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.

An 'Air of Hypocrisy' at Town Hall

February 22, 2018

There is an air of hypocrisy blowing over Yorktown and it is coming from town hall. Over the past couple of weeks, I questioned the “temporary” hiring of the Oxman Law Group as legal counsel to Yorktown in a purported “interim” capacity. I have had comments of support and comments questioning my motivation. Rather than have people guess, I would like to be ...

The DACA Dilemma and the Trick of the Trickle-Down Theory

Here is our very own Sen. Charles Schumer on the Senate floor last week: “President Trump has stood in the way of a bipartisan solution to DACA, a problem he created in the first place, and yet the president is in this dream world. He thinks, ‘Oh, I can blame Democrats for the impasse.’ As I said, only in the 1984 world where up is down and black is white could this be true.

A Gold Medal for Jerry

Time advances at a relentless pace. It seems like life moves as though through a movie projector operating at triple speed. As Virgil commented, “It flies never to be regained.” We desperately try to slow its unyielding march by celebrating milestones: birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, weddings, etc. The hope is that we can somehow slow the process, take a breath and enjoy the ...

I Love 'I Hate Hamlet'

Let’s face it, folks. Not everyone loves Shakespeare. Not even all actors. Andrew Rally is one of them. In fact, where there’s a Will, there’s a way Andrew will find to avoid acting in one of those famously timeless plays. And for good reason. Shakespeare tests, to the fullest, an actor’s mettle, and Andrew is strictly a TV actor.

He has just ended a star turn in the ...

I Am Woman, Hair Me Roar

When you have short hair, it is inevitable that you will spend an inordinate amount of time growing your hair out and then getting fed up and cutting it again. I have been down this hair-brained road several dozen times before, complaining for months until I am convinced my husband is going to cut it all off while I sleep just so he doesn’t have to listen to me whine about it one more ...

Should Valentine's Day Be Celebrated at School?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I’ve been a third-grade teacher for over 20 years and have never allowed my students to celebrate Valentine’s Day in my class. I know my colleagues think I’m mean, but I’m refusing to celebrate it for many reasons.

1) Children hand out cards to each other and there’s always some child left out or who gets very few; 2) Children are always asked ...
