The Club Car opened its doors a few months ago in Mamaroneck NY. The restaurant has received rave reviews. But for me, it is the restoration of the magnificent 1888 Romanesque building that steals the show. The building had been boarded up and deteriorating for what seemed like forever. The condition reminded me of the Tarrytown Music Hall in my youth. People shook their heads and discussions of tearing down the Music Hall were openly discussed. The restoration that ensued was well worth the effort and the same is true for the Mamaroneck NY terminal building.
I stopped by today only to get some exterior shots. The one above, though not of the entire building shows the architectural detail the best. It shows the arched Romanesque forms, the stained glass and the carved moldings better than anything I took of the entire building. Perhaps in this case, less is more.
This restaurant is high on my list of places to visit in the immediate future. It sounds like an amazing experience for a special night on the town.
