Mediterraneo opens in White Plains

Good things really do come to those who wait.

After his glass-paneled building at the corner of Renaissance Square and Main Street has sat vacant for the better part of a decade, developer Louis Cappelli of Cappelli Enterprises said he has finally found the perfect tenant for the architecturally unique building in White Plains.

The Z Hospitality Group, owner of eight other area restaurants including Aurora in Rye and Terra in Greenwich, opened Mediterreaneo of White Plains at 189 Main St. earlier this month.

The building’s distinctive architecture and diamond-shaped glass panels intrigued Z Hospitality owner Ramze Zakka.

“I looked at the building, and I said, ‘What a magnificent building. Why has anybody not moved on this space?’” he said, adding that the restaurant opening has been “a great opportunity, and it has worked out well.”

Executive Chef Albert DeAngelis, who has been with Z Hospitality for more than 20 years, is the man behind the Mediterranean cuisine served at the new White Plains restaurant, which features a signature open kitchen and wood-burning oven, a glass elevator and an inviting private dining room that seats up to 30 people. Among its offerings, the restaurant will serve wood-oven cooked pizzas, branzino and chicken, homemade pastas and farm-to-table seafood and vegetables.
