John’s of Arthur Avenue Restaurant & Pizzeria

New neighborhood pizzeria a worthy replacement for P&D



im Gould and his wife Diane are aiming to bring the P&D Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria location back to its former glory with the opening of their new restaurant on the Port Chester/Rye Brook border at 508 Westchester Ave. John’s of Arthur Avenue Restaurant & Pizzeria offers an array of pizza styles and family style dining using top notch ingredients at this spot which has for decades been a neighborhood pizzeria. “There’s such a history in this place here,” said Jim during an interview this week. Customers tell him they used to go to P&D with their grandfather and now they are bringing their kids. “People couldn’t wait for us to open. It’s just a nice neighborhood place to come.” Besides offering good food made with high quality ingredients, Jim is intent on hiring local people and providing friendly, accommodating service. John’s opened Aug. 24 and Jim has been there every day. “I can’t stay away,” he admitted. “It’s my passion right now. I want it to be the best it can be and I know I’ve got to be here.” Even the two days after Superstorm Sandy when the shopping strip where it’s located and most of Port Chester and Rye Brook were without power, John’s was using its gas-fired pizza ovens and serving food by candlelight.

If someone calls or comes in five minutes before closing, they’ll be taken care of. Jim said that person will be grateful and return the next time they’re hungry. Gould even follows up on deliveries (they deliver for a $2 service charge) to make sure the customers were satisfied with the food and service. My husband and I visited John’s shortly after their opening when there were only a few customers and have been back several times in recent weeks when it was bustling with both couples and families and we saw many people we knew, including local restaurateurs. “It’s a compliment that restaurant people come,” said Jim, telling his own story about a renowned Rye Brook chef who came by one night for pizza and gave him his card. I certainly haven’t tried everything at John’s, but what I have had so far has

Owner Jim Gould serves pizza to lunchtime customers at John’s of Arthur Avenue Restaurant & Pizzeria in Port Chester. been excellent and worthy of recommendation. Salads, pastas and entrées come in two or three sizes so you can get an individual portion, a large portion for two or a family-sized portion for three or four. As a bonus right now since John’s of Arthur Avenue doesn’t yet have its beer and wine license, customers are invited to bring their own bottle of wine and are charged a $5 corkage fee. If you forget to bring a bottle from home, you can go next door to The Wine Gallery and get a 10% discount on a bottle of wine to drink with your meal at the restaurant.

Local staff

High quality ingredients used in the Italian preparations at John’s of Arthur Avenue are on display on racks in the dining room.

All but two of the staff at John’s live in Port Chester or Rye Brook, Jim remarks proudly. One of the out-oftowners is manager Felix Estrada of Mamaroneck, who worked as the pizza man at the original P&D for two years and stayed on when new owner Rick Yandoli took over in December 2009 until the restaurant closed at the end of February 2012. When Jim was in the market for a pizzeria, he came across this place and was already familiar with it. He ran into Estrada who at this point was working at a pizzeria in White Plains. Estrada put Jim in touch with Steve Zafrin and Pete Desimini, who

had owned and operated P&D for 37 years before they decided it was time to retire. Besides making pizza, Estrada also cooks, said Gould. “He’s able to do everything. I can’t tell you how valuable he is. He has an unbelievable personality with the customers. They love him.” Gould has also hired Christian Sanchez of Port Chester as the chef. He, too, had cooked at P&D for five years. A new addition is host Angus Cooper, who lives across the street in the senior housing on Bowman Avenue. He was the maitre d’ at Tavern on the Green for many years and also owned several restaurants, said Gould. He works Friday, Saturday and sometimes Sunday nights and “adds a nice touch.” A friendly gent, he remembered my husband from one visit to the next. The waiters and waitresses are friendly young men and women, some more experienced than others, who aim to please. Gould is a retired probation officer from Orange County, a town called Wawawanda about 70 minutes away. In recent days he has been staying at his daughter’s co-op in White Plains to reduce the commute. His first job at the age of 10 was in a pizzeria and over the years he has worked in restaurants as a busboy,

waiter and bartender. “I kind of knew that someday this was something I’d like to do,” Gould said. Retirement at a young age provided the perfect opportunity. Now he’s working harder than ever.

What’s with the name?

