WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Fresh lobster, oysters and champagne greeted guests at Tuesday's grand opening of KEE Oyster House.

White Plains Mayor Tom Roach and George Oros, chief of staff to Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, welcomed the new restaurant at 126 E. Post Road during a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

"I want to thank you for your significant investment,'' Roach said. "The food is fantastic."

Three Westchester natives with a love of food, family, and friends opened the eatery on Feb 29. KEE represents the owners' first names -- Kenan "Kenny" Neziraj from Yonkers, Elvi Hoxhaj from Pleasantville and Ekrem "Eddie" Xhemaijli from New Rochelle.

"I appreciate everyone's support,'' Hoxhaj said.

The idea was born with a desire to bring New York's oyster history back to life with a thematic focus on the Prohibition era.

The trio has worked in New York City restaurants almost their entire lives; each comes from hard-working immigrant families who came to the U.S. to live the American dream.

Diners will find an extensive raw bar where a shucker is stationed all day, along with fresh seafood brought in daily from New York City's fish market.

Desserts are house-made and cocktails such as the Uptown Manhattan, Ultimate Fresh Cosmo, Gold Rush, Pomegranate Martini and Espumante Mojito are inventive.
