Grand Central American Grill will open in April where the Tollgate Steakhouse and Limoncello used to be on Boston Post Road in Mamaroneck.
Owner Nicholas Ligotino tells me the place will be a comfortable spot for great steaks, salads, fresh seafood and burgers and will have two raw bars: one outside on the back patio, where diners can watch people shucking to order.
The chef, Matthew Levy, used to cook at Angelo & Maxie’s in Manhattan.
There are three floors in the restaurant, and the top two have exposed brick walls. The bright and spacious top floor has French doors that look out onto Boston Post Road. The first floor will have have a big bar with stone accents and old fashioned Edison light bulbs.
“It’s rustic industrial,” says Ligotino. “A lot of brick and stone, and the lights are going to be very dim. It’s going to be a very comfortable atmosphere.”
Ligotino and his partner, Joseph Tramo, also own Nicky’s Beer Garden in the Bronx, where there’s a giant beer garden outside. Ligotino says he opened in this spot because he loved the location.
The 411 is coming soon. Til then: 974 E. Boston Post Road, Mamaroneck. 914-630-7779
