Xaviars at Piermont Restaurant Review: Walk past the restaurant’s stone façade and into the elegant dining room. Delicate cream-colored walls surround tables set with floral arrangements, fine crystal and china. Xaviars views the dining experience as a comprehensive one, which is why it offers only two seatings for dinner --- 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Opt for the five-course prix-fixe with wine pairings for maximum effect; the formidable wine list spans the globe, which means there's a good match for just about every seasonal item on the menu. A ten-course feast is also available. Green onion risotto with jumbo lump crab meat served with field greens in a red wine reduction is refreshing and rich in flavor, while sautéed Berkshire pork and braised bacon with Swiss chard, accented with sweet potato and rosemary apple, is a lovely juxtaposition of robust meaty flavors and sweet autumnal accents. Desserts may include a fruity medley, like a glazed blackberry tartlet with vanilla pastry cream and blackberry Cabernet sorbet, and a warm baba cake with orange segments and golden raisins with pear sorbet.
