“It's not any one thing that makes Alvin and Friends so special. Sure, the jazz music wafting through the speakers is inviting. And of course, the soulful paintings — all done by the owner — lining the dining room walls are absolutely mesmerizing. And then there's the transformative Southern/Caribbean cooking, which is a standout all on its own. But when you throw them all together...and add in all-smiles hospitality from owner Alvin Clayton - well then you have something really extraordinary. To put it simply: There's nothing else like it in Westchester. In fact, there may be nothing else like it anywhere.”

Jazz pianist Leslie Pintchik, formerly a fixture at Larchmont’s late lamented Watercolor Café, is now appearing regularly twice a month at Alvin & Friends. On Saturday, August 26th the Leslie Pintchik Trio returns to the main dining room with Leslie Pintchik on piano, Scott Hardy on bass, and Michael Sarin on drums. CDHotList.com says “Pianist and composer Leslie Pintchik is one of the finest bandleaders in the field of straight-ahead jazz right now, someone who not only writes with inventive wit and a keen melodic sense, but who also consistently draws the best out of her band members — and she plays piano like a combination of Bud Powell and Bill Evans, impressionistic without being arty, tunefully direct without being simplistic.” No cover charge, but tables in the main dining room are reserved for those ordering a meal and there is a two-drink minimum at the bar.
