Snow Storm Dining in Tappan

My wife and I have a tradition that dates back to the 1960's, when we lived in Manhattan.  Whenever there was a snow storm, we would eat at O'Henry's Steak House, a great restaurant in the Village, now long gone.  Now when there's a snow storm, we go to the '76 House on Main Street in Tappan.  Our rule is that it must be snowing hard- no little flurries for us.  We walk through the deserted streets, and get a table by the fireplace.  The food is very good, the ambience unparalleled, and seeing the snow falling outside makes the inside that much more cozy.  We still have a menu that the tavernkeeper, Rob Norden prepared a few years ago: The Scary Storm Menu.  The brave man kept his place open, and we dined along with some other hardy souls during a blizzard.  Great fun!
