A Medley of Flavors in the Old-World Style

A Review of the Cookery, in Dobbs Ferry

The Cookery is one of those great little restaurants around the corner, treasured by its neighbors and by those outsiders lucky enough to be in the know. To the eye, the Cookery may seem unprepossessing. Its interior has a quaintly unfinished feeling, with dark wood tables and trim, like an old-fashioned bar. Charming votives and a mural of a big, round pig brighten the room. The mixture is odd, but the atmosphere is not what matters here.

"These dishes suggest a rich Italian family tradition behind the restaurant, home cooking at its very best and most loving.'"
