Let’s do brunch: 7 Westchester spots worth waking up for

News & Media

lohud.com gives the delicious details on 7 Westchester’s restauarsnts brunch worthy, and the Cookery got a ‘hog-wild’ write up.

At the end of a long work week nothing beats brunch.

Which is why, come Sunday (and in some cases, Saturday), we scout out the most epic eggs, the fluffiest pancakes and the strongest (preferably bottomless) mimosas (or Bloody’s).

We asked readers their favorite brunch spots — and got a great response — then broke them down into categories to make your decision easier.

For a ‘Hog-Wild’ prix fixe: The Cookery, Dobbs Ferry

Chef Dave DiBari is known for cooking outside the box, making his brunch an experience that goes beyond your typical eggs and pancakes. For $35, diners get a choice of a starter, main, dessert, and a glass of the week’s special “brunch punch,” a seasonal concoction served from a crystal bowl. That’s in addition to the small bites (think mini cornbread muffins, Cinnabon-style muffins or date scones) offered by servers as they move through the dining room.

The restaurant roasts a whole suckling pig for Saturday and Sunday brunch, then displays it on the bar where slices and crispy pieces of skin are served with dollops of apple mustard. Among the more popular items: a cinnamon sugar doughnut stuffed with smoked pig’s head, hot honey, fresh basil, and barbecued onions. For less adventurous eaters, you’ll also find French toast, fried chicken and a burger. Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Go: 39 Chestnut St., Dobbs Ferry, 914-305-2336.
