My family and I visited Gaucho Grill on a Sunday afternoon for a buffet brunch. Located in White Plains, New York, this upscale buffet was a true delight. Gaucho Grill is a unique restaurant which features Argentinean and Italian cuisine. As we were brought to our table, I was impressed by overall ambiance and charm of the dining area. Several crystal chandeliers were softly lit, each table had white linen table clothes with beautiful fresh roses. There was an eclectic mix of styles from classic.retro, and modern.
Upon entering Gaucho Grill, I immediately discovered the lovely display of food selections. This included a carving station, omelet and pancake station, cerviche, assortment of breads, muffins, pastries, cheeses, salads, vegetables, fresh fruit, plantain, and lovely entrees. I really enjoyed at the entrée section with pecan crusted salmon with a delicious Spanish rice. The Chicken Sorrentino was a favorite at the table along with succulent skirt steak. For healthy options and for vegetarians, there is an assortment of salads, fruits and vegetables available. I was especially pleased with the strawberry and cheese salad topped with a light vinaigrette. We ordered chicken and beef empanadas from the regular menu. Not only were the empanadas presented beautifully with a scrumptious salsa, but the empanadas themselves lived up to their expectations of “Westchester’s best empanada”.
There were cookies, cakes, and wonderful selection of pastries. After looking at the regular menu, our family decided to order homemade desserts made by the chef, Angelo Magno. This comprised of tiramisu, flan, chocolate mousse, and tres leches cake. (see above left ). The plate was presented beautifully with raspberry and chocolate sauce made in the shape of leaves on the plate. My daughter stated “this is the best flan that I have ever had.” The tiramisu was extra light and fluffy and extremely fresh. My husband and other daughter appreciated the soft tres leches cake and rich tasting chocolate mousse.
Although a buffet, the waiters are there to provide the finest and friendliest service. You must try this restaurant for a wonderful Sunday brunch that you will remember .
