The Travelers Club an oasis at Westchester County Airport By Jananne Abel


ou generally think of Westchester County Airport as a place to go if you want to catch a plane somewhere, not as a destination for dinner. But entrepreneur Sammy Eljamal is seeking to change that perception, having opened The Travelers Club in the airport terminal eight months ago.

Airport restaurants are sions at The Travelers Club, usually aimed at travelers, and he claimed the restaubut it’s not very often that rant was in his territory you build in enough time or why else would he eat when you’re traveling to a there so often.

Andy Durgaj, manager at The Travelers Club, demonstrates the making of a dessert like bananas flambé tableside. JANANNE ABEL|WESTMORE NEWS tract for all the restaurants and food establishments at the airport almost two years ago, invested at least a million dollars to completely renovate what had been a diner style restaurant into a bar, lounge and dining room with a beautiful Mediterranean feel. Eljamal has been a successful business entrepreneur since he was in his teens, starting as a Mobil franchisee at age 18 and since adding several other gasoline brands to his portfolio.

Built around the movie ‘Casablanca’ Manager Andy Durgaj said the restaurant was built around the romantic 1942

movie “Casablanca,” from the décor to the waiters wearing black and white. This film and other classics are shown Monday nights on the multiple TV screens positioned around the lounge and dining room. At other times the TV screens run a slide show of colorful drinks and food offered at The Travelers Club, and that’s okay, but my party found the occasional flash from these changing screens distracting. The dining room, which seats 80, is filled with comfortable seating—either gold velvet banquettes or chairs with leather seats—around square dark wood tables set with brown leather placemats and royal blue cloth napkins for two, four or more and

decorated with black batterypowered lanterns. Old-fashioned-looking lights on the walls branch into two and are covered by small shades draped with clear jewels. A divider between the dining room and attractive bar contains a pedestal set with a vase of fresh flowers. The dining room is carpeted while the lounge has a wood floor. Besides tall leather stools at the bar, there are low tables with upholstered chairs around them and a baby grand piano in the lounge. You forget you’re at an airport until you leave the restaurant to use the restroom or go home—at which point you are jolted back to reality. Please turn to page 6

The Travelers Club an oasis at Westchester County Airport

Continued from page 3 specials may include cannoli, fresh fruit, panna cotta and molten lava cake.

Impeccable service Besides the décor, you can’t help but be impressed by the service. From the moment you enter The Travelers Club, you are literally pampered with friendly, efficient assistance. Depending on your point of view, you might even think it is too attentive. “Service is one thing we stay on top of,” said Durgaj, who worked at Alba’s in Port Chester for more than a decade before transferring to The Travelers Club shortly after it opened. My husband and I decided to try the restaurant with another couple about 9:00 on a Saturday night which happened to be their grand opening and were immediately drawn in by both the pampering and the festive atmosphere. We later returned on two Thursday nights which were much quieter, but we received the same spectacular service. In addition to Durgaj, who oversees everything, our waiter on all three occasions was the personable and funny Royce Lane. He also works at Modern Barn in Armonk two days a week and had previous experience at restaurants in Manhattan and Miami. Manning the hostess desk outside the restaurant, at least on Saturday nights, is the lovely Ela Durgaj, Andy’s wife, who leads you into the eatery through a longish hallway.

Quality cuisine The quality of the cuisine, featuring steaks, seafood and Italian specialties, is generally outstanding and the dishes are beautifully presented. Our one complaint: the food could have been hotter across the board. Obviously we couldn’t try everything the few times we visited, so I asked Durgaj for the biggest sellers and his personal recommenda-

tions. Lobster bisque, meats, Chilean sea bass (“just the smell of it”), branzino, porcini [mushroom] risotto and skirt steak, frutta di mare, Pork Paisano with mixed peppers and onions, and Veal Chops Campagnola are some of the dishes he recommended, many of them daily specials. Chef Felix Escamilla of West Harrison, who has worked at BLT, 42 and Paparazzi in White Plains, prepares 5-6 specials a day and they usually sell out. Don’t pass up the Osso Bucco (veal shank) if it’s offered. Exceedingly tender, the meat just fell off the bone and the sauce of carrots, celery, red wine, veal demi glace, thyme, rosemary and tomato juice flavored it perfectly. In keeping with the staff ’s effort to make your stay at The Travelers Club a fine dining experience, they also provide tableside service, I learned from Durgaj. Examples include Caesar salad for two prepared tableside, although that is not on the menu or we definitely would have ordered it, fileting and deboning of a whole branzino, and bananas flambé.

