Putnam Valley has limited dining options to say the least so really any place that serves hot food is a blessing. It just so happens that Watson's is doing one better and really going for being a high quality establishment.
The menu has many of the classic Putnam County/North Westchester staples like chicken wings, burgers, and fried calamari but goes a step beyond with things like Bahn Mi, Corn Chowder, pork belly (served in a variety of ways), and a Cuban sandwich. They continue to update their menu. I can vouch for the Cuban -- it was very good. Their fries are cut in a unique way and are excellent.
They definitely upgraded the bar from the establishment that was in the space before. That, in and of itself is huge. Though I was a little disappointed by the draft selection. I was really hoping for a couple of local craft beers but instead was faced with PBR, Shock Top, and Fat Tire. PBR it is then!
I really think these guys are on the right track with their evolving menu with a local friendly flair. They made a good first impression and I will definitely go back. I would like to see them upgrade the beer/wine selection and maybe even offer some specialty cocktails.
