Growing up, Wayne Chessler worked at his uncle’s restaurants, and says the business was in his blood. So much so, he opened his own place in Bronxville seven years ago.
Park 143 Bistro & Fish began as a tapas spot and has evolved into a bistro with an emphasis on seafood. There’s shrimp and grits, crispy octopus and a variety of mussels – including ‘drunken’ style. That dish gets its kick from tequila and jalapenos. For Wayne, who is friendly with so many of his customers, every night is like a dinner party.

The executive chef, Jason Holmberg, who worked as a sous chef at Wolfgang Puck in Denver, BLT Steak in Charlotte, N.C., and Picholine in Manhattan, is a fan of abundance, not necessarily in the size of the servings — appetizers can sometimes be on the small side — but in the breadth of the flavors.
We were in the mood for something different — a meal with a lot of flavor and a lot of choices. So my husband and I went to Park 143 Bistro in Bronxville to check out their menu of more than 25 small plates including six savory crepes.
