“Amour” is in the Air within Minutes of Your Castle Apartment!

Posted by editor on 02/13/19

Are you thinking of taking your sweetheart out for Valentine’s Day? February, known as the month of love, often has us thinking of the French who are known for their fabulous cuisine. The French culture exudes romance in so many ways or maybe it is just the wine talking!

Here are a few local restaurants to check out not just for romance on Valentine’s Day but for their fantastic execution of French cuisine.

La Panetiere has been an institution here in Westchester for many years perfecting the gourmet experience of Provence. Known to be “quintessential French” in both food and service they aim to please. They have educated many generations on French cuisine in their beautiful Rye location. A dinner tasting menu features specifically selected wines that pair with beautiful duck, cheese, and soufflé courses.

Appetit Bistro will surprise you as it is a petite French hideaway. Dimly lit creating a cozy atmosphere it is a hidden gem just minutes from your luxurious Castle apartment. Watch chef prepare in the open kitchen as you enjoy a farmer’s platter made for two with an assortment of French charcuterie, cheese and classic house-made savory pâtés. Try a glass of Sancerre – Roche des Lumiéres from Loire, France. There is nothing more romantic than dipping into a cheese fondue for two. Escargot en croute is a specialty of the house. Say no more, if you feel like dining in the privacy of your luxurious apartment, they will deliver to your door.

Capers Restaurant locally known for its Sunday-Thursday, three-course prix fix for just forty dollars is a sure bet. A short walking distance from your apartment makes Monday night 1/2 price bottles of wine even more appealing. Many dishes are French inspired such as the foie gras dumplings served with a Perigord black truffle reduction. For dessert, why not try their luscious chocolate mousse. Go ahead – you can work it off later in The Castle state-of-the-art gym!

Le grand amour – true love!
