Review - Cholo's Kitchen New Rochelle (skip the Mexican places!)

MarkD | Oct 3, 2008 12:00 PM

On Lawton right off Main St. in New Rochelle. We went there on a whim last night - it's fairly charming in a modest way with lots of nicely done container plantings and cheerful color scheme. Service was friendly and informal and prompt, food was served very quickly. I had a very good fried beef dish served over french fries with rice - it was very well flavored and I ate every last bit. My wife had a fried chicken cutlet that was extremely well executed (surprisingly tricky to get this right - I use veal parmigiana as a litmus test for Italian restaurants, and this is comparable) - nicely flavored, light and straight from the fryer. Low point of the meal was lousy Peruvian beer (Cristal), which clearly isn't the restaurant's fault.

Very good restaurant - I highly recommend and will return - it's much better than the various Mexican restaurants that line Main St, which I usually find disappointing.
