Breaking: Shea Gallante to Open a Restaurant in Port Chester


My colleague Liz Anderson (a food lover, herself) just pointed out this blog post on NBC Feast that I missed last week: Shea Gallante, formerly at Cru and Bouley in Manhattan, will open Arrosto, an “urban Italian” restaurant in Port Chester in June.

From the interview:

What will Arrosto be like [so we can reserve our Zipcars now]?
It’s a big project. There’s a bar-lounge area. There’s a wood-burning grill, pizza oven, an antipasto bar; there’ll be small plates prepared in front of the open kitchen with seats for 16 at the bar; a regular dining area that can accommodate parties up to 40 or 50. Internally, the restaurant fits approximately 200 people. Peter Niemetz, a Boston-based firm designed the space. He’s worked with Godfrey in the past. I think he did Tony Maws’ new place, a restaurant for Ken Oringer.

I’ll keep you updated as i get more information.

UPDATE: Apparently Shea lives in Ardsley. And it looks like — but I haven’t confirmed — that he is taking over the former Hosteria Mazzei space. An outgoing message there says: “We are presently closed for renovations and hope to open at the end of April.”
