La Panetière, located in lower Westchester County, was opened in 1985. The structure of the building dates back to the 1800's and was the home of a ship builder.
The restaurant's ambiance and decor focuses entirely on "Provence": this part of the world thought after for its typical folklore. Therefore you will notice that from furniture to china to terra cotta to santons all come from this area epitomized by a "Panetière" (the bread cabinet) symbolizing a warm house welcome.
The cuisine is contemporary french, and the dishes change with the season reflecting upon products purchased from market-gardeners, fishermen, free-range poultry farmers, and other purveyors who deserve the respect of their authentic products.
The dining room on the first floor is separated by hand-painted fresco arches, supported by original beams, and furnished with a working buffet, paintings, and tapestries giving it the feel of an Auberge.
The second floor dining room has been built with a greenhouse effect, giving it a feeling of open spaciousness. This room is mostly used for private parties and can accommodate up to 50 persons. There is also on the same floor a smaller private room that can accommodate up to 16 persons.
