A Gastropub Comes To Westchester?


If you’ve ever been to the Spotted Pig in the West Village you know what I’m talking about: Pub atmosphere (like brick walls and an old wooden bar) with great food (at the Pig it’s a kickin’ burger and to-die-for gnudi — sort of like gnocchi but better).

Well, that’s what I’m hoping the folks at Pearl Management will bring us when they open Brick Alley Pub in Tuckahoe.

Pearl is the same group that just finished opening Morgans Fish House in Rye, and they’re working on remodeling the Rye Grill, too. And since they also own Elm Street Oyster House in Greenwich, Ruby’s Oyster Bar & Bistro in Rye and Lexington Square Cafe in Mount Kisco, I’m thinkin’ they know what they’re doing.

Here’s the cool part: the space was formerly Rockwells, the first restaurant ever owned by Jim Sullivan, one of the partners in Pearl with Jan Fabry. Sullivan described his vision to me as “high-end pub” and “pub with polish.â€? And I know he loved that burger at the Spotted Pig.

BTW, the name, Brick Alley Pub, comes from the fact that you’ll have to walk down a brick alley to enter. I’m keeping a close eye on this one!

Brick Alley Pub, 16 Depot Square, Tuckahoe. No phone yet.
