Food Buzz: Reviews of 12 Grapes and Q

Three weeks ago I did a Food Buzz post on a few new restaurants in the area. Sunday's New York Times caught up with reviews of two of them. 12 Grapes Music and Wine Bar, in Peekskill, got a "Good" rating, with the reviewer expressing surprise at the quality of the food given that it is a "music spot." Standouts include rum-glazed shrimp, mushroom ravioli, flatbread pizza Margarita, miso-glazed black cod, breast of duck, pork tenderloin, and blackberry cabernet sorbet. A review of Q Restaurant and Bar in Mt. Kisco says the "ribs are king, but the excellent Texas brisket, pulled pork and barbecue chicken wings come nipping at their heels." The reviewer also raves about the pies.
