Visiting our kids who live in Chappaqua and made reservations here. A small storefront restaurant.
They have very good service and a nice small reasonably priced menu. My only complaint is the noise level but that is tough in such a small restaurant.
Started with Sformatino di Melanzane , a slowly cooked eggplant souffle’, topped with burrata fondue & light tomato sauce, different and superb. Also had the Barbabietole salad, warm rainbow beets, frisée, fresh goat cheese, toasted almonds,with balsamic vinegar.
For mains, I had the Orata Marechiaro, sautéed filet of orata, cherry tomatoes, clams, mussels, & white wine. A fish that I never heard of and we travel pretty extensively. A very delightful light white fish that was magnificently prepared and presented. My wife ordered the Pappardelle Al Ragu Di Agnello, homemade pappardelle, braised lamb ragu & shaved pecorino cheese . Also a great dish with lots of flavors.
Great finish with a chocolate molten cake with vanilla ice cream, fig and a strawberry
I don't give 5 *'s freely and café Alaia was a true delight.