John’s of Arthur Avenue actually did start out in that famous Italian neighborhood in the Bronx. It moved from Arthur Avenue to Middletown, N.Y. six years ago and Gould’s son Kevin, 25, bought it a year and a half ago. Kevin is also a partner in the second location in Milford, Pa. Jim and his wife Diane opened the third location in Port Chester. Diane, who works fulltime for the New York State court system, waitresses in Port Chester Thursday through Saturday. Some of the recipes for items on the current menu, such as Grandma’s Meatballs, do go back to the original John’s on Arthur Avenue. These tasty gems (3 for $6.95, 6 for $12.95) are made with pecorino and basil and are covered with fresh ricotta and homemade tomato sauce. Otherwise, however, Jim, Please turn to page 8

New neighborhood pizzeria a worthy replacement for P&D being Irish-German and not Italian, hired a consultant to assist with the menu and provide some of the recipes. “I worked for three months with him,” he said.


John’s is known for its stadium pizza, a 24” oversized pie ($22.95 for cheese, $4 for each extra topping). “The boxes just fit out the door,” Gould said. Most people have it cut into 16 slices. While John’s serves Arthur Avenue style, Naples style, Grandma’s and Sicilian pizza, only the former comes in this oversized version. Other sizes include a 12” personal pizza (plenty for two) and a 16” large pie. A 12” gluten free pizza is also available for an additional $4. Besides the stadium pizza, if he had to pick two items on the menu to highlight, Gould said it would be the eggplant appetizer and the Grandma’s Sicilian pie, both original John’s of Arthur Avenue recipes. The former consists of eggplant cutlets, tomato sauce, Parmigiano Reggiano and fresh basil at $7.95. Grandma’s, indeed extra special, is thin-crusted, crunchy

Owner Jim Gould of Orange County (center), flanked by manager Felix Estrada of Mamaroneck (left) and chef Christian Sanchez of Port Chester, displays one of the large boxes that holds John’s of Arthur Avenue’s 24” stadium pizza. virgin olive oil, cans of garbanzo beans, bags of pasta and other ingredients are displayed on racks as you enter the restaurant. They’re for sale, said Gould, but mostly he wanted to display the high end ingredients they use.

The dining room features colorful tablecloths, a new hardwood floor and the space’s original tin ceiling that was uncovered and repaired. Sicilian pan pizza topped with plum tomatoes, chunks of fresh mozzarella and fresh basil ($3.95 for a slice, $12.95 for a personal 12” pie, $19.95 for a 16” pie). Jim said he eats one slice a day. Entrées and pasta dishes come with yummy rosemary focaccia in a red plastic basket. It’s made with pizza dough, rosemary, olive oil and a little salt—delicious when it’s piping hot, but it gets cold and hard quickly, so dig in! All of the sandwich breads come from the famous Terranova Bakery on Arthur Avenue. Gould notes that two things make John’s different from other pizzerias: they use Stanislaus tomatoes, the oldest Italianowned tomato company in the country, and Grande cheese. He feels these superior ingredients make a difference. Large cans of tomatoes, bags of flour, jugs of imported extra

Things I recommend

I loved everything we had at our first meal at John’s of Arthur Avenue where my husband and I split each course and had more than enough to eat. The Arthur Avenue Special Salad ($10.95 for large) provided a hearty meal in itself of romaine lettuce, sliced salami, pepperoni, sliced provolone, chickpeas (these were missing), pepperoncini, calamata olives, pickled red onions and cherry tomatoes tossed in red wine vinaigrette. We also had the 6-piece Baked Clams Oreganata ($8.95) which brought a whole clam in each shell topped with bread crumbs, garlic and oil, a saucier presentation than other versions of this recipe I’ve had but nonetheless savory.

For the main meal we chose the Spaghetti with Clams ($15.95) which produced 13 whole little necks, most of them large, on top of a medium-sized portion of perfectly-cooked spaghetti in a delicious sauce of garlic, olive oil and clam juice. It came with a metal spaghetti server for portioning. This meal priced out at $38.49 without tip. On another occasion we ordered two personal pizzas in different styles: one Arthur Avenue style pie with meatballs ($9.95), which is thicker than the thin and crunchy Naples style. The artichoke basil personal pie ($12.95) was topped with artichoke-parmesan cream sauce, artichoke hearts, basil and pecorino. Both had excellent flavor, but I preferred the thinner Naples version. The Penne all Vodka ($10.95) ordered on a third visit was more orange-colored than I’ve seen before but still scrumptious tossed in a sauce made with prosciutto, shallots, basil, tomatoes and cream. The Chicken Scarpariello ($14.95) was made with large chunks of skinless, boneless sautéed chicken, thick slices of sausage, red and green hot vinegar peppers and was served

over a small portion of spaghetti, a wonderful option to capture some of the spicy sauce. Bringing home plenty of leftovers so we’d have room for dessert, we split the Blackout Cake, a creamy wedge of chocolate with a thin, moist chocolate cake base and an extra thin layer of hard chocolate on top ($4.50). If you’re a chocolate lover, this cake is to die for! It was served on a plate dusted with powdered sugar. Other desserts include house made cannoli and tiramisu as well as churros. Cheesecake will probably be added in the future. Besides soda and coffee, John’s sells a lot of Pellegrino and I happened to spot on the takeout menu that they also offer Italian lemonade which is made in-house and served with a sprig of fresh basil. That’s on my list to try at a future date. Down the road Gould expects to get an espresso and cappuccino machine.

