Food: Juniper

Ratings are out of 20
Restaurant:  Juniper
Location:  575 Warburton Avenue, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY
Type: New American
What to get:  The soups they have for appetizers are absolutely fantastic.  Today I had the cream broccoli soup, and it could not have been better.  I also recommend the brisket burger, which I have had before, which is fantastic.  Similar to the cookery, just less choices and not quite as good pasta.
Food: 9/10
Service: 8/10
Overall Experience: 17/20
Juniper reminds me of the Cookery, serving a similar style of food.  In fact, when I was there I overheard the waiters talking about going to the Cookery on their off-day!  At Juniper, they have a nice open kitchen, where you can see right in front of your eyes where your meal is.  The servers are very emphatic and know all the dishes they serve.  Juniper has a modern, open look that lets all the light into the restaurant.  It is very casual, and expect to be able to walk into the restaurant with any part of your wardrobe.

Notes:  Juniper is the only restaurant I have tried and enjoyed in Hastings (I have not been to Buffet de la gare).  If you like the Cookery, you will most likely enjoy Juniper.
