One Twenty One Restaurant & Bar, serving globally inspired dishes with local and seasonal ingredients from Hudson Valley farmers and purveyors, is located at 2 Dingle Ridge Road at the corner of Route 121 & Dingle Ridge Road, North Salem NY 10560 in northern Westchester County.
From One Twenty One: "One Twenty One has been a cornerstone of the North Salem community since 2000. After 14 years of business and the return of former chef, Beck Bolender who recently honed his skills in New York City at Jean-Georges - owners Michele Savino and Peter DeVito were encouraged to take their already popular establishment to an even higher level of culinary excellence. With Beck Bolender at the helm, One Twenty One went through a dramatic redesign and reopened in May 2014, bringing a modern, affordable dining experience to North Salem. One Twenty One’s menu focuses on globally inspired dishes starring local and seasonal ingredients from Hudson Valley farmers and purveyors. A highlight of the dining experience is the option to share small plates within your party, selected from meat, fish and vegetable categories. Completing the dining experience are the reimagined wine, beer and cocktail menus, which have reached new creative heights but remain fun and unintimidating."
"A new spirit can be felt in the restaurant redesign: young and modern but with a relaxed, chic country atmosphere. An entirely new bar and lounge area invites guests to gather with friends; it’s a relaxed environment where one can enjoy the full One Twenty One menu – without the formalities. The main dining room marries country charm with a modern sensibility and features a grand window looking into a redesigned kitchen with wood-burning oven. The lower level contains a separate dining space, the Ridge Room, with sleek modern touches, perfect for private events. Whether dining for lunch, brunch, dinner, a special event or simply stopping by the new bar and lounge, the team at One Twenty One looks forward to seeing you very soon."

The word is
Established restaurant sporting a new contemporary design, and higher prices, where a less than professional wait staff serves dishes that vary from delicious to just ok; and although local purveyors are listed on the menu, One Twenty One does not offer any organic dishes or grass-fed meats; try the pizza for a sure bet. In mild weather, relax and enjoy brunch on the patio or porch.
