Boes - now Gervasi's?

I was just on Central Avenue in White Plains and passed by the old Boe space and there are new awnings that say Gervasi's and a sign in the window with a phone number that says Gervasi's. Does anyone have the scoop on this? Is this the old chef from Mulinos?

          1. re: kaaaassss

            Where was Boe's? Where is Gervasi?

            kaaasss, posters have said Buon Amici is a really good Italian.

            1. re: dolores

              Buon Amici is a good restaurant. Reasonably priced, nice size portions and good food.

              Boes was in the space that used to be Gregorys. A couple of blocks from Buon Amici on the same side of the street.

              1. re: kaaaassss

                Yes, thanks -- I remember Gregory's.

                1. re: dolores

                  Let's see if he can make a go of that spot. Boe opened to much fanfare but did not last very long. Less then a year.

                2. re: kaaaassss

                  kaaasss, you are correct. Buon Amici is very good, on the line of a Mamma Francesca without the outstanding bread or the complementary salad.

                  Service was perfect, the wine pour was excellent, and the food was good. We had a calamari appetizer (with tentacles!), a seafood macaroni dish, salmon, and veal francese. No dessert. A really nice touch was putting the bottle of Sambuca on the table.

                  Price was appox. $37. a person.

                  I would go back.

                    glad you enjoyed your dinner dolores.... what i like about it also is they don't rush you through dinner. you can linger and enjoy your wine or coffee.

                    1. re: kaaaassss

                      Absolutely, that's a BIG plus for me, kaaassss.

                      Also nice to see, just about all the tables were filled on a Sunday night.

          2. Gervasi's is located at 324 Central Ave

            1. I heard this place closed already - open and closed in two weeks. Anyone know otherwise?

                you heard that Gervasi's closed already....Wow

                1. re: kaaaassss


                  Speaking of closed, what happened to Roaring Rooster in New Rochelle?

                  So, I finally found where Avellino is, hopefully they'll stay around for a bit.

                  1. re: dolores

                    roaring rooster is still open, under a different name (sorry don't remember what it is). now located in a mini mall (there's ups store and a quiznos) 211 main st.

                      Ah, that's the chicken place near Spadaro.

                      Thanks, 2bonn.

                      1. re: 2bonn

                        Chicken place near Spadaro is called Chickens Gone Wild.

                        1. re: laylag

                          Thanks, laylag. I'm surprised they changed both their location and their name.

                      2. re: dolores

                        Wow. I didn't even get to try and weigh in on them -- Avellino is closed.
