Does any one have any information about the new Valbella in Westchester?

    Just went there for the first time tonight with my wife; a Saturday. Decoraton is funeral home contempory. Not knowing what I was getting into and having been to the Greenwich location, I dressed in a jacket. Maitre d'hotel sat me in the rear suggesting a specific seat which overlooked an escape door with a large red exit sign. I said I will sit on the other side of the table which gave me a better view of the restuarant. Since this was a steak house I opted for the gorganzola strip steak special. The steak was tough and had little flavor while the gorganzola still retained some of its chunky beginnings. The remaining part of the dinner was good and service was good. The ambiance was a bit diminished as the maitre d'hotel sat a family next to us that had three boys, one of which looked about three with a pacifier in his mouth. He was agitated for a good part of the dinner. The restaurant was about 95 % full and for a Saturday night there was an abundance of children. Prices were steakhouse like. If this is what you want by all means go. Hopefully, my next premier will be a bit better, BLT.

      Just must correct my error in the previous post. the steak was the shell steak special, not strip steak. Description stands.
