Date Night Restaurant Guide

We feel lucky to live in Westchester County, where there are many options for awesome date nights. But sometimes, the sheer number of places to go can be overwhelming. Often, we end up sticking to the same old places. We have compiled a list of our favorite local date night restaurants. As always, please support our sponsors! Enjoy!


La Cremaillere
La Cremaillere is a romantic destination restaurant nestled in an original 1750 farmhouse. They serve only the finest local and seasonal ingredients and feature a menu that frequently changes, carefully curated by Chef Thomas Burke. They serve dinner Wednesday-Sunday, as well as lunch on Saturdays and Sundays.


The Thorn
The Mediterranean is known for its vibrant flowers and medieval waterfront castles. In arriving at the restaurant’s name, the owners wanted to incorporate old-time history and florals into a name with a more significant meaning. The Thorn, which plays off the town’s name Thornwood, perfectly represents the lyrics “every rose has its thorn.” They want people to walk in and be taken away by what they see, that an exterior thorn can be accompanied by interior beauty.


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, and 2022, would make mom proud.
