At almost 15 years old, The Cookery in Dobbs Ferry is like a punk rock band that’s gone mainstream. It still feels a little rebellious, even though everyone loves it by now. The menu is a mashup of gastropub and Italian, but really, they just lean into anything salty or fatty. The housemade pastas are great, there’s a whole pig dinner if your group is feeling primal, and somehow, dishes like duck liver cannoli with smoked cabbage marmellata make perfect sense. So settle in for some hip-hop and a strong drink, and worry about your cholesterol another time.
