Maria Restaurant
As an homage to their mother, at Maria Restaurant, the old meets new Italian cuisine is enjoyed in an industrial modern farmhouse space with massive chandeliers, striking sapphire blue banquettes against whitewashed 100-year-old brick walls with hardwood floors, and a comfortable 14-seat white quartz bar. Being named Westchester Magazine’s Best New Restaurant in 2019, followed by MICHELIN awards in 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023, would make mom proud.
