Bronxville's Park 143 Bistro has only been around for one year, but it has already become a village institution. Owner Wayne Chessler opened the restaurant's doors back on January 20, 2012. Chessler says he's proud to own a restaurant that he can call his own.
“I wanted to create a warm, sophisticated, yet cozy atmosphere with a unique small plate menu meant for sampling and sharing. I can not believe it has been a year since I opened," said Chessler.
To celebrate its one year anniversary, Park 143 Bistro will be holding a special event on January 20. There will be complimentary champagne and hors d' oeuvres from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. Chessler is inviting everyone in the community to the special celebration.
Chessler has been in the Westchester restaurant business for more than two decades, serving as general manager for a number of establishments throughout the years. That experience has paid off when it comes to the success of Park 143. The restaurant's chef's table, which has recessed seating and bright red stools, was named Best of Westchester in 2012. The chef's table is a private location in the back of the restaurant. Park 143 has also been named as a favorite date night restaurant.
The one year anniversary isn't the only big news to come out of the restaurant recently. Park 143 also has a new executive chef. Jason Holmberg has joined the team, coming from New York City's Picholine, where he was sous chef. Holmberg has been in the business for more than 15 years, working at restaurants such as Wolfgang Pucks and BLT Steak.
Executive Chef Holberg oversees the restaurant's expanded menu. Park 143 has added six more entrees since its opening. One of the favorites among customers is the seared sea scallops, which is paired with sweet corn, zucchini, prosciutto in an herb bath. Along with a 16 ounce roasted pork chop with onion puree mustard seed and a cherry sauce. Those visiting the restaurant have also taken notice of the Park 143's signature cocktail, which is called the Park Passion. The drink is actually shot out of a whipped cream canister.
Friday nights have become special at the Bronxville restaurant. Beginning at 9 p.m., local musicians are showcased. Styles include jazz, R&B, funk, blues, soul and rock.
