Food Buzz: A Few New Places

Thai Angels While a number of pan-Asian restaurants have popped up in the last few years, it wasn't until Thai Angels opened in Mt. Kisco that the area had a true Thai restaurant. The New York Times reviewer says that the chicken satay "may be the best we've ever had," and also recommends the tom yum goong, tom kha gai, and green curry with shrimp, among other dishes. The posters on Chowhound all offer rave reviews. From my own experience, the food is extremely good, the ambiance is casual (and kid-friendly), and the staff is beyond friendly.

Q Authentic Barbecue Bar and Restaurant This branch of the popular Port Chester restaurant recently opened on East Main Street in Mt. Kisco. The menu features barbecue classic such as pulled pork and ribs, with desserts such as banana pudding. The restaurant hasn't been reviewed yet, but the posters on Chowhound are almost all positive--except for those that had long waits for take-out.

12 Grapes Music and Wine Bar The latest addition to Peekskill's North Division Street scene, this venue has live music every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The menu has everything from Mahi Mahi to rack of lamb. Chowhound posters range from the ecstatic to the disappointed.

Thai Angels is really great! It's the best thai food I've had in years, including in the city. I'm not into barbecue, but I'll have to check out the Peekskill place. Thanks!
