What's New in Piermont

Piermont is bustling with activity; new restaurants and shops along with longtime favorites have made this riverside village a popping place to hang out.

In a spot that has gone through several business ventures, a fabulous new pizza place, DVine Pie, is already a village gem. Sparkill’s own DVine Bar owner Joe Printz and longtime Piermont resident Doug Stone, along with their partners, have created a winning combination of a great New York pub style atmosphere with a totally new take on pizza. This little Village restaurant is truly a great destination for locals and tourist alike! 10964’s In Our Backyard reviews DVine Pie in this issue.

The long vacant Community Market has reopened and is ready to serve Piermont and its surrounding neighbors. New owner and Sparkill resident Hank Hovorka is offering among the usual grocery store items, a butcher, fresh fish, great cheeses, and charcuterie. There is even space to sit down and enjoy everything from a bagel to a full meal from their wonderful selection of cold cuts and prepared foods. This much missed Market is finally back in business!

A new Spanish restaurant, Basque, is coming to the spot formerly occupied by The Reef. Coming from northern Spain, owner Benny Castro takes inspiration from the Basque region creating a menu rich with 16 to 18 tapas, paellas, sangrias, and traditional entrées such as Pollo al Ajillo (garlic chicken) and Mariscada in Green Sauce (clams, mussels, shrimp and scallops over saffron rice), as well as an assortment of fine Spanish wines. Try it! 587 Piermont Avenue, Piermont.

Northeast Salvage, located next to Bunberry’s, has found its home in Piermont. The ever changing inventory of this eclectic shop includes a great collection of vintage and antique items, from furniture and lighting, to household decor and memorabilia.

Abercorn Place has moved its unique women’s clothing store two doors south and shortened its name to A Place. With its signature iron butterfly bench sitting out front, A Place may have changed locations, but the clothes remain just as fabulous.

Down to Earth Farmers Market is open Sundays 9:30 am - 3:00 pm in the M&T Bank parking lot. While small, this market can easily supply an entire week’s menus with its farm fresh produce, eggs, bakery and other locally prepared food and drink.

When it comes to finding the unique, the unusual, and the personal, Piermont’s charming shops and restau- rants provide a wonderful selection of gifts and items you can’t find elsewhere, and it’s surely better than any mall!
