Bring Cash, Tums and an Empty Stomach to La Manda’s

Lamandas_white_clams_2Celebrating its 50th year, La Manda’s is a mecca for Italian food that will make you happy–chicken scarparo, the La Manda mixed salad, scungilli salad with lemon & oil, spaghetti or linguini with white clam sauce–the list goes on and it is all superior.

Bring your spouse, your date, your kids, your friends–this is a comfortable, homey, local White Plains joint. The portions are gigantic and so are the pieces of garlic in just about every dish you order (you’ll be enjoying your meal for two days unless you take proper precautions).

Zagat’s provides the following comments:

This “crowded local favorite” in White Plains “may be one of the best dives ever” given its “no-frills” “Arthur Avenue”–style Italian “home cooking” (“chicken scarpariello”, “pork chops with vinegar peppers”, “thin-crust pizza”, etc.) that’s “to die for”; yes, the “run-down” decor’s way “out-of-date”, but “loyal patrons” don’t notice because there’s a good reason it’s “been around forever”; P.S. “bring cash.”
