Friday Night at The Ritz

Last Friday, we ended a long work week with dinner with friends at the Lobby Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton in White Plains, NY. Back in May, we attended ArtsBash and met Chef Kennardo Holder, Executive Chef at The Ritz-Carlton. We tasted his delicious veggie burger at the event and also learned more about him in our interview so it was fitting to stop by The Ritz-Carlton to taste more of his cooking.

It was Friday, so of course we started off with drinks. Kristina enjoyed Prosecco and, per our friend Keisha, the Ritz-Carlton Martini was perfect!

Next we ate some delicious appetizers. The crab cake was prepared with just the right amount of kick and the mozzarella with pesto was light and refreshing.

It was hard to choose from all the great choices on the menu but we decided to order the Petit filet with polenta and the Sea Bass, which was highly recommended by Chef Kennardo. After eating it, we can see why! The fish was cooked just right, soft and juicy. The creaminess of the polenta complimented the filet perfectly.

The small sample of the Kobe burger was so good that our fried Tay decided to order the bigger portion for dinner.

We’re all sure glad we left room for dessert after Pastry Chef Jackie Wong bought her treats!

We couldn’t have enjoyed our dinner more; the food was delicious and the service was outstanding. It was great to see Chef Kennardo again and it was such a pleasure to meet his team. If you’re ever in White Plains and are looking for a cozy, upscale meal, make sure to visit the Lobby Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton. You will not be disppointed!
