Every restaurant has a story. The characters who shape the plot with their tastes in food and their notions of service, their audience who enjoy the story by coming to it again and again, and by bringing and telling their friends, the ambience that sets the tone, and finally, the dining_ the beginning, middle and the end of the story with all its delightful variations.
The Horton’s have written a good one. Working together at The American Bistro in Mamaroneck, Robert created a menu that pleased, a truly American menu that respected its antecedents, and Denise learned how to create and maintain a dining environment that complemented the cuisine. They married in 1990 (that’s another story) and opened AN AMERICAN BISTRO on April Fool’s Day 1992, with an economical renovation of a diner on Marbledale Road in Tuckahoe. The new Bistro had it just right and welcomed the old clientele with the first rate cuisine and dining experience they remembered.
