Let's head to one of the best places in Westchester - X2O - Xaviers on the Hudson in Yonkers, on Thursday November 15th to take advantage of HV Restaurant Week - 3 courses for $29.95 plus tax, tip, and drinks. Please arrive around 5:30 -- we'll meet in the bar, and be seated at 6pm.
X2O Xaviars on the Hudson is Peter X Kelly’s latest addition to the Xaviars Restaurant Group. It sits in the water on the only turn of the century Victorian pier still in use on the Hudson River. X2O’s Main Dining Salon’s 25 foot vaulted ceiling and 3 walls of glass frame offers views of the George Washington and Tappan Zee Bridges, as well as sunsets over the Palisades. Guests encounter dishes incorporating classic French technique with Italian and Spanish influences, and Asian embellishments which create a wholly original cuisine unique to the Hudson Valley.
The Dylan Lounge is a vibrant, up-tempo space with a sophisticated and playful bent that offers guests more dining options. Guests are invited to sample a variety of small plates and sushi, while dining at the Communal Table, sushi bar, or at traditional banquette and table seating.
We've gone here a few times and every year the food is just spectacular, as is the view from the dining room... If you've not gone -- check out their website for menu, directions, photos, etc - http://www.xaviars.com/restaurants/xaviars-x20-on-the-hudson/entrees-at-x20/

AS OF TODAY WE ONLY HAVE 8 PEOPLE SIGNED UP FOR THIS EVENT, SO I HAVE RELEASED THE OTHER TABLE SO OTHERS CAN GO TO THIS RESTAURANT.

After the event I"ll refund $2.50 and keep the $2 as my fee, and paypal will keep their $.50. If you do not show up, or change your rsvp with three days of the event, then I get to keep the money - as it was VERY difficult to get this reservation, and I cannot afford to have no shows during Restaurant Week. I hope you understand! :)
