Where to Eat in Peekskill

Peekskill has developed a reputation for being a foodie haven, but that doesn’t mean anything too staid or serious. The village’s restaurants mostly have a laid-back vibe, perfect for a relaxing dinner for two or a get-together with friends. 

The name is a little misleading: Taco Dive Bar isn’t a dive at all. Done up in primary colors, this eye-popping space is where Chef Louis Lanza rethinks this humble staple of Tex-Mex cuisine. Traditional favorites include braised pork and blackened mahi-mahi, although we also love the portobello mushroom and goat cheese with white truffle vinaigrette. Overlooking the Hudson River, the breezy patio is a great spot for a frozen sangria.

Voted among the area’s best restaurants by Westchester Magazine, the Fin & Brew could win awards just for its location on Lents Cove. The view of the Hudson River, from the open and airy dining room or the umbrella-shaded deck, is a knockout. So is the menu, which changes frequently but always features seafood. It’s also a great option for vegetarians and vegans.

In the downtown district, Iron Vine has so many tapas on its menu that you might have a tough time making a decision. Here are a few suggestions: Start with the Patatas Bravas (crispy roasted potatoes served with garlic aioli), then move on to the Chorizo en Cazuela (sausage, dates, and fennel simmered in red wine). Wash it all down with a passionfruit margarita.
