Preview: tredici NORTH
This new restaurant in Purchase is showcasing creative Italian cuisine and uniforms designed by famed fashion icon Kenneth Cole.
An indulgent appetizer is the $18 Angry Lobster: a pan-fried 1-lb Maine lobster with Meyer lemon, white wine, roasted garlic, and finished with red chili.
Italian restaurants are so commonplace in the county, it’s fair to reference the term “glut” without being accused of hyperbole. The opening of a new one, then, wouldn’t likely excite the palates of most county foodies. After all, do we really need another plate of chicken scarpariello?
One glance at the menu at the new tredici NORTH, however, a 68-seat Italian restaurant in the space where China White had been, eschews any concerns of cuisine redundancy. Chef Giuseppe Fanelli, a Sleepy Hollow resident, has turned a keen culinary eye (and capable cooking hand, having run the kitchen at Baldoria, sister restaurant to the legendary Rao’s) to craft modern from-the-boot fare. Expect creative starters such as “Inside-Out” meatballs (panko-breaded and stuffed with mozzarella and ricotta), and inventive entrées like grilled lamb chops dusted with cayenne and whiskey-sugar and served with sweet potato marshmallow flan.
A noteworthy house-made dessert is the peanut-butter-and-jelly panna cotta.
Also of note are the stylish front- and back-of-the-house attire, designed by fashion icon and Westchester resident Kenneth Cole.
