Mulberry restaurant on Post Road is closed with a sign stating opening soon. I understand that Par took back the space and Moses from Tango Grill and Gaucho Grill is now going to be working with him. I don't know if they are changing the name or decor but i was told it is going to be Italian and will reopen on Thursday.

    Wow, that was fast!! Friends ate there a month or so ago and were not impressed.

      We ate there when it first opened and I am surprised it lasted this long. There was nothing good to report from our visit except that our server happened to be very friendly. We were underwhelmed- to be polite.

        Ditto. Mediocre Italian-American food you could get anywhere else in WP, and overpriced to boot.

        Appears it will be called Taleggio Italiano Classico, according to Open Table. No other info yet.

          Saw Moses in front of the restaurant Monday. He is partners with Par from Eclisse and they are planning an "authentic" upscale Italian restaurant.

            That remains to be seen ;-)

            Where is that? DUH - never mind. Couldn't remove it once I did it.

              Enjoyed a lovely early dinner at Taleggio last night. They offered a restaurant week menu with many choices, but we ordered off the regular menu. Food was delicious (started with terrific bread), and reasonably priced and portioned. Service was friendly and professional, and the restaurant is beautiful--large and tastefully decorated. White Plains parking is tough, but they offer free valet parking. Upon leaving, we were provided with a $25 off coupon for next time--which there will be!

                "Westchester's Flagship Restaurant." Say what?
                On the other hand, 1) at least they have a website; 2) with prices; 3) and if the food's good, they can make any hyperbolic statement they so desire.
                I will put Taleggio on my list, and thank you, Marge.

                  Haha, I didn't notice the flagship restaurant claim...not a destination restaurant, but certainly recommend for a nice dinner if you are in the area!

                  Had dinner there with friends a couple of weeks ago on a Sat. They were, of course, recently opened. Waiter was good, but food SERVERS were totally fouled up, which we excused (and even found hilarious) since they were new and, we figured, working out training kinks. And, yes, the food was quite good -- and we thought, if this keeps up, we've got a new regular go-to place. But then came time to pay the bill. We had a "Double Take" coupon, which, it turned out, had in very small print, a proviso that one had to be seated by 5pm to use on Sat. Even the server sent to give us the bad news, required a few minutes fo find it.
                  The managers were adamant about not honoring it (and apparently there were several other customers who hadn't noticed the fine print.) One of their arguments was that they "had a contract" with the coupon issuing people and, therefore, couldn't ignore this proviso, as if the Double Take people would care. They were doing a lively business, but we were clearly not keeping anyone else away. It seemed to be rather odd customer relations for a restaurant located in a place that has been unable to keep predecessors operating for very long. And, of course, we will not be back.
