Chef Anthony Goncalves never went to cooking school. He never started as a dishwasher or cooked under an award-winning chef. He never ran a large-scale operation. And yet, he is the chef and co-owner behind the 210-seat, 27,000 square-foot restaurant, 42 at the Ritz-Carlton Westchester, which sits atop the tallest building between Boston and New York with postcard worthy views of the Manhattan skyline and Hudson River Valley. How did Goncalves achieve such success in an industry so ridden with competition and closures? Equal parts talent, passion, charisma and, of course, a faithful Westchester investor.

Smart American restaurant buyers, however, seek out and list Ribera wines.
