early birds and kitchen counter meals

Genial hosts Ernesto Capalbo and Charlie Gambino of Ernesto’s Ristorante have given the restaurant a fresh contemporized look. The sparkling bar area offers happy hours Tuesday thru Saturday, 3 to 7 pm with reasonably priced beers, wines and $5 martinis; Thursday & Fridays, half price appetizers, too.

It is a good venue for networking. There is Kitchen Counter lunch for $10.95 served Tuesday thru Friday from noon to 3 pm, and three-course early bird dinners are served 3 pm to 6 pm Tuesday thru Friday priced at a reasonable $17.95. The regular Italian-American menu is always available as are private party facilities for up to 75 guests.

Let the veteran floor staff led by Elio, Geovan and Juan see to your needs.

Ernesto moved his popular pizza shop down to the corner and named it Pizza Cucina (102 Post Rd., White Plains; 914-752-4611), where you can still get all your favorites fresh-made. Ernesto’s: 130 W. Post Road, White Plains; 914-421-1414; Free and municipal parking; ernestosristorante.com
