A restaurant in Mount Kisco has unveiled a new soup in honor of Gov.-elect Andrew Cuomo, who lives in New Castle (but has a Mount Kisco mailing address). Via Vanti! is now serving “Lago di Cuomo” soup. It is a “puree of warming winter greens served with a crostini topped with goat
cheese, chopped tomato and fresh basil,” the restaurant Founder Jimmy John said in a news release. The soup is vegan and non-dairy, and a gluten-free crostini is available upon request.
The soup, while named for Cuomo, is also inspired by the Lago di Como resort destination in northern Italy, according to the restaurant. Customers will get a free taste of the “inaugural soup” during January. Lago di Cuomo will be one of Via Vanti!’s seasonal soups, and $1 from every purchase of it will be donated to the Food Bank of Westchester.
The 2-year-old restaurant is located in the historic Mount Kisco Train Station at 2 Kirby Plaza.
