Yorktown's Spark Valley Steakhouse Celebrates Grand Opening

Editor's Note: This story has been updated to include the restaurant's location.

YORKTOWN, N.Y. – The owners and staff of Spark Valley Steakhouse welcomed town and state officials May 30 to celebrate the grand opening of Yorktown’s newest restaurant.

The steakhouse is located at 3360 Crompond Road (Route 202), opposite the Staples Plaza Shopping Center.

State Sen. Terrence Murphy and Assemblyman Kevin Byrne presented the owners with proclamations and each said a few words to commemorate the addition of a small business to the area.

“We thank you so much for taking the opportunity and the risk of opening up this great steakhouse in Yorktown,” Murphy said.

Klevis Tana, who co-owns the restaurant with brother-in-law, Elvis Cutra, and father-in-law, Sergio, said that with the exception of the steak, which is shipped from the Midwest, all of the food is locally sourced. The three have owned nine establishments, three of which are currently active.

Spark Valley Steakhouse was created with Yorktown’s history and the food selection in mind. The décor and art were chosen to reflect the area and the restaurant’s name, Tana said.

“Everything springs from the valley,” he said. “The cows, the fruits and the vegetables.”

Tana said both dry and wet-aged steaks are a specialty of the steakhouse, but for those that do not eat meat, they’ve hired a chef specifically to accommodate pasta requests. Additionally, the bar offers a selection of 3,000 wines (2,000 of which are red).

Spark Valley Steakhouse is also home to an art collection, which includes renaissance style pieces such as an original French tapestry and one panel of “The Duke and the Duchess of Urbino,” painted by artist and “The Sopranos star” Federico Castelluccio.

The restaurant’s menu and business hours are available on Facebook and its website, sparkvalleysteakhouse.com.

The Meaning of the Election Results

There are no national implications from last Tuesday’s election results. Yet, there was our very own senator, Chuck Schumer, saying, “This was a profound election result. This was the rejection of Donald Trump personally, and this was the rejection of Donald Trump’s policies. This was a full-fledged and total rejection of Donald Trump.” 

What else is he gonna say? ...

Reflections on Elections Past and Present

As I awaited the returns on election night, I couldn’t help but reflect on my very first electoral experience. It was a cold November night in 1991. Many months before, having been weaned on John F. Kennedy’s call to activism as well as my dad’s living example of community involvement, I answered an ad in the North County News which called on any persons interested in running ...

Get Your Gig On

It’s understandable that when people see empty storefronts, they infer it’s the mark of economic malaise. It is not. What’s not taken into account by jumping to that conclusion is that times change, marketplace dynamics change, shopping habits change.

Consumers are spending money, all right, just in different places and in different ways. A storefront that made sense in past ...

One More Doggone Diet

“I caught the dog looking at himself in the full-length mirror today,” I said to my husband. “I think he’s feeling a little self-conscious about his thighs. And he’s worried about putting on weight over the holidays.”

“The dog is worried?” my husband asked.

“Yes, he's noticed that he’s put on a few pounds since Halloween and he ...

The Importance of Reading to Your Baby

Dear Dr. Linda,

I have a 3-month-old baby and have been reading to her from the day she was born. My husband has dyslexia and I’m concerned that she may have inherited it. Will this prevent it?

Dear Madison,

I wish there was a guarantee that your baby wouldn’t inherit her dad’s “reading gene” but there isn’t. Whether she has a genetic ...
