It’s over-the-top at Mulino’s of Westchester in White Plains during the holidays and it begins with the bright lights and smell of chestnuts roasting at the entranceway. Take home a bag of them fresh from the roaster. The annual Christmas Holiday Fest at Mulino’s lasts right thru the season and it’s a sight to behold for the whole family.
Santa will be there live on Sunday, Dec. 22, 2013 from noon to 2:30 pm for their Holiday Open House featuring lots of toys and goodies for the children.
The fountain garden is beautiful as is the lavish dining room and bar/ lounge. General Manager Gimmy Cavagna and his staff are keeping the premises spiffy as ever: Christmas decorations galore, holiday carolers, life sized toy soldiers, the bursting colorful floral displays, the sparkling grappa and glassware collection and the handsome multi-level seating area.
If you are planning to dine, the Cold Seafood Platter is a wonder and fine to share as is their decadent version of Linguine Carbonara; plump tender Rack of Lamb served on the long bone; delicate Dover Sole; and perhaps for dessert have the wait staff whip up warm Zabaglione with fresh ripe berries tableside. And, oh that smooth Italian cheesecake.
Open 7 days thru the Holiday Fest. Bring the whole family. Valet parking. Reservations advised.
