Opening Soon: The Post Road Ale House in New Rochelle


The Post Road Ale House, a new American tavern on Hugenot Street in New Rochelle with high ceilings, cherrywood floors and a 25-seat bar, will open Saturday wtih an open house. It will begin serving a regular menu on Sunday.

The menu will have steaks, pastas and fish, and is similar to what was served at MacMenamin’s Grill (which has since become Don Coqui, serving Cuban and Puerto Rican food). All entrees are less than $20. There will be draft beers — some local, such as Captain Lawrence; some craft beers from New England; and standards such as Stella Artois and Guinness.

There are 70 seats in the restaurant, which was formerly knows as The Tilted Kilt. There are also large screen TVs and private sitting areas in the dining room. The tavern is named so because Boston Post Road is known as Huguenot Street in this area of New Rochelle.
