Inside: Bellota at 42 in White Plains
By Liz Johnson, Special to Metromix
The first time I went to Bellota, the tapas restaurant at 42 at the top of the Ritz-Carlton in White Plains, I ordered a tasting of chef-owner Anthony Goncavles’ new menu, sampling dish after dish of his Portuguese-inspired small plates. I sat at a table for four on the mezzanine, overlooking the twinkling lights of White Plains through the birch trees along the window, and ooh and aahed as each dish that came to the table was more creative—and delicious—than the next.
The second time I went to Bellota, my book club—all eight of us—sat on the comfortable couches in the lounge, laughing, toasting the holidays and sharing a tableful of tapas. It wasn’t that we didn’t love the food— it’s just that the evening wasn’t focused on that.
I’m telling you this because I think Bellota is a great place for just about any sort of evening.
