Accepted/Not Necessary


A Katonah Avenue stalwart, Rambling House offers a soup-to-nuts dining experience and acts as a giant social hub. The menu covers Irish classics, like rich and flavorful shepherd’s pie and corned beef and cabbage, along with American-style steak, fish, and chicken dishes. This is not a kitchen that prioritizes healthy preps or nouveau presentations; entrées are traditional and heavy on the plate (steak cooked in garlic butter comes piled with mushrooms and onions). Action shots of rugby, hockey and baseball players decorate the over 5,000-square-foot space; a sepia-toned mural depicts a cobblestone street scene of Irish immigrants’ Olde New York, complete with Lady Liberty. Dark wood polished tables and forest-green walls give the room a formal feel, but there’s rec-room balance on the other side of a partitioned windowed wall, in the massive, TV- and booth-lined bar. The steady after-work bar scene draws local employees, but guests—sometimes from as far afield as Long Island and Westchester—drop by on weekends.
