Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
There's a reason Port Chester has achieved wide renown for its restaurant scene — the bustling enclave serves a seemingly infinite amount of world-class international cuisine you won't find anywhere else. In Port Chester, you're sure to find something to sate even the most discerning tastes.
The Kneaded Bread is a popular and cozy bakery, offering the most mouthwatering fresh-baked pastries, espresso drinks, and light delicatessen lunch fare to locals eager to enjoy the freshest possible baked goods. Another cherished local bakery is Neri's Bakery, a cash-only, family-run operation that shows its appreciation for the Port Chester community by providing the highest-quality baked goods at the finest price points possible.
Foodies will find exceptionally delightful Nuevo Latin fare at Sonora. Rafael Palomino's famous and festive tapas restaurant is incredibly innovative and serves up equally noteworthy cocktails. For unbeatable seafood, Saltaire Oyster Bar and Fish House is Port Chester's go-to spot for the freshest Atlantic catch of the day, all served in an ambitiously understated but upscale pub setting.
If nothing but the finest dining experience is on the agenda, you'll be exceptionally taken care of at Sergio's Saw Pit. The gourmet Italian restaurant is the perfect space for an impromptu special night out with your loved ones or to celebrate the latest occasion in style, and every item on its menu seems lovingly prepared as though for family.
Things to Do
Locals love the large number of food trucks that frequent Port Chester's parks and popular hangouts. They're sure to be out in force during one of Lyon Park's seasonal concerts in the parks, which fills the air with great music, good cheer, and the wafting scent of the most irresistible cuisine you won't find anywhere else.
For the biggest events, The Capital Theater is Port Chester's premier music venue, where the only thing bigger than the national acts it hosts are the larger-than-life acoustics of the 1920s architecture. If it's a more self-contained movie-night speed for you, you can see what's playing at the state-of-the-art AMC Multiplex, located at "the waterfront" shopping district.
Of course, no luxury community is complete without a spectacular range of natural amenities, and that's certainly true of Port Chester. Crawford Park is a uniquely inspired outdoor getaway, where 36 acres of open green space and lush wooded trails surround an idyllic and historic mansion estate. The area also hosts a playground and the occasional outdoor music event, and on the eastern edge is the movingly thoughtful Korean War Veterans Memorial.
Rye Town Park is another superb outdoor gathering area occupied by interesting and well-preserved historic structures — in this case, early 1900s Spanish-style architecture with an almost castle-like flair. The park itself connects to a massive strip of community beaches, complete with on-duty lifeguards and a family-friendly atmosphere. For the perfect wind down, make your way to the Barley Beach House, where you can enjoy the sunset with your drink and fresh-caught comfort seafood of your choice — the perfect way to end a well-spent day in Port Chester.
