Culinary visionaries Vincent Corso, Michelle Bernal and Angelo Difeo continue their ascent in the world of restaurants as this week Westchester Burger Company officially opened a location in West Nyack, Rockland, marking its fourth location overall and its first outside of namesake Westchester County, NY.

That’s not bad progress for a company that just got its start in 2010. The Westchester Burger Company opened in White Plains that  year and one year later expanded to a second location in Rye Brook and six months after that a third in Mount Kisco. Now a  year or so later number four.

It’s all part of a plan, said Corso, to turn the Westchester Burger Company concept into a regional or even national chain. “We see this as the next Cheesecake Factory, as far as being a popular quality restaurant chain,” said Corso, a co-owner of the company.

So what has allowed this restaurant to defy the odds presented by a slow economy and become an old-fashioned American success story? Corso said the key is the customer-first attitude of staff and management. “It comes down to customer service. Catering to customers is first and foremost,” Corso said, noting, “It’s family-oriented.”

Okay, great food and presentation doesn’t hurt either. The ribs, burgers, salad, pastas, seafood are all accurately advertised as ”quality dining at a reasonable price.”

Angelo Difeo oversees the kitchen operations of the restaurant, while Bernal is the expert “mixologist” who manages the bars. There’s plenty of room for mixing, the bar runs 20 chairs deep.

Some of the entrees have impressive presentations, such as the burgers, which as you’d expect by the name of the Company, have a special focus here. You can see the menu for yourself at  http://www.westchesterburger.com/tag/menu/, but for a sense of what’s offered, take these four examples:

1) The Tex-Mex Burger features an 8 oz. patty with guacamole, salsa, pickled onion quesco fresco and tortillas crunchified on a brioche bun.

2) The Firehouse Burger features a 10 oz. patty with chili, cheddar cheese and crispy onion rings on a brioche bun, served with sesame soy, photo5wasabi mashed potato.

3) The Pretzel Burger features a 8 oz. patty with mild cheddar, maple bacon and fried egg on a pretzel bun.

4) The Original WBC features a 10 oz. patty with smoked mozzarella, beefsteak tomato, pickles, frisee and WBC sauce brioche.

Corso said he loved the location in West Nyack, which sits just across the Palisades Mall all on Route 303. When asked, he confirmed he’s aware that a prior restaurant, Fiesta Sunrise, had a moment of infamy at the same location. That restaurant’s owner “Vic” made the mistake of inviting Gordon Ramsey to his kitchen and the celebrity chef found the place a total wreck and proceeded to make Vic look dumber than Jim Carrey in “Dumb and Dumber.”

Corso said his crew has totally rebuilt and rearranged the restaurant since those days and he welcomes all of Rockland County and neighboring Bergen to stop and experience it for themselves. Gordon Ramsey will not be needed.

First, call your cardiologist. Then, step up to the plate at BGR The Burger Joint, Elevation Burger and Westchester Burger Company to gobble down these monster burgers. We dare you.

The 9 Pounder at BGR The Burger Joint
Made notorious on the Travel Channel, the Food Network, and in an official, IFOC (International Federation of Competitive Eating) eating contest, this burger, including bun and condiments, weighs 15.4 pounds. The burger includes a nine-pound patty, two complete heads of lettuce, eight tomatoes, three red onions, and four whole pickles. It arrives with a bottle of Maalox, and, if one person can eat it in one sitting in under two hours, it’s free of charge. (Requires 24 hours’ notice.)
20 S Moger Ave, Mount Kisco (914) 864-2151; Cross County Shopping Center, 2060 Mall Walk, Yonkers (914) 375-2131; bgrtheburgerjoint.com

The 10-Patty Vertigo Burger at Elevation Burger
Perfect for those burger lovers who like a bit of a wager, the Vertigo can hold from three to 10 patties. A word of warning: You might need jaw surgery to attempt a bite of the 10-patty Vertigo.
176 S Ridge St, Rye Brook (914) 305-6700; Westchester’s Ridge Hill 228 Market St, Yonkers (914) 358-9400; elevationburger.com

The Entourage at Westchester Burger Company
It’s almost more Internet phenomenon than food. Westchester Burger Company’s Entourage comprises two whole grilled-cheese sandwiches, each made with butter-soaked Texas toast. Between them rests a 10-ounce beef patty. Look for the Entourage in the hands of your mugging Facebook friends today.

Westchester Burger Company 

When you want something different than the average Margarita, go for this inventive cocktail, a chilled blend of fruity goodness served in an oversized stem glass. Made with SKYY Infusions Moscato Grape vodka, MIDORI melon liqueur, lychee juice, ripened kiwi, and pineapple juice and garnished with fresh kiwi, it’s a nice way to travel to the islands…at least in your mind.

Cool down: $8; 106 Westchester Ave, White Plains (914) 358-9398; 275 S Ridge St, Rye Brook (914) 305-6095; 353 N Bedford Rd, Mount Kisco (914) 218-3200; westchesterburger.com
