Plates Restaurant Review

: If there is a recipe for restaurant success, Matthew Karp and wife Wendy Weinstein are following it. Owner-chef and marketing director, respectively, of Plates in Larchmont, the duo personify the culinary power couple in Westchester. Part business savvy, part nostalgia, the plates de nome are the forty from around the globe that adorn various parts of the restaurant --- some from as far away as Russia, others from their children's play kitchens. An American menu with the occasional diversion into the funky is highlighted by fresh staples: fish and meat. The artfully arrayed foie gras torchon is pungent with a buttery texture, while the mini smoked beef short rib and brisket tacos are crispy with zing and spice. A hearty smoked Berkshire pork chop with bok choy, prunes and garlic caraway spätzle demonstrates a harmonious collaboration of different flavors, while the Plates buttermilk fried chicken with candied bacon Brussels sprouts, gravy and sweet potato purée pays homage to Southern American traditions. Desserts dabble further in the avant-garde with the giant Ring Ding, and two homemade cinnamon donuts accented by vanilla gelato. The wine list features artisanal and world-recognized labels that stand up to the menu. A bottomless barbecue brunch on Sundays underscores the restaurant's comfort food expertise and reveals its alternate casual side.
