BREWSTER, N.Y. -- Aversano’s is the winner of our DVlicious “Special Occasion Restaurant” contest.
The Brewster eatery won with 52 percent of the vote and will receive a DVlicious certificate.
Coming in second in the reader poll was The Arch, also in Brewster, with 32 percent. Valley at the Garrison in Garrison came in third with 16 percent.
December tends to be the time for holiday celebrations, end of year get-togethers, splurge-worthy Saturday nights and even marriage proposals. And Aversano’s is the go-to place in Putnam.
The kid-friendly Italian restaurant does a mean buffalo chicken pizza and can hold its own with fancier fare such as red pepper ravioli and filet mignon with peppercorn sauce. Its appetizer menu goes beyond the traditional with Asian Calamari and Asparagus Aversano. It also caters stay-at-home parties. It is planning a champagne toast blow-out on New Year's Eve.
