Ridge Hill is Chain Hill
Right now only a portion of the chains are open at Ridge Hill but they include Yard House (where I dined and will write a full review in a later post),and Cheesecake Factory (back in my heart with their skinnylicious menu). Opening in 2012 we have Brio (an Italian chain, doesn't excite me that much - let me know if you think otherwise), Oh wait, I take it back. I just went on their website and the first thing I saw was a $5.00 martini night and $2.95 bar menu. I am in!!! Lots of fun things on that bar menu like Spicy Shrimp and Eggplant, Ravioli Caprese and Spinach Artichoke Dip. Also opening in 2012 is the one my little Yussie (Brett) is most excited for Texas de Brazil. It looks like this place has a massive salad bar. I could get behind that. The other part, all that endless meat, might not really be for me. I would try it with Yussie though. Elevation Burger is opening (cute, fun burger place but with all the other options not sure I will go), Havana Central (Cuban NY chain) and Barbes (this is the TOTALLY random one - only one other location is that weird kinda corporate, kinda Murray Hill location). The food is described as Parisian and North African. No thanks. I'll stick with the Yard House and watch sports and drink beers thank you very much!
Ridge Hill, good job! I just wish something like this would open in Rockland County. Jesus knows they ceretainly need it!
