Brunch at Half Moon


This time of year it’s hard to take advantage of the amazing view out the windows of Half Moon in Dobbs. It just gets dark too darn early! So why not go for brunch? Chef Vincent Barcelona just sent me the menu. It looks delicious.

Half Moon Brunch menu we are serving brunch from 11:30 to 3:00 then going directly into our regular dinner menu at 3:00. We are also offering unlimited champagne, mimosas and soft drinks for one charge of $11.50 per person…on a side note we are working on a nonalcoholic mock-cocktail list to offer as part of the $11.50pp.

The 411 on Half Moon.

  1. As much as I love Half Moon, these prices are similar to the most expensive manhattan restaurant brunch prices.. Equivalent to just the $11.50 beverage surcharge cost, there are some nice brunch options all over NY that include mimosa or a bloody mary.
