Preview: Exit 4 Food Hall
This new space in Mount Kisco features nine food stations and craft beer and wine with local influences.
Joe DiMauro of Mount Kisco Seafood oversees Exit 4's seafood station, serving homemade chowders, lobster rolls, and raw bar platters.
Isi Albanese is the latest Westchester restaurateur to bring a NYC dining trend—in this case the communal food hall—to Westchester.
“I wanted a communal experience while giving emerging culinary talent an outlet to create and experiment with new food trends at individualized stations,” says Albanese.
The 80-seat Exit 4 Food Hall has nine food stations, each with its own blackboard menu.
They are: Charcuterie 153, offering smoked and cured meats and savory cheeses; Rawsome Seafood Bar by Mount Kisco Seafood (don’t miss the lobster roll); Inno Sushi by James, a classic sushi bar with grab-and-go or dine-in options; Rotiss-A-Q with rotisserie-cooked meats prepared by former owner of A&S Marketplace John Cioffi; Piacci Pasta Bar serving first-rate pastas; Fuoco Wood Fired Pizza; Dirty Roots by Myong, where Chef Myong Feiner proffers Korean/Asian twists on healthy salads and juices; and Paninis, Sandwiches and Wraps, also by Chef Feiner (the ahi bánh mi is a must-order).
Classic sushi, specialty rolls, and sashimi by Inno Sushi.
There’s also a small-plates bar, X4 on Tap, serving a rotating selection of 10 craft beers and 8 wines on tap, locally roasted specialty coffees from BPM Roasters, and Jones craft soda. Java geeks can freak over nitro coffee, which is cold-brewed (i.e., steeped and not heated) coffee infused with nitrogen gas, kegged like beer and served on tap.
Executive Chef Rahsaan White heads up the Exit 4 culinary team and previously served as a personal chef for heavyweight boxer Michael Grant.
The majority of seating consists of communal tables and benches made from recycled wood salvaged from storm damage.
Exit 4 is in the space occupied for 20 years by Bellizzi, a casual pizzeria with a play area, also owned by Albanese.
