For years, Myong Private Label Gourmet has been known for its healthy takeout, catering and cafe. Now add fine dining to the list.
In its new location — the 3,500-square-foot space once occupied by Q restaurant in Mount Kisco — chef-owner Myong Feiner is serving her healthy, Asian-influenced cuisine, but now on tablecloths.
Feiner, who owns the restaurant with her husband, Rob Feiner, is a self-taught chef, a Korean immigrant who worked her way through school as a waitress and short-order cook. Her current business began with cooking classes at home for friends and quickly grew into running a juice bar at a local gym.
Rob Feiner describes their menu as European, Asian and progressive American. Some highlights: Hudson Valley duck breast, braised short ribs, “Deconstructed Lobster Macaroni and Cheese” and Pacific Northwest wild salmon. The attractive restaurant, which seats 50, has an upscale, modern vibe with a bit of Asian influence.
Paintings by chef Myong herself have been hung all around the well-decorated dining room, which offers a cozy atmosphere for patrons. But if you’d rather take your food to go, there’s still a cafe section of the business that offers the healthy gourmet items that Myong is famous for. — Latoya West
