Italian restaurant Chatterbox Pleasantville (75 Cooley St; 914.495.3900; linktr.ee/chatterboxpleasantville) opened where Mediterraneo was, serving selections such as shrimp scampi, baked chicken cutlet with escarole and beans, wild-caught tuna, lamb chops oreganata, bone-in veal marsala, plus pizzas and pastas.
