For a casual low key dining experience Muscoot Tavern in Somers, NY is a must try. The ingredients are fresh and locally sourced and the menu is best described as New American with an Italian flair.
The building housing the Muscoot Tavern has been around since the 1920s and the low entrance door, and antique wooden phone booth are evidence of the history of this building. Its rustic interior and uneven floors are part of its overall charm. The current owners of Muscoot has taken the establishment to a new level with top quality food and interesting menu selections . This is fun place to dine whether it is a family night out, date night or eating with a group of friends. There is outside dining, horseshoes, and even a bocce court. There is a small stage in the backyard for bands to play on Sundays.
The bar offers fun drink specials such as the delicious White Sangria and the Muscoot Mule which is made with Tito’s Homemade Vodka, ginger beer, and muddled limes. This was a light and refreshing cocktail.
Starters: we ordered the Burrata cheese and found it fresh and tasty. This mozzarella was pared with jam, roasted peppers, prosciutto, and olives with a balsamic drizzle. A great summertime pick. The clams casino was recommended by the staff and was so good I would definitely order this again. The clams were prepared with a subtle blend of aromatic herbs, garlic and bacon. A great choice.
The Main Course: I ordered the Wild Sesame Salmon special with teriyaki glaze with rice and sautéed spinach. This was suggested by my friendly waitress and it did not disappoint. The fresh fish was perfectly cooked and the glaze complimented the salmon.
Another entree enjoyed at our table was the Lobster ravioli. Fresh pasta squares filled with large pieces of lobster meat and was complimented by a sherry wine cream sauce. A true comfort food dish and quite filling.
There are a variety of 14 inch thin crust pizzas that we did not sample but seemed popular with other diners.
Dessert: don’t forget to try the homemade desserts. The bread pudding topped with crème anglaise is sweet , light tasting and was filling enough to be shared. We also tasted the Mango crème brulee which was a nice variation of this classic dessert. The perfect way to end a lovely meal.
Muscoot Tavern is a great choice for a night out of good food and fun, and is casual dining at its best.
