French Neighborhood Cooking Redefined at Pelham’s Bistro Rollin By Chef Eric Mauro
When The New York Times recently noted the hot restaurants of 2014, the clearest trend was informal French restaurants run by talented chefs who were anything but French, culinary pros determined to take classic techniques and dishes and infuse them with new life.
That’s a good way to define Pelham’s Bistro Rollin, which has been in the forefront of this trend for five years. It’s where Brazilian-born Chef Eric Mauro rethinks the French favorites and adds his own distinctive touches to some bistro standards.
“My idea is that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel,” says Chef Mauro. “I want to innovate but I also want to keep it simple and classical as well.”
For Chef Mauro, that means always having a letter perfect version of roast chicken, a hanger steak with hand-cut French Fries, as well as a hearty winter cassoulet. But Chef Mauro’s recent innovations show a marked tendency towards lighter tastes, like his new Monster Green Salad, with six or seven different green vegetables and lime vinaigrette. It’s part of his new Vegan Menu offerings that include a vegetable tagine and fresh pear poached in orange juice and Grand Marnier. He can also create gluten free versions of most offerings on the menu and does so upon request.
Chef Mauro has been in the kitchen of Bistro Rollin since the beginning and at the helm for nearly a year. A graduate of Universidade Anhembi Morumbi culinary school in Sao Paulo, the Brazilian equivalent of the CIA, Chef Mauro spent a year doing a stage at Restaurante Martín Berasategui, the famed three Michelin star restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain. The 27 year old chef brings youthful exuberance to his starring role in Bistro Rollin’s kitchen, and notes that “passion is important, and so is innovation.”
Chef Mauro’s offers Asian, Spanish and Brazilian accents in his cooking, so edamame might be prepared with a soy beurre blanc while passion fruit mousse can appear on some plates. His pan roasted skate may be classic “but people love the way I prepare it, with celery root puree and caper berries.”

Always a winner! This is my favorite restaurant. In the years that it has been open, I have never had anything but excellent food, service and a warm and friendly atmosphere. Just the best.

Every course was just perfect. Could not have asked for better food service and ambiance. Highly recommend.

The food and service were very good here. Highlights- the halibut cerviche and the fall apple crumble. The hand cut fires are perhaps the best homemade fries I’ve had in ages. The restaurant week menu had a lot of great options, and is offered even on Saturday night. I’d definitely return. This place is a gem in lower Westchester.

I found Bistro Rollin on the Westchester Restaurant Week list. It looked interesting so we tried it. It was good from the strt. One of the signature drinks had a whiskey I had never heard of. The waiter brought the bottle and after a taste give me a generous pour. The owner came over to introduce himself, tell us about his background and how he got into the restaurant business. The root soup and pumpkin cheesecake were particularly good. A fine, quiet evening.

Italian Wine Tasting Dinner – Really enjoyed the wine tasting dinner. 5 courses and five wines. Wines were very good for the price and all 5 courses were delicious. Suggested changing restaurant name to Trattoria Rollin for the night.

Excellent and Reliable- After coming here for dinner with some frequency, I set up a mini family reunion (about 12 people, most from out of town) for brunch on a Sunday. Everyone was appreciative and satisfied. Excellent selection, service and ambiance. Two other points I would like to make generally are that (1) Bistro Rollin has a very reasonably priced wine list, and (2) the owners are almost always at the restaurant, friendly and helpful.

Always wonderful- We have enjoyed Bistro Rollin for dinner since it opened, and go for every special occasion. Now, we’ve also had a brunch, and it was absolutely perfect. Go there!

Great Lunch – So terrific to have civilized – and delicious lunch – for such a reasonable price! The Bistro Rollin salads were excellent, and then, of course there’s the tuna burger…and the burger burger. All delicious and the restaurant is lovely.

Scope of Menu – I have been to the Bistro twice and would happily return, but I would like to see additinal selections on the menu…additional chicken and fish dishes.

Great place for fine dining. I picked this restaurant last minute based by the reviews. I use to live in the area, and had a friend in out of town here from Italy. What a terrific choice of restaurants! The staff was welcoming and attentive. Both dinners were well prepared and very tasty. I’m really picky about food (dad taught at the CIA – Culinary Institute and was a french chef). So believe me – you deserve to treat yourself to this lovely restaurant. The only down side was that since it is such a popular place it was a little noisy. Believe me I can put up with a little noise for great food! Go and enjoy!

Beautiful Evening! From the celebratory Champagne to the dessert, everything was excellent on this night. Steven, our waiter, was very attentive and helpful. I don’t remember the names of the other waitstaff, but they were all very good. The salmon rillettes, local farm tomato and burrata salad, salade verte monstre, the skate, the striped bass, and desserts were all fresh, delicate, and delicious. We and our friends had a lovely evening.

Went to this delightful restaurant after seeing a walk in the woods with Kathy. This restaurant was quiet at 10:10 at night but we were greeted with a big smile and very friendly waiter. Our drink order was taken immediately and the menu and specials were described in full. Had the escargot for starters. It was delicious and had a great mixture in the sauce of garlic parsley and butter. Dinners were a Caprese macaroni which was very tasty and the Roasted chicken with Broccoli puree which was good and a blueberry chutney. I could of done without that. It made it too sweet. Server Mark was friendly and exceptionally good. Would surely go back.
