IRVINGTON

CHUTNEY MASALA

4 West Main Street, Irvington, NY 10533

"Great food begins with the finest ingredients and we use only the freshest and most wholesome with no artificial flavorings or additives.  "Chutney", an anglicized form of the Hindi word "chatni", is a traditional condiment made from a combination of fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices.

All or our chutneys are homemade.  "Masala" means a blend of fresh herbs and spices combined with aromatics used to create a unique base for each dish.  We use special blends of spices, which we grind ourselves, not to make the dishes hot, but to bring out their complex flavors.

To ensure our cuisine is as healthy as it is delicious we cook our meat, fish, vegetables and bread in a Tandoor Clay oven.  The result: food that is moist and tender and infused with a wonderful, freshly baked and grilled flavor.  We use all natural, free range meat that contains no antibiotics or homones, the seafood is wild, not farm raised, and the locally-driven produce is garden-fresh."

TAVERN ON MAIN STREET

Creaky wood plank floors, three brick fireplaces, dark wood furnishings and large windows that frame the downtown panorama complete the rustic appeal of the restaurant. The outdoor patio remains the most desirable venue in town for lazy lunches, romantic dinners, and people watching while enjoying the cool summertime breeze."
