Try Eastchester Burrata Wood Fired Pizza

Try Eastchester Burrata Wood Fired Pizza

One of the nicest things about living in Westchester is exploring different towns and restaurants. Eastchester has a nice little section on Rt 22 that has some of my favorite spots to eat. Of course I was intrigued when I saw that a wood fired pizza restaurant had opened last Feb. Today was my first chance to stop in.

I walked in and was pleasantly surprised to see the bar set for table service complete with wine glasses. I felt welcomed immediately. The waitress Caitlin, greeted me, and was friendly and quick throughout. My next surprise was seeing that there was a prix fixe lunch menu @ $10.00 Monday through Thursday from 12 to 3 pm. I though that was pretty great especially because it included a soup or salad and a personal pizza. I ordered the soup of the day, roasted cauliflower with olive oil. It was just right on a nippy day. I chose the margherita pizza; tomato, mozzarella, basil and extra virgin olive oil. As I was waiting (it was the middle of the afternoon) I saw the chef come out, sit at the bar and have a margherita pizza. There is no better testament than a chef that eats from his own menu!! I introduced myself and found that he was Chas Anderson, Westchester native son, and an alumni of the French Culinary Institute in Manhattan and the Alma Culinary Institute in Parma, Italy. I asked him about the bags of flour displayed under copper pans in the dining room and he told me that he used double zero, finely milled, 100% natural, unbleached, unbromated flour because it yielded a very tender crust. He said, "That is the way pizza is supposed to be made!" There is a specially constructed Stefano Ferrara kiln dried Wood Fired Oven that is hand crafted from   Naples. They fire the pizza and calzones at 900 degrees.

They also had a nice selection of bottled beers that changes periodically but includes imported and domestic as well as some smaller local breweries. They have a wine program with "boutique style" sines at an affordable price. The drink menu had some tempting offerings like a strawberry caipirinha and and Aperol Spritz, something I make at home regularly. There are antipasti, salads,pizza and pasta on the menu with daily specials. 

I thought the decor was charming and would be great for a date or a family and friends night out. Park across the street in the metered lot and check it out. I don't think you will be disappointed. Bon Appetit!!
