Dining in the Stars: The Ritz-Carlton, Westchester in New York

Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the city while dining on the 42nd floor at 42 The Restaurant. Enjoy a carefully prepared menu where the natural beauty of New York that surrounds you is brought to every dish.

As a young man, my mother and father taught me that giving back to the world is more important than taking away from it. That was years ago, before I had ever touched a saucepan or handled a chef’s knife. In those days, food was about family and friends for me, a reason to get together, to share and create memories. At some point in my adolescence, I learned to draw a line between giving back to the world and my budding passion for cooking. Only then did I realize my vision for my future – to create experiences for people through food and service that would one day evoke memories of a special day at a special place. Thankfully, I was blessed with the opportunity to open 42, a space that exhibits an awesome beauty and couples perfectly with my culinary style.

In the time since 42 launched, I have made it my personal mission to develop a poetics in my cooking – to create food that mimics the provocative design of the restaurant and pays homage to the bountiful and abundant Hudson Valley. While my food draws its heritage back to my Portuguese upbringing, it is this beautiful region of New York that has allowed me to work with such fresh ingredients on a seasonal level. As I watch the seasons change from 42 stories above Westchester, I watch the metamorphosis of my food as well. It is this cyclical process that will forever be the heartbeat of my cuisine – a circle that begins with nature’s bounty and ends with culinary artistry.

– Chef Anthony Goncalves
