Restaurant 121 has undergone a makeover with stellar results



Restaurant 121 has been a dependable dining option for years. Set in the center of horse country, of Route 121 in North Salem, it is housed in a rustic stand-alone building with a wrap-around porch.

This spring 121 closed for a six-week renovation and re-opened just before Mother’s Day. And it is a remarkable transformation. The exterior was spruced up and the interior got a sleek and elegant design. There are two significant layout changes. The lower former private-party room is now embraced by the main restaurant and is its own stylish space (pictured). Second, there are no longer dining tables in the bar area—once a popular option for a quick and casual bite.

The menu is the real star of the makeover—offering small- and large-plate options under the categories of vegetable, fish, and meat. Some standouts: charred cauliflower and a superb charred mango salad; sweet chili shrimp and cheddar grits as a small fish plate, and arctic char and snapper as large plates; for meats, there is a small plate of lamb riblets and large plates include duck breast, smoked squab, and a hangar steak chimichurri.

The most expensive food item is the diver scallops at $25, while the other large dishes are $14 to $23 and the small plates almost half that. 

Restaurant 121  2 Dingle Ridge Rd., 914-669-0121  M-E