Spruced up decor

P&D was never fancy, and neither is John’s of Arthur Avenue. However, the new

Continued from page 6 owners did make an effort to spruce up the place by installing new shiny hardwood floors, exposing and repairing the original silver tin ceiling that had been covered up and reconditioning the red booths which are still pretty lumpy and uncomfortable. Besides the six booths along the walls, there are also large tables for six in the dining room which seats a total of 65. Tables are covered with brightly-colored plastic cloths bearing an Italian food theme: red and green peppers, olive oil containers, garlic, olives and wine in a wicker basket. S. Pellegrino sparkling water bottles decorate each table. The racks of ingredients toward the door add to the Italian-flavored decor. Stucco walls are painted green on top and covered with white wainscoting below. Limited wall space features an ornately framed mirror and a black-framed print of a pizzeria in Italy. White lace curtains hang on the bottom half of the large storefront windows and at two smaller windows between the dining room and the private party room that can accommodate 25-30 people next door. Seating for four is also available at the blond wood counter at the back of the restaurant where a pizza display case was added as well as two new Marsal 6-pie ovens. John’s of Arthur Avenue is brightly lit with an unremarkable collection of fixtures including a chandelier in the center and other hanging lights over the booths. A new sign similar to the old one should be up soon following approval by the Port Chester Architectural Board of Review.

Hours, parking

John’s of Arthur Avenue is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 9 p.m. Free convenient parking is available on the street or in the lot adjacent to the strip of stores at the intersection of Westchester and Bowman avenues in which the restaurant is located.

A bicyclist passes John’s of Arthur Avenue Restaurant & Pizzeria at 508 Westchester Ave., the former location of P&D Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria, which opened Aug. 24.

Westmore News, Friday, November 16, 2012

History of the Thanksgiving parade Thousands of people line the streets of midtown Manhattan every year to catch a glimpse of the balloons and performers marching in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Millions more will tune in to watch it on television. The Macy’s parade is intertwined with Thanksgiving, making it as much a part of the holiday as turkey and pumpkin pie. The parade has evolved throughout the years, and its history is both interesting and informational. Historians believe the parade was instituted by European immigrants who made up the majority of employees at the retail giant Macy’s. In the 1920s, employees who were now proud Americans wanted to celebrate with traditions that were similar to those in Europe. This included a parade down the streets. Animals were borrowed from the Central Park Zoo, bands played and marchers wore different costumes.

In 1927, concern for children lining the parade route led parade officials to replace live animals with the signature helium balloons people now know and love. A dragon and Felix the Cat were some of the first balloons. The festivities continued to grow during the 1930s, when Santa was added to the parade’s growing list of participants. 1933 was the only year Santa led the parade rather than closed it. During World War II, the parade was put on hiatus, as the rubber for the balloons and the helium were donated to the war effort. The parade resumed in 1945 and was televised only in New York. The 1947 film “Miracle on 34th Street” made the parade even more popular. NBC televised the parade nationwide the following year, drawing viewers from all over the country.

