Ran into Blue tonight for a quick dinner. Had stopped going quite some time ago as their kitchen really declined. Well SURPRISE!!! New chef, Matt Kay, is working IT!!! Decor is the same. Service was very good, although only 4 tables dining. Bar was empty for a Thurs at 8pm (could have been due to impending storm). The chef and maitre 'd were gracious. Chef appeared several times. We started with edamame dumplings w truffle oil essence. The dumpling wrap was thin yet not flimsy. Delish! Kobe burger sliders were perfectly cooked as requested.. very tasty...large portion The wasabi ahi tuna entree had a perfectly crunchy crust served atop edamame and mushroom . The pistachio crusted salmon was perfectly seasoned with a beautiful presentation. Overall, a very unexpected pleasant surprise. Maybe all is not lost in White Plains, after all.

I ate there last night. Same 4 owners, only the name and interior have changed. The menu is starters, salad, pasta, and pizza. The owners are all young and from Napoli. The pizza oven (the centerpiece of the restaurant) is autthentic and brought over from Napoli. The Margherita pizza I had tasted good...authentic. The minstrone was well seasoned with very large chunks of veggies. My daughter ate linguine con le vongole....prepared well. Sidewalk seating was also a plus on a really beautiful evening.
