New in White Plains: Westchester Burger Co

I see the sign is up for this new establishment on Westchester Ave former home of Finn McCools and the short-lived Hito Asian Bistro. Anyone know anything about it?

      I am so looking forward to Westchester Burger Co opening. How ever if it is owned by the same people as Blue and Graziella's I will be crushed as I will never give those eateries my business again. I went a few months back to Graziellas and the food potions were small even though they boast large servings. It took 7 minutes to be served water which was room temperature and the glasses were dirty. I ordered soup and was served the wrong soup when I called the waiter over to let him know there was a mistake he responded that they were out of the soup I ordered so he3 replaced it with tortalini soup. My husband's dinner was served 6 minutes before mine. His dinner was served cold. My dinner came with a side of pasta that was also cold.When I spoke to the waiter he said they were out of pasta and I should be glad I had pasta other people are waiting 20 minutes for theirs. Graziellas was a nightmare and when I told others about how my dinner went they laughed and said they heard similar stories. This summer Blue was quiet, not like in the past when it had gotten quite rowdy around 11:30. I haven't eaten at Blue because the menu doesn't appeal to me.
      I honestlyhopeWestchester Burger Co has a different owner.

        It's the same owners as Blue and Graziellall's.

          Sorry to hear that about Graziella's, I've always enjoyed that place in the past but sometimes when owners spread themselves to thin the older establishments have to pay, I hope this is not the case, I hope it was just a bad night.

      2. Passes by there today and the paper was still up on the windows...

        1. I always thought that location was catnip because it seemed parking would be quite difficult.

              It's funny how when Finn's was open it was always packed and the food was awful (obviously the bar crowd didn't care), but the place was a major flop that moved in. I think it's tough because so few people seem to know the size of the parking lot in the back and they think you have to park at the Westchester an walk.

                If the new owners are smart they will put up a sign that can be seen saying free parking in the back. Parking is a big issue in White Plains and a lot of people stay away because they don't to pay.

              1. I called their number today and they indicated they would be open on the 7th.

                  Drove by this evening and saw lights on and blackboard menus on the sidewalk - maybe they are doing a soft opening.
