Peekamoose Restaurant-NY

Peekamoose Restaurant

Big Indian, NY 12410

As seen on

Owners Devin and Marybeth Mills have worked in some of New York City's finest restaurants( the Hudson River Club, Picholine, Le Bernadin, Guastavino's, Atlantic Grill, Remi Restaurant, and the famed Gramercy Tavern). They purchased an old run down building in the middle of nowhere and started their own locally grown/locally sourced restaurant to compete with any NYC eatery. I was really impressed. Located right on the banks of the Esopous Creek, were the freshest fly caught trout in the world comes from. They even have their own chicken coops to get their eggs. Always local and always fresh.

This restaurant is really cool. They have an amazing childrens room and off  the bar is a fire pit with free make your own smores. The bar has a different menu then the restaurant but they let us order off of both. Among the food ordered at our table I sampled  were onion rings, endive salad, short ribs, trout, hamburgers, goat cheese gnocchi, and pumpkin bread pudding. The onion rings were by far the best I've ever had anywhere and the hamburger too. Ive had designer burgers all over Manhattan and they cant compare to this deliciousness. Everything was well thought out and presented as if we were dining on the upper east side. Really a first class establishment. Closest thing around here to dining in Manhattan.
