurant
$$$$
“Quick 18 minute drive. The Zagat-praised restaurant may pride itself on using local ingredients, but its menu draws on inspiration from around the globe. Various New American dishes mix Asian embellishments with Italian and Spanish touches and traditional French techniques. Thai barbecue, for example, spices the grilled portuguese octopus appetizer. An active turn-of-the-century Victorian pier hosts Xaviars' dining room on the Hudson River. Vaulted 25-foot ceilings take support from three walls of glass that grant sweeping views They offer amazing groupon deals that provide 50% off. Michelin comparable quality at a third of the price of Manhattan. Open for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch”
