Last week, my family went out for a normal dinner. Or was it? It was Hudson Valley Restaurant Week! Restaurant Week is when restaurants have lower prices for an appetizer, entree, and dessert. We went to Crabtree Kittle House in Chappaqua. The restaurant was in an old white house that looked like a church. It is probably one of the fanciest places in Westchester. When we walked in, we found our seats at a table near the window. When I looked at the Restaurant Week menu, I knew what I wanted to order. But before the food came, the waiter brought out an amuse bouche. That is a little dish that you get for free. It's only meant to be one bite like on The Taste. It was actually in a spoon just like on the show. It was a potato foam with bacon. I didn't really like it because the bacon didn't really go well with the foamy potatoes. For the appetizer, I ordered Corn and Peeky Toe Crab Chowder with truffled crab salad. It was creamy and I could really taste the crab. For the entree, I had grilled skirt steak with braised spinach and roasted hudson valley peanut potatoes. They were called peanut potatoes because they were almost the size of peanuts. The steak was juicy and tender and had a thin crust on the outside which made it crunchy. I like crunchy. The spinach didn't taste like regular spinach. It tasted creamy. For dessert, I had a wiggly, jiggly chocolate-banana panna cotta. I like panna cotta and this one was really chocolatey. I like chocolate but not too much chocolate. The banana in it made me feel relaxed. There was also a pastry on the plate that was almost like a churro. I had a really good experience here. I would go back for Restaurant Week.
