The revitalization of the old Boyce Thompson Institute can almost be reflective of the nature of the restaurant industry; it maintains its original nature, but is constantly evolving. Westchester is no stranger to this trend and the landscape is changing rapidly. This spring, the Boyce Thompson center welcomes two trendy restaurants that embrace this ideal; Fortina and The Taco Project.

In Yonkers, Simone Development Companies is rebuilding the old, run-down Boyce Thompson Institute as a mixed-use development with about 85,000 square feet of space. About 70 percent of the $35 million Boyce Thompson Center is leased, said Guy Leibler, president of Bronx-based Simone, including deals with two restaurants: Fortina, an Italian restaurant that also has locations in Armonk, Rye Brook and Stamford, Connecticut; and the Taco Project, which is also in Tarrytown. “The key for restaurants is casual but with very good food,” he said. “That’s the real trend that Westchester is following now. But not the same old ones — people are looking for new names with young chefs.”
