To Americans, a burger usually means beef, but Italian chefs aren't so restricted by the shackles of convention. In fact, chefs at White Plains' Taleggio Italiano Classico completely reinvent the American burger by swapping out beef for seafood. It's known as the lobster and crab burger, and local fans highly recommend it.
Seafood comes many more ways at Taleggio, from broiled salmon to Chilean sea bass in white wine and capers. This upscale eatery also offers a decent selection of steak, veal, and chicken. For some more authentically Italian eats, order a dish of pasta or perhaps a bubbling pizza. There are even a handful of vegetarian options, including a tropical salad with mango, pear, apple, and other sweet fruits in a passion fruit raspberry vinaigrette.
Many of the dishes incorporate Taleggio cheese, the restaurant's namesake. Historically, true Taleggio cheese came branded with a "T" that ensure its authenticity. But at Taleggio Italiano Classico, that promise of authenticity is innate to every plate.
