outdoors-with-sign800

This review is the first of two of the food at RiverMarket Bar And Kitchen in Tarrytown, New York, and a tasty one at that; ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to their Lamb Sliders.

Served on a soft brioche bun, these patties (Sir William Farm Hudson Valley lamb) were comprised of some of the most tender and sweet lamb meat I have ever had. Along with a small amount of lettuce for an added cool crunch, was a juicy tomato and some nice house-made focaccia, accentuated by a delicious spring onion pesto, and mint yogurt sauce.

There is not much size to either slider, but that is perfectly acceptable for an appetizer, allowing me to leave room for my main course, while leaving me wanting more of this delicious dish.

This is truly a great appetizer and I look forward to having it again in the near future.

KEE Oyster House: Baked Clam and Rack of Lamb

258s

 

KEE Oyster house is a recently opened sea-food joint in White Plains dedicated to honoring and reviving New York’s great oyster legacy; having heard about it through work, I decided to check the place out when my friend came down from New Hampshire to visit.

I must note that I am not really a sea-food guy at all, so in most cases I would avoid a place like this – but fortunately, they also have a good, albeit rather expensive land menu as well. Another note I must make is that my friend did try out their oyster selection and he loved it, so take from that what you will.

Side Dish: Roasted Cauliflower & Brie

This was everything a roasted cauliflower should be; it was flavorful, had a healthy crunch and the Brie cheese was sweet and thick where it needed to be. Not much else need be said about it except that you should try it on your next visit.

Appetizer: Baked Clams

As I said at the outset, I am not that big a fan of sea-food, but baked clams is one noticeable exception.

These clams were very good, the meat was sweet and juicy, and the breading provided a nice, slightly rough texture. Along with a buttery sauce, these clams left me wanting more.

Entree: Rack of Lamb

This lamb was simply beautiful – the meat was cooked to perfection, an amazingly tender, juicy and rare consistency – unlike any lamb I or my friend had ever seen. Just look at how beautifully red the meat is.

It’s flavor was very good, sweet and delectable. But one of the most interesting things about it was the coating that was applied to it – reminiscent of a citrus infused panko crust that was delicious and unlike anything I’ve ever had before.

This meal was truly fantastic, and assuredly worth the price for the food and the experience – make no mistake that KEE is a high class restaurant and the food does not come cheaply, but they for sure make some of the best tasting food in Westchester County (which is saying a lot).
