Little Crepe Street
Jan. 20 We know, we know. Oysters for breakfast? For Sylvia and Jeff, the answer was yes. Although they did get some more traditional breakfast-fare to round out their meals. Sylvia was particularly pleased with her lobster, asparagus, and brie fritatta. (Yes, Sylvia really likes asparagus.) The fritatta was quite large with very generous chunks of lobster included–no skimping on the good stuff here (and for $27, you definitely want to get your money’s worth of good stuff). The coffee also earned a thumbs up. Ruby’s serves breakast from Mondays-Saturdays and brunch on Sundays, so stop in any day of the week for a solid morning meal. Being the dessert lovers that we are, after breakfast a walk down the block to Patisserie Salzburg was in order. The bread pudding was enough to whet our appetite for a return visit to give Patisserie Salzburg a try for breakfast.
Jan. 27 First of all, thank you Cedar Street Grill for not putting an “e” at the end of Grill. We appreciate your non-pretentiousness. We also appreciate your food. Starting with the fried pickle chips, we were happy. The thick slices of crunchy pickles are encased in a well-fried batter; the remoulade on the side was flavorful without being too powerful. Your mac and cheese sides could be meals unto themselves. Reid was thoroughly pleased with the fried chicken and waffles, hailing the chicken as moist and flavorful. And bonus points for the maple syrup served with it! Sylvia was over the moon about the grits, which had a wonderful balance of cheesiness (the good kind of cheesiness), sausage, and egg. And again, bonus points for maple syrup! Shelley’s Hungry Man omelette, while large, lacked the fluffiness that she’s come to enjoy in an omelette. But this wasn’t in and of itself a dealbreaker. Coffee refills could be a bit more frequent (we really like our coffee), but overall the meal combined with the cozy (if a bit chilly) ambiance and prompt, friendly service make us fairly certain that Dobbs Ferry has another culinary winner on its hands.
