Magno’s Grill in New Rochelle


Westchester County Mom loves nothing more than to show support for our local brands and businesses. I can’t begin to tell you what an honor it was to have a meal at Magno’s Grill and meet the family who keeps this business running strong. Their unique collaboration of delicious Argentinian and Italian food, staff that move as one family unit, and a cozy yet sheik atmosphere, truly brings something different to the table.

Meet the man behind the magic! Chef Angel Magno.

When Angel first arrived in the US, he set out to achieve the “American dream.” He was always drawn to the restaurant industry and felt like it would be the perfect environment to showcase his creative mind.

Angel received his first big break when he became the Executive Chef at Tango Grill. This was just the beginning of the road leading to success. His unique dishes and combination of exotic flavors helped to open up many doors within the industry. Chef Angel quickly gained notoriety in each establishment that he worked at from that point on. However, working for other people wasn’t allowing him to perform at the level that he knew he was capable of.

Motivated by his passion for food and desire to provide top-notch hospitality, he took a leap of faith and opened his own restaurant. With the help of his daughter Jaqueline, who recently graduated with her master’s degree in Industrial-Organizational Psychology, Mango’s Grill has flourished. Angel creates amazing food, and Jackie ensures that every patron has an experience that will guarantee a return visit.

The menu has a well-balanced mix of classic Argentinian and Italian food. There is a little something for everyone. I personally love seafood, and I was impressed with the variety of options. Ultimately, I decided on the fried calamari and crab cake appetizer, followed by lobster ravioli as my entrée. My guest started with the empanadas and had the churrasco for dinner. Everything tasted authentic and so full of flavor. The fact that chef Angel crafts each dish with pure passion is evident in each bite.

Their tomahawk steak has been the talk of the town, and I hear it is a meat lover’s dream. It can feed two people and is currently priced at $99.95.

It was beautiful to see the team moving in unison. The waitstaff was not waiting for a hostess to seat patrons walking in. They rushed over to the door with smiles to welcome each guest. Management was visible at all times, out interacting with the staff and customers. At one point, the bartender came from behind the bar to clear empty plates from our table. There was no division between roles and responsibilities, as far as I could see. What was clear was the fact that these co-workers had become friends that turned into family.

As if the hospitality and delicious food are not enough, the drink menu alone had me planning a return trip. Magno’s has the best passion fruit margarita that I have had all year, hands down (and I have had quite a few)! They offer specialty drinks like a seasonal pumpkin spice martini. I love that you can even learn how to make their drinks.

Every “Tipsy Tuesday,” they share a featured beverage and list the ingredients, as the super talented bartender Eric Erazo walks you through each step on Instagram’s IGTV.

You should know by now that I love to support people who are passionate about caring for others. It came as no surprise to me that Magno’s grill has partnered with Hope Community Services to provide local families within New Rochelle with deep-fried turkeys and canned goods. They are even offering patrons who donated either a turkey or canned goods a complimentary dessert.  

If you haven’t been to Magno’s Grill yet, I would strongly suggest making your way in. You will not be disappointed! Tell them Westchester County Mom sent you! You can thank us later!
