Esquire’s checklist of “Best New Eating places 2020” is out — yes, in spite of the pandemic — and incorporates two Westchester restaurants.
The 12 months-old Goosefeather in the Tarrytown Estate on the Hudson in Tarrytown was on the listing as was Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills as best “restaurant reinvention of calendar year.”
Esquire’s Jeff Gordinier noted that Goosefeather chef Dale Talde’s menu finds its core inspiration from the delicacies of Hong Kong, but “is shaken up with all kinds of farm-to-tabley and pub-grubish twists: ribs of sweet summer time corn dusted with Chinese 5-spice powder, kung pao chicken wings that you dunk in a tub of buttermilk ranch, crab rice which is received much more layers than a Christopher Nolan motion picture.”
Goosefeather opened in September 2019.
Talde said the nomination was a vivid place for the duration of a calendar year that’s been a struggle for the field.
“Agnes [his wife and business partner] and I are really honored to be incorporated in this year’s class of Greatest New Dining establishments,” said Talde. ” We want to thank “Esquire” and Jeff Gordinier, and most importantly our staff who make it all happen, and our company who have been supporting us from day a single, even as a result of this genuinely hard and demanding yr. We are optimistic and psyched for the new yr and the new activations and programming we will increase to the Tarrytown Dwelling Estate assets.”
As for Blue Hill, Gordinier offers kudos to founder and chef Dan Barber and his Michelin-starred team who innovated during the pandemic, giving outside “picnic” dinners at the cafe.
Blue Hill provided “museum-worthy boxes of berries and bouquets … that gave individuals a moment to relish foodstuff and serenity in clean air,” Gordinier wrote, as perfectly as for the final decision by Barber to surrender his role in the kitchen in 2021 “so that a various lineup of chefs from all around the planet can have accessibility to the means of Stone Barns and hook up with a wider viewers.”
Barber introduced in August that Blue Hill would be pivoting to a chef-in-home application beginning in 2021.
