Plates Restaurant, serving New American cuisine, is located at 121 Myrtle Boulevard, Larchmont, NY 10538 in Westchester County.
From Plates: "Starting in his mother’s kitchen and continuing on to some of the world’s most acclaimed restaurants, Chef Matthew Karp has dedicated most of his life to food. With his nose always in a cookbook and his hands elbow deep in flour, it has always been about “the next meal”. PLATES is the culmination of his training thus far, but only the beginning of what he wants to say.
"He has looped from Scarsdale cooking as a kid, to the China Institute at 14 for Peking Duck lessons, on to internships in Manhattan Restaurants, and refining with a Masters in Culinary Arts from the Cordon Bleu in Paris. He has worked for Star Chefs and learned from Italian grandmothers. He has stretched the mozzarella on the Amalfi Coast and picked the vineyards in France. He is impassioned by the authentic and inspired by the dedicated. Ultimately, he seeks to put good food on a plate, whether simple or elaborate, and loves it when those at the table enjoy.
"He has brought together a talented team of like minded “foodies”, and looks forward to the group effort yielding memorable dining experiences for friends and visitors to PLATES."
About the Plates
"In his culinary travels around the world, Chef Matthew Karp has collected a plate from each restaurant where he trained, worked, or was impressed. In asking for the plate, he told the restaurateur that it would be displayed in his home and someday in his restaurant. The plates, hailing from Lucas Carton in Paris and Boschendahl Vineyard in South Africa, from Bouley in Tribeca and Matteos Pizzeria in Naples, represent an international set of culinary experiences and diverse influences. The plates have made their move to the walls of PLATES and are cataloged in small albums for diners to peruse."
