Francine is a Manager at a Peloton Showroom who resides in Port Chester, NY. When she’s not riding her Peloton or sipping on some coffee from her favorite local coffee shop, you can find her spending the day in NYC or around the tristate area trying new restaurants or fun activities like axe throwing.
What do you love about where you live now?
Port Chester is a great centralized location to reside in because of it’s proximity to NYC and lower Fairfield County. It’s also a short drive to the quaint rivertowns making it a great spot to be based. It has an awesome small business vibe with an eclectic mix of ethnic food options. If in need of large chain store those are there too!
What are your go-to spots?
The restaurants boast great flavor and authenticity to their roots. These are some of my go-to spots to grab a bite:
Aqui Es Santa Fe
Panka Peruvian Bistro
What's the best kept secret in your area?
If you’re moving to town, you will LOVE the charm of the historic homes. During the warmer weather enjoy a picnic in Lyon Park or take a run around the track at the Port Chester High School.
How would you describe the vibe as a local?
The vibe is young and full of life while still personifying family values and local history.
What advice would you give someone moving to the area?
The advice I have given to friends who have moved to Port Chester and the Rye Brook area is that you have mom & pop shops along with great restaurants that provide a variety of ethnic foods- Aqui Es Sante Fe, Taco Shack and Sonora. Make sure to check out Rye Beach and the great vibes at the Tiki Bar.