Dinner for two Meals start with toasted Italian bread brought in from Arthur Avenue and a dish of extra virgin olive oil infused with oregano, garlic and crushed red pepper by the chef to give it a nice kick. Except for the fact that the lobster bisque ($11) was not piping hot, it was exceptional with its creamy, delicate flavor. Served in a large wide bowl, the seafood soup was finished with a dollop of tarragon crème fraiche and a mouthful of Maine lobster. I was delighted with the special compo salad of mesclun greens, strawberries, dried cranberries, walnuts, crumbled gorgonzola and thick, tasty balsamic dressing. The Salmon Marechiara special brought a good-sized piece of fish overcome with mussels and clams in the shell as well as calamari, all in a chunky marinara sauce. I am still raving about the tender, savory grilled skirt steak in a chimichurri sauce ($27) made with olive oil, garlic, parsley, cilantro, shallots, sherry wine vinegar and balsamic reduction. It was served with elegant Pommes Parisiennes, small, round potatoes pan fried in clarified butter until golden and crispy. When you order a steak of any kind, you get what I would call a substantial steak knife to cut it with. Plates were beautifully presented and decorated with pink orchids. We accompanied our meals with a glass of red and a glass of white wine, both priced at $10 and both of good quality. For dessert, the chocolate mousse—good but not great— was also nicely presented in a small glass dish with whipped cream in the middle and chocolate shavings on top. We had a Groupon, which included two soups or salads,

two entrées and one dessert, for which we had paid $51. Our check totaled $130, so we owed $18 for one singlemalt scotch ($12) and the two glasses of wine ($20) after the $14 was subtracted for parking, a real bargain.

The Travelers Club is open Monday to Thursday from 12-9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 12-10 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. for brunch. Lunch runs from 12-4 and dinner from 4 p.m. until closing. The lunch menu is similar to dinner except it offers smaller portions and lower prices. A three-course brunch costs $19.99 per person and includes a starter salad or fresh fruit plate, entrée of a Belgian waffle, a Harvest Frittata, Eggs Benedict, smoked salmon on a bagel, skirt steak or hash and eggs, Penne Primavera, dessert and coffee or tea. There is also an a la carte brunch menu with more lunch/dinner type offerings.

Small wine list The Travelers Club has a small but excellent list of wines by the glass, half bottle and bottle. On our second visit we went with the manager’s recommendation of Ramsden Estates cabernet sauvignon ($50). It cost more than we usually spend but proved an excellent choice—exceptionally smooth, dry and flavorful.

Desserts not remarkable Besides the bananas flambé, desserts are not homemade and therefore not remarkable. In addition to chocolate mousse, New York cheesecake, blood orange mascarpone cheesecake, crème brulée, tiramisu and tartuffo are usually available. Weekly

perform on Saturday nights and sprucing up the entryway—which Durgaj called “a work in progress”—with columns and curtains similar to those found inside.

An offer you can’t pass up With the type of cuisine and service The Travelers Club provides its customers, buying a Groupon and using it for brunch or dinner while business is ramping up is money well spent. You really can’t afford not to take advantage of the offer. I plan to return soon because eating at The Travelers Club is such a pleasant experience and there are so many other dishes I want to try—including all that the brunch has to offer.

Heartland Brewery Group investing $5M at Port Chester train station By Jananne Abel Since last month’s writeup about the six new restaurants under construction in Port Chester, I have gotten additional information about the Port Chester Hall & Garden at the historic Port Chester train station and witnessed the progress that has been made there. Most remarkable of all is the amount of money Heartland Brewery Group is spending to transform the station into a restaurant, beer pavilion and garden—a whopping $5 million, according to Tyler Sullivan, marketing manager. As I said last month, it has been a massive undertaking which has included removing asbestos from the roof, installing new water lines, crafting the pavilion and most recently building a huge stone fireplace. And I know that’s only the half of it. The restaurant and beer garden are expected to open in mid-May. According to Sullivan, this was owner Jon Bloostein’s dream project. “He has always wanted to have a beer garden and now he has an indoor space with an indoor/outdoor space with an outdoor space. To him it is a win, win, win—a triple

