THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Trotters Restaurant Review: With a perplexing name and a location easy to miss, Trotters (named after the owner's grandfather's love of race horses) did not initially garner the accolades and respect it deserved. But no more. Chef Anthony Goncalves has thought of everything: an ample wine list, comfortable décor and impeccable service. But nowhere is his vision better executed than in the just-short-of-divine nine-course chef's tasting menu with accompanying wines. Beginning with a smoky salmon mousse parfait drizzled with Bordeaux jelly and culminating with a decadent chocolate soufflé capper you are almost too stuffed to enjoy, no dish seems lost in the suburbs, or jealous of a citified locale. Other highlights include porcini-dusted yellowfin tuna paired with a chilled Japanese sake; and pan-seared foie gras over toasted brioche and served with generous shavings of black truffles alongside a black truffle soup with white truffle foam. Part seductive lounge, dressed with plush draperies and velvet couches, part smartly decorated dining room, Trotters is a bright spot on the White Plains radar.
