I am not sure if they spent all of their money hiring great chefs. THe food is pricey but outstanding. The service sucked. If your looking for a good diner experience I would say the Ridge in Nj is well worth the drive for price and service. i ws doing some holiday shopping figured Id try the Nanuet diner again, and was shocked that the service got worse then it was before. The food somehow got better, pricey, but yum!
