First Look: Full Moon in White Plains

1

I dropped in for takeout at this new Thai restaurant on East Post Road the other day. The dining room is beautifully appointed with sandstone walls, mirrors, pendant lighting and bas relief sculptures from stone and wood.

Here’s a look around:

You can see the hanging pendants here, and the mirrored wall on one side:

In the way back there is a small bar. I’m standing at it to shoot this:

I’m back at the front now. You can see the four brightly colored stools at the bar in the back of the photos. Along the left wall is the sandstone and the bas reliefs.

In the window by the reception desk there is a fountain, a few grasses and some Buddha statues:

There’s also an intricate wood carving behind the reception desk:

Here’s the window from the street:

Back at my desk, I have my takeout lunch:

It’s a noodle soup with pork and fish pattys and a few baby bok choy:

Not the best intro to the restaurant, I fear.  A bit salty and no spices or chilies to speak of. But don’t hold me to that assessment. This is one dish — takeout, no less — on the fourth day it was open. I wasn’t there for a critique — just a peek inside. The restaurant doesn’t even have its liquor license yet. I’m going back for pad Thai or curry … and soon.

Readers — have you eaten properly at the restaurant yet? What have you had? Did you like it?

The 411 on Full Moon is on its way. For now:

Full Moon is at 124 E. Post Road, White Plains. 914-328-7555.

  1. I fear you will be disappointed if you go back looking for Pad Thai. It’s not on the menu! When I went during the first week, I found my lunch to be bland and not even remotely Asian. Very disappointing!
