Sammy's Downtown Bistro in Bronxville

We were lucky to get a last-minute reservation at Sammy’s Downtown Bistro and Bar in Bronxville on a chilly winter night.  Not knowing much about the restaurant, everyone in my party was pleasantly surprised by the warm ambience. The dining room was cozy and welcoming, but spacious enough to accommodate larger parties.

Looking around you couldn’t help but notice the enormous oil paintings of voluptuous nudes. Anyone familiar with Rosie’s, another Bronxville landmark, will recognize the artwork, apparently on loan from a Long Island gallery. The wine list was suburb as was the Juliena’s Beaujolais we chose. However, deciding what to eat from the lengthy menu proved challenging, as so many of the offerings sounded appealing.

Appetizers include innovative salads, fromage fritters, crab cakes, tuna tartar, soups and more.  When the first courses arrived, we realized that we should have opted to share the entrée-sized plates. Pomme salad, which was chopped iceberg with honey, Gorgonzola, apples, white raisins, and pecans, was fresh and delicious as was the fromage fritter and the saucisse -- grilled veal sausage, with mixed greens and lentil salad.

Next we were faced with working our way through the entrees – a rack of lamb with butternut squash was rich and perfectly done. Veal martini that included asparagus and creamy potatoes and the sea bass with orange and macadamia nuts, accompanied by risotto were specials that were indeed special.

How we found room for dessert is beyond me. But the chocolate ganache, a chocolate cake round filled with creamy ganache, served with a dollop of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream, was irresistible.  And if that wasn’t enough, the carrot cake with cream cheese frosting was a winner.

Service was prompt but not rushed. Our friendly waiter was happy to make recommendations for our meal. If you’re thinking of going on a weekend, do make a reservation as the place is bustling.
