Hop into a car (or borrow one from a friend) and head up to Westchester for your next swank night out. We know what you're thinking...please. But, really, Purdy's Homestead is that good. Opened by husband and wife team, Charles and Maureen Steppe, the restaurant is situated in an old farmhouse and welcomes visitors through an old porch and into a cozy fireplace-lit bar area.
With three dining rooms, you might feel like you're the only one in the place and want to slip off your shoes to stroll around on the worn, wide-planked hardwood floors. The menu capitalizes on seasonal and sometimes locally-grown specialties, and paired wines to match can always be ordered. The twosome has been a featured "Couples Who Cook" pair by the James Beard House as well.
