Boogie Down Bites: Archie's Tap & Table

Posted: Updated:
CITY ISLAND -

A gastro pub in the Bronx is serving up some farm to table dishes.

Archie's Tap & Table located on City Island Avenue in City Island has been open  since 2015.

Alex Pertsovsky, the owner of Archie's, says he wanted to open a restaurant that featured local ingredients from the Bronx.

"I kind of always wanted something where people would come, have a great meal in a relaxed environment, have some nice wine, local beers, and really get that farm to table kind of experience," he says.

Family and food are two reoccurring themes within Persovsky's gastro pub.

The space where the restaurant sits once occupied a bakery owned by his sister, and the name Archie itself comes from his father Archie, who was a New York City cab driver who helped put his son through culinary school.

There is also a touch of yellow colored booths inside of the restaurant-- a tribute to his father, Persovsky says.

"To kind of remind me that he put a sacrifice into work as a taxi cab driver, to help me become who I am today," he says.
