La Panetière in Rye, NY is a French restaurant that offers traditional French cuisine. I was there with a large party of work friends to celebrate the holidays. A special menu was created for us. It was a delicious meal and a very happy time. Many thanks to Paul, George, Dan, Gary, Mike, Lori, and Jason.
SADDLE OF VENISON POIVRADE SAUCE: Compote of Rosemary-Granny Smith apple, crusted endives with cubes of ham and Swiss cheese. I loved this dish. I heart it whole-heartedly. I strongly persuaded two friends to change their orders from the Bronzino to the venison.
FRESH TAGLIATELLE: Mushrooms, primavaire of vegetables, parmesan. Unfortunately, this pasta dish seemed to have under-delivered. The general consensus is that it was just like any other pasta dish and why is La Panetière considered as one of Westchester’s best restaurants?
This is a trio of their house desserts. May I say that all three are pretty decent and more? I was extremely satisfied and happy with the chocolate mousse cake and the ice cream. The slice of Granny Smith apple really delivered the punch.
Overall, the experience was highly memorable. The food was delectable (if you stick to the authentic French creations and not the bland chicken or Italian pasta). The desserts were sweet and the high notes to end the meal. The wine parings were great. Highly recommend it.
Gary – thank you for letting me sample all your food. 🙂
Oh – the photos are all yellow-tinted because the room we were in was kind of yellow and the lights were yellow. 🙂