Work continues at the Port Chester train station to transform it into a restaurant, beer pavilion and beer garden. The huge stone fireplace in the foreground is the latest addition. JANANNE ABEL|WESTMORE NEWS

win, a trifecta.” The pavilion, which incorporates the original railroad steel design, will be open but also have the capability of being enclosed and heated during the cold weather for private events. The restaurant inside the original station will seat about 125, the beer pavilion about 100 and the beer garden will have flexible seating. Asked about the name Port Chester Hall instead of Port Chester Beer Hall,

which could have people confusing it with the Port Chester Village Hall, for instance, Sullivan said that “though beer is a big part of the venue, we have an extensive food menu as well as a wide selection of specialty cocktails and wines. The name aims to not be exclusive to any one group and to make all feel welcome.” Although I had previously heard otherwise from various sources, Sullivan said 50 spaces in the commuter lot

on Broad Street are going to be dedicated to Port Chester Hall. The restaurant will operate a coffee stand from 6-11 a.m. to serve morning commuters and the ticket booth, which has been housed in a trailer during construction, will be moved back into the building. As a tenant in the Metro-North train station paying monthly rent, Port Chester Hall will be responsible for maintaining the station, pavilion, garden and

sidewalk area in front of the station. Hopefully with all of the money Heartland Brewery Group is investing, MetroNorth will be incentivized to spruce up the rest of their property surrounding it, although I was told some time ago by a spokesperson that they didn’t plan to. As an example of Metro-North’s lack of upkeep, years ago they removed hedges and installed pipes along Broad Street and never replaced them with any plantings, instead just allowing the depressed space, which is even dangerous to walk across, to fill in with weeds. In addition, there haven’t been any curbs along the edge of their property in front of the station for at least 30 years. The Capitol Theatre is working on an agreement with Metro-North to install a fence and some plantings at the corner of the MetroNorth property closest to the theatre (Broad Street and Westchester Avenue) at the Capitol’s expense. Basically Metro-North has not been a good neighbor to Port Chester and it is taking private money to make their property the showcase it should be to people entering the village via rail.

P.C. Applebee’s closing catches people off guard By Jananne Abel Applebee’s in The Waterfront at Port Chester complex at 42 Westchester Ave. closed suddenly without notice on Monday, Apr. 21.

A stop work order notice was taped to the front door by the Port Chester Building Department when it was discovered that demolition work including the removal of electrical and plumbing devices was being done without a permit. CLAIRE K RACINE|WESTMORE NEWS

The fire alarm went off that afternoon, forcing the evacuation of the entire building, including the Loews movie theaters above. Employees went into work and were surprised to find the restaurant being dismantled. A stop work order notice was taped to the front door by the Port Chester Building Department. According to an e-mail from Building Inspector Peter Miley, work was stopped because “demolition and the removal of electrical/plumbing devices requires a permit so as not to leave a dangerous condition i.e. live dead end wiring, gas lines and/or plumbing waste lines.” A sign taped in the window bearing the Applebee’s logo, however, stated something completely different. “Valued Guests & Neighbors,” it read. “We are currently closed for a training session. Apologies for any inconvenience you may have experienced.”

Applebee’s restaurant in The Waterfront at Port Chester complex at 42 Westchester Ave. closed suddenly on Apr. 21. RICHARD ABEL|WESTMORE NEWS A bartender at J T Straw’s Bar & Grill on North Main Street, who also worked at Applebee’s, said she showed up for work on Apr. 21 and found the space being taken apart. She picked up her check and was told she would be transferred to the Applebee’s in White Plains. She felt sorry for people for whom

the job was their main source of income. Several messages were left for Steve at Apple-Metro Inc. in Harrison, owners of the New York area-based Applebee’s restaurants, who, according to the company operator had knowledge about the Port Chester store, but none were returned.

According to several accounts, business volume at the Port Chester Applebee’s was far less than at other restaurants in the chain and other comparable eateries. Apparently the closing of the makeshift parking lot across the street by the village put the final nail in the eatery’s coffin.
