Badageoni Georgian Kitchen
Silk Road introduced flavors from the Caucasus, the Mediterranean, and other parts of Europe to the country’s culinary background.
While Georgian food is rich with meat dishes, there are also a variety of vegetarian and vegan choices.
You don’t want to miss Georgian wine, especially the qveri, amber wine fermented in clay vessels.
Badageoni offers live music on Thursdays and Sundays.
The food is excellent. The flavors are very different and leave your taste buds pleasantly confused and amazed. The service was superb. The waitress explained the dishes and helped us order and overall was
very attentive. Despite an almost cafeteria-like ambiance, they whole experience was well worth it. We will definitely return.
I probably would not have tried the restaurant if I had just looked inside. While it is clean and neat, the ambiance is a bit cold and harsh looking. They would do well to dim the lights, change the blue ceiling light to a warmer tone, perhaps add some tablecloths, and definitely add candles to the tables & bar....an easy fix....that being said...and I'm so glad we did try it because the food was absolutely delicious and the service incredibly professional, courteous and friendly. Knowing close to nothing about Georgian food, we asked for recommendations and they were all fantastic. The Chikhirtma chicken soup was to die for. We will go back for that a lot. One of the most unique and delicious soups we've ever had and we make a lot of homemade soup. Definitely order it. We had the Adjaruli cheese bread. It arrives at the table with raw egg in the hot cheese, and one needs to quickly stir it in to cook it. It was wonderful. The table next to us ordered the Imeruli cheese bread which looked a little like a stuffed pizza, and we made a note to try that next time too. Next we tried the Khinkali beef & pork dumplings. We received 4 large soup dumplings which were much thicker and heavier and spiced differently than Chinese soup dumplings, but yummy. Last we had the Chakapuli slow cooked lamb. It was incredibly tender with a unique flavor profile due to the herbs and greens used. While the desserts looked delicious, we were too full to try them. We finished off the meal by trying a glass of Georgian cha cha liqueur. If you like Poire William, you might like this even more. It was refreshing and not cloyingly sweet like many other Eastern European liqueurs. We feel lucky that Mt Kisco has a new Georgian restaurant and we wish them much success. We will be back and hopefully will bring a group as there is plenty of room. In the meantime, I hope they tend to a few of the ambiance issues to appeal to a broader audience sooner.
Excellent place. Somewhat surprised that it was not decorated in Georgian style, as is common.
Very good khinkali, excellent mini-khinkali and khachapuri. Kharcho soup was just good, while lobio was excellent! It was the first time we had liquid lobio - we are used to a drier variety, with pomegranate on top, etc., but it was a very pleasant revelation.
Mukuzani wine was superb, so we had to order a second bottle. We are reluctant to buy Georgian wine in liquor stores since most of the time it is a cheapo fake of the real thing - but this one was excellent!
Strongly recommend this place.
The food is very good, authentic and very different than anything I've ever had before. The portions for the appetizers are huge and you can easily get very full just sharing appetizers. Everything we had was very good, but be warned this is stick to your ribs kind of food.
Nice little place with unique food options for the area. I can't recall the names of the dishes unfortunately, but the cold appetizer of 3 vegetable patties (carrot, beets and spinach) was delicious and filling...good next day too. Dumplings outstanding, good pork grill. Wines are all Georgian and I had a delicious red, generously poured. A pillowy, creamy dessert with a kiss of wine sauce for dessert - exquisite. Will return.
Food came out fast, fresh, and hot. The assorted pickles plate was especially fun. Will be eating there again.
We fell in love with Georgian food when we were in Russia several years ago and were thrilled to go to Badageoni. It did not disappoint. Loved the cold appetizers (had the eggplant and the rolls), the chicken soup (different but delicious), both salads (house and chef's) and the dumplings. The kebabs were plentiful, well-seasoned and delicious. The star of the show, as it was in Russia, is the round cheesy bread. It's like a cross between a calzone, but so much better. Great choice for vegetarians, meat eaters and anybody who likes good food.
We love this place! Service is over the top and food is excellent. What a welcome addition to the Mount Kisco dining scene!
I've already told several friends about this terrific restaurant. The food is excellent. There are many healthy options and the portions are good. The staff is terrific. It's apparent everyone, both the kitchen and wait staffs, cares about the food and is proud of what they produce. Wait staff can be a second thought in some restaurants, but not here. The servers enhance the experience. I've already made a reservation to return.
From the moment we walked in the staff was very attentive and friendly. Orders were received in a timely manner. We ordered the cheese boat, lamb in tarragon and salmon with roasted all were hot and delicious. Prices are very reasonable
We will be returning to sample more from the menu.
Great food and great people!! You will enjoy it.
The owner is a very humble person.
