Sherwood's for Ribs and More
by Jonny Benton and Austin Shea
Great food, a good atmosphere, and a courteous staff are what make
Sherwood's one of the best places to eat in Larchmont. Sherwood's,
famous for its ribs, also boasts a variety of other quality foods

Although ribs are the most popular item on Sherwood's' menu, they

the vegetarian chili.
If there is room in your stomach after the main course, you can
move on to dessert. "The Tollhouse Cookie is the best dessert ever,"
David Jenkins exclaims. One employee confesses that when the batch
comes out of the oven, the whole staff is there to get a whiff of
When it comes to great dining in Larchmont, Sherwood's is one of
the first restaurants we consider. It's a great place for kids or
dates, and with their fair prices and hearty portions, Sherwood's
won't break the bank. We give Sherwood's five big "golden forks,"
our highest rating.
