My blog about "Some of the Best Restaurants in Brewster, Mahopac, Carmel, and Pawling New York" got a ton of hits on the I-95 FB Page thanks to all you guys!

It only makes sense to write a follow-up because they are so many excellent eateries in Dutchess and Putnam counties in NYS, so here goes:

  • 1

    Brewster - "The Clocktower Grill"

    The Clocktower Grill in Brewster is rated the #2 restaurant in Brewster but it's not in the best location. Located behind a bank and a tanning salon, it may be hard to find but is worth finding! Customers rave about the attentive service, the craft cocktails, and the delicious fish entrees.

    North Salem - "Purdy's Farmer & The Fish"

    Purdy's Farmer & The Fish is rated the #1 restaurant in North Salem where customers rave about the 30 different kinds of oysters. This is a "farm to table" restaurant and the same goes for the fish. Many of the reviews sing the praises of having the best fish they've ever tasted!