Avoid crowds by shopping smart

The gift of volunteerism for the holidays Donating is a popular way to show appreciation during the holiday season, but not every household has the funds to donate this year. In lieu of making a financial donation, a gift of time and service is just as valuable. Research indicates that 50 percent of charitable donations are made between Thanksgiving and Christmas. During the season of hospitality and togetherness, making charitable donations is everpresent in many people’s minds. However, financial insecurity due to the sluggish job market and economy will likely result in more people hoping to volunteer their time instead of their finances this holiday season. Volunteering one’s time is a way to give back without expending funds. Just as charities and other organizations are in need of money to operate their causes, they also need manpower to put plans in action. Busy people may think they don’t have the time to volunteer, but this is not the case. According to Charity Guide, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting flexible volunteerism by inspiring and facilitating acts of kindness, volunteer work can take as little as 15 minutes per week and be based on a flexible schedule. When considering volunteerism, individuals can pick a cause that is dear to their heart. Organizations that raise awareness about medical conditions to animal rights groups are all charities that can use assistance. Here are some ways the average person can volunteer service: •  Business owners who provide a particular product or service can donate such items to the charity. For example, a printing company can offer to print letterhead or envelopes for an organization. A baker can offer food for luncheons or fundraisers. Donation of time doesn’t necessarily have to mean manning the phones. •  Schools are often understaffed and can use the help of parents and other community members. Volunteering beyond the typical call of duty can help school programs flourish. Volunteering time as a coach or as a librarian can ensure children have the resources and programs for a well-rounded education. •  Consider spending time with the elderly at a nearby assistedliving facility or as part of a home-visitor program. Individuals who don’t have family nearby may appreciate a visit from someone, even if it’s just to sit and chat. This is something the entire family can do, even children. •  Something as simple as carpooling or offering to shop for busy people is another form of volunteer work that doesn’t require being part of a particular organization. Why not babysit for a person who has to catch up on some holiday shopping? There are plenty of ways to contribute without writing a check. The holiday season is the perfect time of year to think in a giving way.

Christmas shopping. Some love it and some hate it. Regardless, it’s expected that crowds will be part of the equation at some point during the holiday season. Avoiding the biggest crowds is often the goal of many holiday shoppers. Today most shoppers are looking to save time, money or both. They often wonder what are the best times to shop to realize the best deals and avoid the crowds. While Black Friday may offer low-low prices, crowds are definitely in abundance, with

thousands of people anxious to score savings. However, if smaller crowds are desired, many retailers offer similar prices to Black Friday the week after Thanksgiving. Shoppers who want to avoid crowds as a main priority will want to shop weekday mornings. If it is possible to take off a day in December to set aside for shopping, one should consider it. Just avoid the hours of 11 to 2. People who are at work may spend their lunch hours catching up on shopping. While weekday shopping may not offer the sales

that take place on the weekends, the stores will certainly be less crowded. Shoppers who know they will be giving gifts after the Christmas holiday, be it to distant relatives or faraway friends, can take advantage of shopping after Dec. 25. This can be a great opportunity to save a lot of money on purchases, as many items are deeply discounted after Christmas. Keep in mind, though, that crowds still may be large because of people making returns or cashing in on gift cards.

Make this Black Friday a safe one There are some people who get the ultimate rush by waking up early and waiting in line for some amazing deals at the stores. Although Black Friday is one of the hotly anticipated events for shoppers to score momentous deals, it has also proven a recipe for disaster. Stampeding masses of eager shoppers have been all too common on Black Friday through the years. Coupled with anticipation of impending sales and the sheer volume of shoppers waiting outside of stores, mob mentality often prevails. It’s survival of the fittest as some shoppers push, shove and run inside of doors to nab the must-have products on sale. In 2008, a sales clerk was trampled to death by a crowd of 2,000 people who knocked the man to the ground at a Wal-Mart store in Valley Stream, N.Y. Later the same day, two people were shot dead at a Toys ‘R’ Us store in Southern California after an argument. Many store employees have tales of picking up trampled people who have been run over at various retailers on Black Friday. Although “Black Friday” refers to a store’s profit margin and their ability to be “in the black” when tallying end-of-year sales, the moniker does seem to have an ominous feel to it. “Black Friday” seems to conjure up images of something bad happening. When unruly mobs race into stores, something bad just may happen. Last year, Dr. David Michaels, the Assistant Secretary for the Occupational Safety and Health Ad-

ministration, was quoted as saying, “Crowd-related injuries during special retail sales and promotional events have increased during recent years. Many of these incidents can be prevented by adopting a crowd management plan.” Just what is a crowdmanagement plan? OSHA has developed a guide for retailers to help avoid accidents and mayhem. The National Retail Federation also issued guidelines for similar promotional events that draw crowds. Contingency plans for larger-thanexpected crowds should be put into place, as should thorough communication plans. Some stores have implemented their own policies, including requiring wrist bands to control the number of people in the store at any given time. Other stores have formed lines in separate areas to avoid crowds at the front of the store. Individuals shopping can also do their part. While Black Friday shopping has become a tradition for many, oftentimes better deals can be had at different points in the holiday season. Some argue that shopping on Thanksgiving Day yields better sales and that those doorbusters are only ways to draw you into the store for other products that don’t have the same wow factor. Keep in mind that many online retailers also offer Black Friday sales that are comparable and you don’t have to wait outside in the cold to get them. Should you still go to a favorite brick-and-mortar store in the wee hours of the morning, experts urge putting personal safety above saving money.
