Scarsdale - New Places Coming On Line Soon

It seems as if we have a number of new places in various stages of construction in the Scarsdale vicinity:

Hurricane Wings and Grill (in former Mitty's location)
Steakhouse(?) in former Mighty Joe Young's location
El Dorado 3 (for Tony Roma's/Brazilian location)
Fig and Olive
Haiku (next to Old Navy)
Candlelight Inn takeout

Anything I'm forgetting?

Nothing here is earth shattering (fig and olive and the candlelight expansion excluded) - any other thoughts/comments?

Candlelight Inn
519 Central Park Ave, Scarsdale, NY 10583

El Dorado Restaurant
542 N Main St, Brewster, NY 10509

Mighty Joe Young's
610 W. Hartsdale Ave, White Plains, NY 10607

  1. Not a restaurant but... I will add that there is the new Shoprite on Central Ave whick looks massive. They have some sort of bar (coffee or something along those lines) in the store now. I've never been in a Shopite, so I'm not sure what to expect.

      Yes, Shoprite's are all pretty large. Much nicer than A&P and Pathmark. Better prices than Stop & Shop.

      1. re: MisterBill2

        Any idea when Shoprite is slated to open? The website says "Coming Soon" and the sign on the building is lit, but there are no shopping carts in the lot and no notice of it's opening--save for the "Coning in Fall 2010" sign.

        1. re: iluvcookies

          I think this week. We drove up to it last Sunday, just as the snow was starting to come down hard, and the sign in the window said that it was opening the first week of January. The windows were mostly covered but the shelves were definitely stocked.

          1. re: iluvcookies

            A sign in the window states the opening date as Janurary 5th

            1. re: chowdom

              Yes, both the Scarsdale and White Plains Shoprites are opening on Wednesday. There was a page in the Journal News on Sunday.

              They advertise that they will have kosher meats. If someone goes and thinks to look, please let me know what they have. Curious to know if it will be something more than Empire poultry.

                1. re: chowdom

                  I assume they will be selling the pre-packaged kosher meats, not doing it themselves. Fairway is the only big supermarket that I am aware of that does that, and they tell you on the package who their hashgacha is from (actually, Shoprite in Plainview, LI has their own kosher butcher as well).

                2. re: MisterBill2

                  Stopped in at the White Plains store on my way to work--it's massive. I don't know about kosher items, but they did have a decent selection of D'Artagnan products including duck leg confit and merguez. We live close to the Scarsdale store, so that will be next on the list.

                  1. re: Maryld

                    Isn't this White Plains store where Target is? I would think it's kind of annoying to park in the garage to go food shopping, but then again I guess it's not that different from shopping at Target.

                    1. re: valerie

                      Yes, it's the floor right above Barnes & Noble. I'm assuming that there is an elevator going to that floor can handle carts??

                      1. re: Maryld

                        parking is free with a receipt from shop rite.

                        1. re: kaaaassss

                          Is it free or do they give you a coupon on your next order I read something online which implied it was the latter. And is the coupon good at any Shoprite or only at the WP location?

        2. The place called Masseria in the former Heathcote Tavern/Backal's location.

          1. re: valerie

            and what will it be called 3 moths later?. while i wish them luck and hope they succeed (it looks like it would be a good go to locally. i don't think anything can succeed there . *not jinxed* just really a poor location, the back lot is difficult to use and get in and out of, yhis is not la and ppl. do not want valet service. and walking to it from the other lots, which don't want you parking in the first place is tough, the 12 second run across weaver is ill advised. and the inside is a hodge podge of levels and rooms. btw i live less than a mile away (for 50 odd years). the only time they did well was when hookers were availabe *G*

            1. re: valerie

              saw the sign yesterday with a website, but can't find the website. What kind of place is it going to be?

              1. re: jhopp217

                Passed by yesterday, the sign says MASSA'
                Yes, the apostrophe is on the sign just like I typed it.

              2. Don't forget Tengda on Garth Rd. I think the Tengda in Katonah is actually pretty good by Westchester standards and will a nice addition to the area.

                  I have been wondering about Tengda on Garth Road because it seems like there has been brown paper and work permits in the windows for months and months. But it never looks like anything is getting done inside. Do you have any idea when it is supposed to open?

                2. Here is some info on some places mentioned here plus a few others....


                  1. IT looks like a Japanese steak house at the old Mighty Joe Young locatx. Should be a nice change, not much else in that area.

                    Mighty Joe Young's
                    610 W. Hartsdale Ave, White Plains, NY 10607

                      there is a steakhouse coming to the old mighty joe youngs. two guys from peter lugars.

                      1. re: kaaaassss

                        Does anyone know about the parking situation for the new Shop Rite in downtown WP? Will you have to pay as you currently do (which is a drag to go grocery shopping) or will they validate like Whole Foods, or will they just make the whole garage free <g> ?

                        1. re: Dim Sum Diva

                          I think they will be giving out some type of dollars-off coupon to compensate for the parking cost.

                          I'm looking forward to checking out the new store on Central Ave. I will be very happy if I can stop shopping at the A&P (home of the world's narrowest aisles).

                          1. re: scarsdalesurprise

                            I read something which said they'd give you a coupon for your next order with a $20 purchase. I'd be curious to know how it works
