Out and About: The Hidden Gems of New Rochelle

  |     |   Neighborhood

Nestled in the southeastern part of the state in Westchester County, New Rochelle is a lovely city rich in history and culture with great shopping and incredible restaurants. What about the side of New Rochelle that people don’t typically see? Let’s explore some hidden gems of the city.

G & K Sweet Foods

Based in New Rochelle, G & K Sweet Foods is a southern dessert business. Their claim to fame is Grandma’s Momma’s Legacy ‘Licious Sweet Potato Pie, but don’t skip out on the other goodies! Tasty treats like kosher oatmeal raisin cookies, chocolate chip cookies, and sweet potato tarts are sold online around Westchester County. It all started right here in New Rochelle.

The Dining Lab

You can get a nice dinner at many places in New Rochelle, but there’s only one place where you can get a three-course meal prepared by a culinary student. Monroe College’s Dining Lab Restaurant gives its culinary students real-world experience in preparing farm-to-table American-style food at a very reasonable price.

Seatings are at 6:30 pm, 7 pm, and 7:15 pm Tuesday through Friday. Each semester is ten weeks and the menu changes twice. You’ll be treated to chef-quality meals like pan-seared, farm-raised salmon, panko-crusted striped bass, and cider brined pork loin with potato pancakes. Are you hungry yet?

So Much to Discover!

New Rochelle is a walkable city, making it even more fun to explore. Enjoy an exciting nightlife, breathtaking parks, and outdoor recreation for the whole family. There’s so much to see, do, and discover in New Rochelle.

But if you want to branch out, it is close enough to Yonkers and Manhattan that a short drive will get you there. It’s a big city without the bustle.
