Truxton’s is brightening up the chow-wasteland that is Westchester, reports Mr Grub. It’s an “American bistro,” which is restaurant code for upscale comfort food. Burgers are excellent, mac and cheese very good. There’s spaghetti and meatballs, if you like. The Argentine skirt steak may not be American in the sense we were thinking, but hey, it’s great. Vietnamese avocado spring roll, on the other hand, is inexplicable and nearly inedible.

There are lots of generous salad choices, plus a well-proportioned bar and accessible wine list.

Big windows and an open floor plan give the place an airy feel, and prices are within the cost-conscious neighborhood’s comfort level.
