They’ve got two locations with this one in Westchester having been around for ten years. They tout themselves as an American bistro that reinvents/reinterprets classics and that’s pretty much what you’ll find on their menu. Plenty of familiar small plates, burgers, salads, and entrees take on ethnic twists to form a menu with a little bit of everything.
The doughy, soft monkey bread ($4.98) was a good way to start the meal, along with its marinara, garlic butter and ranch dipping sauces. The Portland burger ($12.85) was one of the better burgers I’ve had recently. The spongey brioche bun held up well to the other ingredients, and there were plenty of them. The patty was thick and juicy and topped with mushrooms, fontina cheese, lettuce, caramelized onions, garlic mayo and a balsamic glaze. If you want to skip the carbs, the El Paso burger plate ($14.45) is a good option. Sans bun, a beef patty on a bed of shredded lettuce was topped with pepper jack cheese, guacamole, poblano corn salsa and chipotle mayo. It has just enough kick to enhance the flavor without destroying your taste buds.
With a kids menu, Truxton’s is a family-friendly spot, too. Their food isn’t groundbreaking, but they do just enough to make it a worthwhile spot to dine when in the area.
