Mediterraneo means Mediterraneanand we are lucky to have a piece of it off the Atlantic.
Here’s the 411: The White Plains location shared its summer menu.
While Mediterraneo’s background is predominately Italian, the chefs use French cooking techniques with global flavors like harissa and pluots to elevate their dishes.
Seasonal ingredients are in heavy rotation. It’s beautiful to see squash blossoms, figs, arugula, and mint liberally plated.
Look at the house-cured olives!
And if you are gluten-free or vegetarian, don’t fret. There are so many choices allowing you to have a full meal.
Some particular highlights for me include: Octopus Carpaccio (shown), Prince Edward Island Mussels (not shown), Zucchini Spaghetti with French Lentil Salad (not shown), and the Flat Iron Steak with Avocado Chimichurri (shown). Last but not least, the cocktail selection is strong. As indulgent as a Chocolate Old Fashioned to as light as the housemade Limoncello.
And the wines are superb. For once, I’ll call out a white. Many of you know I’m mostly a red drinker, but the Chateau de Sancerre - Loire - France is notable for summer drinking.
Chef Albert and his team are consummate at what they do. The chefs speak with heart, the mixologists craft like magicians, and the staff delivers with pride.
All in a beautiful setting nonetheless.
Bro Tip: Parking can be tough, but valet ($12) at the Ritz-Carlton if you don’t want to be bothered.
