  • Celebrating 20 years of service

    He didn’t want a party because he prefers to fly under the radar, but when the surprise came, the Port Chester-Rye-Rye Brook EMS administrator took it with grace, a touch of shock, and a lot of joking.

Besides the pizzerias and Italian restaurants that also make pizza, the two Irish/American pub/restaurants—Davy Byrnes and McShane’s—are on that list as is The Clydesdale Pub & Grill—dubbed “an American bar & grill with an English twist”—and Härth in the Hilton Westchester. The latter two both have wood-burning ovens.
