BLT Steak. On Nov. 14, Manhattan chef Laurent Tourondel brings his BLT Empire (BLT Fish, BLT Market) to the Ritz-Carlton in White Plains. (BLT stands for Bistro Laurent Tourondel, not bacon, lettuce and tomato.) ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a steakhouse, sure, but an elegant one, where youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll order your Kobe beef while gazing at the chocolate brown-and-caramel decor and golden lighting designed by Michael Badley. BLT’s signature blackboard menu will highlight daily specials. Begin with a traditional shrimp cocktail, or go modern and order the roasted beets with goat cheese. Steakhouse sides, stylishly done, accompany veal chops, aged Porterhouse or grilled tuna with a choice of sauces like cilantro mayonnaise. Main Street near Mamaroneck Avenue, White Plains.
