Ludlow offers two separate menus for lunch and dinner, but
one can order off of the dinner menu anytime. Its proximity
to the Tanger Outlets at the Arches makes it a perfect place
to stop in for lunch or dinner before or after shopping, and
from Nov. 2 - Nov. 9 Ludlow Bistro will be offering a prix
fix menu for $24.95 for Long Island Restaurant Week. Connelly,
who is actively involved in the Hills community and recently
sponsored the Half Hollow Hills districts Dancing With
The Faculty, realizes the economy is difficult and encourages
community members to come and enjoy the savings. The prix
fix meal will include an appetizer, entrée and dessert.
Ludlow Bistro occasionally features live music and special
events such as wine tastings, and is available for catering
or booking showers, communions and parties.
Affordable and approachable with a friendly staff and a warm,
energizing atmosphere, Ludlow Bistro is the place to go if
