Best known as the home of writer Washington Irving, the village of Tarrytown sits on the eastern shore of the Hudson River, approximately 25 miles north of Manhattan. Over 11,000 people call Tarrytown home, once named by Forbes magazine as one of America’s 10 prettiest towns, home. It has also been selected as one of the top places to live in New York State.
Legend has it that Tarrytown claims its name from the large number of husbands who “tarried” at the many taverns in town. At the turn of the 20th century, the village was dubbed “Millionaire’s Colony," as the Tarrytown skyline was lined with more than 65 grand estates. A few of these majestic homes, including those owned by John D. Rockefeller and Jay Gould, still stand today.
Sleepy Hollow, known as North Tarrytown until 1996, shares a school district and a zip code with Tarrytown.

The village of Tarrytown has a number of outstanding dining options no matter the budget or cuisine. At the top end of the spectrum, Equus houses Westchester’s most expensive à la carte menu. Located in the plush Castle on the Hudson hotel, the Zagat-rated, award-winning Equus presents creative Auberge-style French cuisine based on locally sourced ingredients. The unique and innovative seasonal menus feature dishes that include langoustine tempura with porcini and chestnut risotto, Long Island duck breast drizzled with cocoa flavored balsamic vinegar, and grilled marinated beef tenderloin accompanied by squash purée, polenta and figs.
A classic America tavern with a contemporary twist, Cellar 49 can be found on the grounds of the Tarrytown House Estate. The cozy and intimate setting in what was the cellar in the historic Biddle mansion, Cellar 49 has original granite columns, distressed wooden beams and key-stoned brick archways accented by a rich mahogany bar and a crackling fireplace. The main room seats only 36; the wine cellar, which features an extensive collection of unique vinos, has seating for an additional 10. The seasonal menu puts a modern spin on favorites that include a peach-glazed smoked pork chop, beef short ribs over mashed potatoes and scallops served with red lentils. Save room for the fun and innovative desserts, such as homemade potato doughnuts rolled in cinnamon sugar and chocolate-dipped cheesecake lollipops.
Huge portions and a friendly staff stand as just two of the reasons Lefteris Gyro shines as a neighborhood favorite, serving authentic Greek cuisine. The small space on North Broadway gets crowded often, but the restaurant has outdoor seating for the warmer months. Regulars rave about the moussaka, the tzatziki sauce and the gyros. Sweet and flaky, the baklava puts the finishing touch on a great meal.

An institution on Main Street since 1959, the Set Back Inn, reputed to be among the oldest bars in Westchester, has even been featured in a couple of major motion pictures, including Mona Lisa Smile with Julia Roberts. The “no-frills” feel of the place, complete with a pool table, dart board, jukebox and plenty of dark wood, makes it the perfect spot to hang out with friends while enjoying a domestic, imported or craft brew.
