Zephs’ Restaurant is a wheelbarrow to table dining experience specializing in global soul food. Housed in a 19th century mill building, Zephs’ has expanded this sense of history to bring traditional world foods to Peekskill NY.
Over 22 years here, they have developed classic dishes that you can expect to see each year, each at its appropriate time. Sour cherry pie in July, heirloom tomato soup in August, cassoulet in December, and duck confit all year long.
Culinary trends are not the focus at Zeph’s Restaurant. They rely on traditional dishes, changing and adapting only as a home cook might, always with an emphasis on fresh ingredients from the market or garden. Everything is made on site: Focaccia and soups; pasta, puff pastry, pierogi and pickles; ice creams, cakes, and pies.
