Sweetgrass Grill

It's always nice to get out of the city for an afternoon and most often I visit the quaint, little town of Tarrytown for a gorgeous view of the Hudson River and a delicious meal.  This time I met my friend Carrie and we stopped into Sweetgrass Grill where I had an absolutely incredible salad.

Big fluffy shards of kale with juicy orange segments, pickled onions, warm toasted almonds and covered in a creamy cashew truffle dressing.  This was such an awesome salad- it was really hearty, super healthy and just delicious.  I wanted to ask for some of that cashew nut dressing to go!  

Carrie's Open-Faced Tempeh Reuban came covered in Daiya Cheddar, House-made Kraut and a Vegan Russian Dressing that was also incredible.  I really can't remember a time when we both enjoyed food like this so much.  Granted we usually meet up for a huge plate of ribs at Dinosaur BBQ but I still think it was the fact that everything tasted so fresh.

Sweetgrass is known for their local, seasonal ingredients which is quite evident by the listing of farms they have on the wall.  The drink menu sticks to the same local philosophy boasting a number of local brews like Captain Lawrence, Peekskill and even a Yonkers Pale Ale.  It's a great place to kick back and relax for an afternoon of catching up and fresh food right from the farm.
