Anthony Goncalves, self-trained chef/owner, opened 42 in 2007 on the 42nd floor of The Ritz-Carlton, Westchester, in White Plains, set in the sky overlooking Westchester County. His restaurant career began with Trotters Tavern in 1997, at age 26. In 2001, he dropped "Tavern" and redesigned the menu to include a Mediterranean and Iberian / Portuguese-inspired cuisine within a fine dining setting and in 2002, with no previous training, he took over the kitchen and taught himself to cook with a little help from his family.
Trotters received rave reviews from Crain's New York Business, The New York Times and in November 2004, Esquire magazine named him "A Chef to Keep an Eye On." In 2010, Anthony was included in Josh Ozersky’s TIME Magazine series, “Chefs of the Future.” In 2013, Anthony essentially created a new restaurant by transforming the interiors and menu, making it more reminiscent of Trotters continuing to pay homage to his Portuguese roots. With a bad boy exterior and sincere character, Anthony’s unique personality has become the anchor of the experience at 42 The Restaurant, where the tagline is “It’s Different Up Here.”
42 offers an unforgettable experience for your guests if you are celebrating your wedding, bar or bat mitzvah, birthday, anniversary or graduation. Stunning views and personalized service combine with Chef Anthony Goncalves’ award winning cuisine to elevate your event, whatever the occasion.

We knew it was going to be luxurious, hey, we're talking the Ritz here but...Wow! What to look at first? The breathtaking panorama through the windows, the shimmering crystal chandeliers, the lush beige-and-red furnishings, those colorful, dazzling cocktails served in the lounge, or the dishes of mouthwatering food streaming out from the open kitchen to eager diners ensconced in very comfy chairs? Kudos to Anthony Goncalves, whose stunning brainchild at once makes an indelible mark on the White Plains skyline and restaurant scene. With its unparalleled views (you can see the entirety of the Manhattan skyline), 42 closes the deal with a commanding menu of new and classic dishes that simply impress—from small plates and tasting dishes to full-portioned a la carte offerings. The ambience, service, food, and drinks harmoniously converge to make dining at 42 a magical experience.
