Chic Ambiance, Skyline View, BUT........ – Celebrated Valentine's Day early with dinner at 42. Despite our 5 p.m. reservation, we waited at the bar for over half hour for our table. We were very pleased with the romantic side by side seating, the chic, minimalist decor, and the skyline view. The crowd varied between the well-heeled to 20 somethings dressed in jeans, which I felt detracted from the sleek image 42 strives for. The cocktail menu was sparce and the dinner menu wasn't very innovative, and had only one vegetarian option. We both ordered the $42 market menu, which includes choice of soup du jour or ceasar salad, gnocchi, entre, and chocolate tart topped with caramel ice cream. The portions were laughably small. We appreciate the small portion / high price dining concept, but quality and innovation is key. 42 just doesn't get it. The three gnocchi were mushy and the tomato sauce was acidic, and tasted like it was from a jar. The halibut was average, but my husband's hanger steak was good. The chocolate tart wtih caramel ice cream lacked any punch. The best part of the meal was the passionfruit mojitos, and excellent service. Luckily we had a gift card which covered most of the cost, so it wasn't a total loss. Definitely not worth the price. Would go back for drinks, but skip the meal.
Modern cooking atop the Ritz-Carlton. – Most New Yorkers are not likely to have heard about 42; after all, it’s in White Plains. But the food, by chef Anthony Goncalves, is refined and assertive in a way that many high-end Manhattan restaurants aren’t, and uses deluxe ingredients (foie gras, Amish veal, prime beef) in much more artful ways than you might expect in this area code. The room, with its high ceilings and modernist chandeliers, is large and lavish, if a little bare. Not so the private dining room, which features its own swimming pool.
I love it! – I went with some girlfriends and we had a great time- The bartender is adorable! We had dinner too- the view was awesome, and I loved the octopus. It ended up cheaper than I expected, def going back!
Incredible – the way they made us feel on entering- to the table. The staff was impeccable. The restaurant is immaculate and completely detail orientated. Management friendly yet professional, food the best i have had in a long time passionate chef who knows ingredients and most definitely follows the season everything in it's peek!!!! A beautiful staff that makes you want to go back . BTW chef is very easy on the eyes and charming.
