Roasted Peppers - Mamaroneck

I was in the Village of Mamaroneck yesterday afternoon and spotted a new Mexican restaurant under construction at 230 Mamaroneck Avenue. The sign on the door said Roasted Peppers and I looked inside the open door and construction men were busy at work. Looks to be about halfway done inside. Anyone else know about this restaruant?

  1. I think you are talking about La Herradura which is opening in the old Abis spot. If so, judging by the font used on the name, it looks to be from the same people who own La Herradura on Main Street in New Rochelle. Sadly, this is not a good thing.

    I only ate at the NR place once, about a year ago, but it was so bad as to dictate I not return. Years ago it had gotten some positive posts including some from our resident Mexican expert AdamClyde. I take his recs seriously and so we tried it. After our poor experience I posted. Adam then revisited to see if it had gone downhill and he concurred that it was pretty bad. I can't find the thread or I'd post it. (Chowhound needs an advanced search engine --- Chow people are you listening?)

    I'll reserve judgment on this one until it opens and I give it a try it but I expect I will just be throwing good money after bad.

      no i walked by it also. roasted pepper next to sal's.

        I meant 320 mamaroneck ave next to sals pizza

      2. I walked by Roasted Peppers and it looks like it's not a Mexican restaurant, but an American one. I'm curious. We need something in town that's not another ethnic place, but isn't MOlly Spillane's.

          Agree Avalon.

          My error on the location. So much going on these days on Mmk Ave it's hard to keep track. Yes, Roasted Peppers is next to Sal's. Would be good to have more info on it. La Herradura where Abis was. And something called Little Kitchen or something like that where the tea room used to be.

          1. re: laylag

            I'm really dying to know if Little Kitchen is the same one that's in Westport. That would mean MORE ASIAN.

            I enjoyed my meal at La Herradura last week.

        2. I also walked by "Roasted Peppers" restaurant at 320 Mamaroneck Ave in Mamaroneck. Its going to be an American restaurant. They are apparently working on the website, and it has a few previews of what there menu is going to look like. Looks really good so far. Who knows, this might be my new regular place to eat! check their website:

            Okay. Checked out the menu. I'm intrigued and definitely will try. Hope it's good.

            1. re: laylag

              I just looked at the menu. It says American but seems more mexican to me.

                1. re: cubanat

                  Yeah, kind of. I'd call it Mexican influenced American, different than Mexican-American and not "Mexican". I think the term fusion is overused and so "2000 and late" but maybe American-Mexican fusion?

          2. This is what I can tell you. A friend of mine that works in the Scarsdale school system recommended someone to cater a party I was giving. He and his staff were professional and the food was amazing. I believe the chef/owner of Roasted Peppers is this same guy. I don't think the menu looks straight forward traditional Mexican, but has all the flavors I love. I really hope it is the same person. I look forward to opening. Does anyone know when it is??

              I heard there may be a "soft opening" next week...waiting on a liquor license, though.

              1. re: pubber1

                I emailed them. Here is reply:

                We will have our grand opening Monday November 23rd.

                We hope to see you soon!
