Bistro 146, New Seafood Place, Opens Near By

Bistro 146 opens in Pleasantville and gets seafood from Conte's in Mount Kisco.

A new seafood place in Pleasantville will serve as another nearby dining option for folks in New Castle and Mount Kisco.

The village's Chamber of Commerce continued its recognition of new village businesses with a ribbon cutting at Bistro 146 on Friday. The seafood-focused restaurant replaced Nevaeh Cuisine on Bedford Road in the Old Village.

Bistro 146 is co-owned by Manager Michael Mazzella and Chef Marcello Cheque, who most recently served as executive chef at The Cask in New York City. He also has experience cooking at Ruby's Oyster Bar in Rye, with David's Catering in Stamford, CT, and at Scarsdale's Heathcote Tavern.

Longtime resident and local foodie John Fisher said Bistro 146 is the first seafood restaurant the village has had in many years. Mazzella and Cheque source their seafood from Conte's Fish Market in Mount Kisco, but also serve non-seafood entrees.

"We have it wasabi-dusted pan-seared yellowfin tuna that is delicious; we have a red snapper that is also pan-seared," said Mazzella. "We have lamb sliders, we have a coriander-encrusted rack of lamb."

Other menu highlights include a sweet potato gnocchi with lobster and appetizers such as panko-crusted crabcakes and white fish tacos.

Appetizers and salads on the Bistro 146 menu range from $9 to $14; entrées range from $17 to $29. Desserts, such as banana bread pudding and Rice Crispy tiramisu, range from $4 to $7.

The restaurant, which is adjacent to Michael's Tavern, can seat 23 diners indoors and an additional 20 outside. Bistro 146 will also offer catering.

Mazzella said Bistro 146 was packed for lunch following its grand opening on Friday and he's looking forward to serving locals, as well as those catching a late night show at Jacob Burns Film Center.

And the restaurant already has at least one local stamp of approval—at Monday's board of trustees meeting in Pleasantville, Trustee Jonathan Cunningham noted, "The bistro in the Old Village was a particular surprise. He's doing a very good job with what he's got up there."

Bistro 146 is located at 146 Bedford Rd. in Pleasantville. It is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. for lunch and dinner seven days a week. Reservations are recommended: 914-495-3992.

We had lunch today. The dishes that we had were beautifully prepared and served. My husband's seafood chowder was chock full of fish and unlike many places had a luscious consistency. My squash soup with lobster chunks was delicately flavored with herbs. We usually order different dishes. This time we were both tempted by the sauteed seafood platter. The generous servings offish were the freshest I have tasted since we summered in Maine: PEI mussels, red snapper, sea scallops, jumbo shrimp with perfect house made French fries and very nice asparagus and zucchini. The comments about the server were nasty. Julia Childs never apologized for serving with her "bare" hands - nor do I. We loved our lunch!
