La Panetière of Rye Lauded in The New York Times

La_panetiere_2Rye’s La Panetière restaurant on Milton Road pulled an "Excellent" review from the Westchester section of this past Sunday’s New York Times. Even the regional section of the Times is stingy with its best rating, so La Panetière owner Jacques Loupiac should be pleased with yet another rave review:

"In this area of noisy restaurants, La Panetière offers an oasis: a hushed dining room with well-spaced tables at which diners can have and hear their own conversation. Then there’s the food: most of it carefully crafted, delicious and presented with, well, panache."

The Times review reports the lavish French restaurant has toned down the heft of its French fare including use of small plates and the acknowledgment of various America ingredients. It reports the crowd ranges from dating couples (he must like you) to seniors (he still likes you).

La_panetiere_tableLa Panetière already rates a "27" of 30 food rating from Zagat.com, with only one restaurant in Westchester pulling a 28 for food (Sushi Nanase in White Plains) and six others pulling the same rating. The Zagat review is no less flowery:

"“When you can’t get to Paris”, a “remarkable meal” awaits at this Rye “grandmother of elegant French restaurants” that’s “beautifully furnished” to resemble a Provençal country inn; owner Jacques Loupiac “oversees every detail”, from the staff that “caters to every whim” to the “superb” fare and “voluminous” wine list; N.B. jacket required."
