Kraft’s style is a result of the creative efforts of Khalil Wahab, owner of this compact restaurant for the past seven years. The elegant Mr. Wahab is also the devoted host, treating patrons as though they were guests in his own home.

At kraft Bistro, owner Khalil Wahab said he used to have prix-fixe lunches for $12 and dinners for $30, but he discovered that people preferred the many little plates already on the menu. Try a quesadilla or a veggie roll ($10-$12), or an appetizer special such as fried calamari or a kabob, followed by a house-made dessert ($10-$12) such as wild berry napoleon, Afghan rice pudding or celtic bread pudding. The background screenings of film classics, such as "Gone with the Wind" or "Casablanca," are always free and so is the flattering light from the 100 twinkling candles.

Lucky Bronxville.
It's a pity that little dining spots like Kraft aren't cloned all over the country.

KRAFT BISTRO has lots of panache — sparkling chandeliers hanging from rustic beams, paper place mats replaced with every course, citrus slices in the water carafes, even a miniature winterscape decorating the dividers between the bar and dining areas.

Kraft’s long bar is a popular stop for commuters, but the cozy dining areas, which seat about four dozen, can fill up quickly. The menu is intended to appeal to all appetites. Create a light repast of appetizers or small plates. Entrees or large plates can be added for conventional three-course meals. Little, however, about Kraft is conventional.

This charming, candlelit retreat is just steps from the Bronxville train station, a perfect spot for those commuting from the City to meet up with their Westchester peeps. Though small, its intimate atmosphere invites quiet conversation, and a wide variety of stellar martinis are sure to impress any boozecentric exec.

 

“If you have never experienced Afghan cuisine, may i strongly suggest that you include some of these
specialties in your dining experience at Kraft bistro, where Wahab provides an eclectic and exciting menu
for all of his guests.”
