In the mood for a twist on the classic? Westchester is filled to the brim with options that shake and stir up the original.
NoMa Social, New Rochelle
With 35 martini choices—including 10 with less than 150 calories—it’s hard to pick just one, especially when the menu entices you with frivolous names like Panties Off (Stoli Razberi, triple sec, cranberry juice, lemon-lime soda, melon liqueur, fresh raspberries); No Gym Tomorrow (Absolut Citron, club soda, pomegranate juice, açai juice, lime juice, and fresh blueberries); and Confirmed Bachelor (Tanqueray gin, triple sec, fresh-squeezed lemon juice). In the mood for something that tastes like the air on the Amalfi Coast? Order the Mediterranean (Bombay Sapphire gin, rosemary-infused simple syrup, fresh-squeezed lemon juice, dried cranberries, a sprig of rosemary, and a lemon wheel), with its herb-infused citrus flavor. If you don’t like it, no worries: There are 34 more to choose from. Even better—there are daily martini specials, as well as Ladies’ Nights with half-price martinis on Thursdays.
