The Stone Manor 101

TheStoneManor101logofinal

Westchester has a new steakhouse. It is called The Stone Manor 101. The focus is Mediterranean influenced dishes. Owners Michael Casarella and Tommy Stratis have put much love into this new venture (they also  own Casa Rina and Goldfish Oyster Bar). This building, which has been around for a very long time, has been completely gutted, redesigned and is a new gem in our community. The calming muted colors, contemporary lighting and  stylish furniture make this 14, 000 square foot space a worthwhile destination. In addition, there is ample room for corporate parties and they are building bridal suites for weddings on the upper level.

The ambience is beautiful, contemporary, and the service is fantastic. Given its size they have many plans unfolding. A wine room is developing as are various patio plans.

The busy and well-appointed open kitchen creates a unique experience

The restaurant has an “open kitchen” so you can watch the preparations by CIA trained chef, Scott Karns (who they relocated from Kansas City steakhouses to lead the charge here) and Sous Chef William Lawrence, who learned and honed his skills at the The French Culinary Institute.

Stone Manor  has large roomy lounge areas for cocktails, an impressive and broad wine list and over twenty wines by the glass. Anthony and Alex are gracious behind the bar and very attentive. The wine list features bottles from France and Italy, South America and Australia and many delicious wines from California and our country’s Northwest region.

The steak menu ranges from a 45 ounce Porterhouse for two, to a 14 ounce Filet Mignon, and a 20 ounce Prime Rib. A nine ounce filet is available for those with smaller appetites, or those who just want to make room for the wide ranging selection of side dishes that include roasted garlic mashed potatoes, baked eggplant and artichoke mousaka.

Porterhouse for two – – a prime cut of steak as it is cut from the large end of the short loin – very tender and well executed

Steaks well prepared to your desired temperature – here is the Prime Rib with a horseradish sauce

The menu features many outstanding sauces to accompany its main steak offerings, including a Chimichurri, which was delicious atop the grilled Skirt Steak, a Gorganzola Bechamel,  Béarnaise, Green Peppercorn Cognac, which pairs well with the Rib Eye, and a Wild Mushroom Marsala sauce. The star, in my opinion, is the Prime Rib (a true WOW). This steak is presently only available Thursday through Saturday, but is amply portioned, the seasoning is pristine and mouth feel is noteable.

In addition to steaks and touting themselves as a steakhouse, there are other offerings, too. The appetizers include a wonderful plate of jumbo shrimp wrapped in pancetta, sliders, and vegetarian meatballs, which allow something for everyone. The lobster roll is the most substantial and tasty we have ever had in Westchester.

Stuffed Long Hots – – spicy peppers stuffed with ricotta and roasted to deliciousness – heat alert for the faint of heart! We love them.

Side dishes do not disappoint. The creamed spinach is absolutely perfect. The mashed potatoes will have you falling out of your chair – – they are that good and served in beautiful personal sized cast iron mini-Dutch ovens. A throw back but well executed is the Sweet Potato Au Gratin, yes… Complete with marshmallows in the mix!

Stone Manor also features an outstanding fish and chicken menu ranging from maple glazed wild salmon with roasted parsnips and scallions; to grilled swordfish finished with citrus segments, cauliflower puree, fennel prawns and croutons; to a stuffed roasted chicken that is combined with mushroom duxelle, braised fennel, baby carrots and snap peas.

Desserts are artfully crafted by pastry chef Arlin Varela and complement the menu’s savory choices.
