Have you noticed Dobbs Ferry, the new, large, wrap-around restaurant on the corner of Hayes and Gough? The owners, Scott Broccoli and Danny Sterling, purchased the former Allegro restaurant and an adjacent kebab shop on Hayes, uniting them to create an expansive new neighborhood hangout with blue wainscoting, exposed brick walls and a huge avocado tree growing out of a closed interior patio area. Sure, the restaurant has reclaimed wood floors and a lot of the menu uses locally sourced ingredients, but they're not the type to mention it on the menu, or even in passing conversation for that matter.
The staff is more likely to light up when they elaborate on the cocktail list, listing drinks made with un-pretentious spirits (Jack Daniels, Sauza Hornitos, Wild Turkey 81). There's even a "Rum and Coke," featuring your choice of regular or diet.
