It’s a sparkly cool Friday. The sun is bright, the sky is azure, and the orange, red and yellow leaves are dancing. The colors, and coolness, are inspiring. So, this week, I’m thinking about cozy brunches, and my coconut pancakes! Actually, my friends, I have a confession: I was going… Read More →
Brunch is one of those meals that inspire many of us to wax nostalgic. In fact, it’s one of those meals that even those who didn’t necessarily “shine” in the kitchen, could prepare well. This was definitely the case in my family. Though my mother was a fabulous cook, my… Read More →
The WBC spent most of July laying on the floor right in front of the air conditioner. When we dared to venture into the heat, we made it to two places: Abis in Thornwood and Café Mozart in Mamaroneck. Remember to check us out at westchesterbreakfastclub.com! Abis July 7: We’ve… Read More →
April showers bring brunch. At least that’s the saying that the WBC lives by. Our April was an international one, with dining experiences of France (courtesy of Patisserie Salzburg and La Renaissance Patisserie Francaise, both in Scarsdale) and of Spain (via Sala-on-Hudson in Croton). How did our Westchester European morning… Read More →
The WBC bookended March with two contrasting breakfast experiences with one thing in common: restaurants with similar names. Well, maybe not that similar, but they sound alike to this writer. We started off the month with a Mexican morning meal at Vega in Hartsdale and ended the month on Easter with a traditional… Read More →
Inspiration comes from so many different sources and, as I’ve mentioned before, is sometimes right in front of us! I’ve been on a taco theme, so tortillas are on my mind. I know what you may be thinking: the wrap thing is so 2010 (or older!) but, my friends, I… Read More →
If you’ve stopped by the old Scarsdale Pizza & Brew, you’ll notice a few changes. The first thing that’ll stand out is the new name—Racanelli’s New York Italian. Stepping inside, you’ll notice quick an industrial, Brooklyn-chic makeover. When the menu gets placed in front of you, you may also be… Read More →
Hi all, and happy holidays! Hope you all had some good times, good rest and good eats. And thank you – after my cry for help post, I got some helpful comments, tweets and Facebook messages. All of your input led to a very merry Christmas brunch indeed. I truly… Read More →
That movie “Four Christmases”? Totally about me. All right, well perhaps Reese Witherspoon isn’t exactly my doppelganger, but for my husband and I navigating our two sets of divorced parents has often reflected the comic fodder of the Christmas themed rom-com. While our parents’ relationships range from civil to besties… Read More →
Hi—Katherine Curry again. I have to confess that I came to The Cupcake Kitchen, a charming little breakfast and lunch spot, to eat neither lunch nor cupcakes. I came because the owner, Jennifer O’Connell, serves Jane’s Ice Cream, made in the Hudson Valley. Here’s the sweet-looking exterior.
On Easter Sunday, I went to brunch at the Hudson House. The problem at the Hudson House has always been a great one to have: do you get the amazing eggs Benedict or stray and try something else? Now the problem is even worse. The “something else” includes such tempting… Read More →
I met 9 other women for brunch for a baby shower at Half Moon in Dobbs Ferry on Sunday. The setting was fabulous — watching the ice float down the Hudson River is really something — and I really enjoyed the food, too. I mean, you can’t go wrong with… Read More →

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… Read More →
