Looking for a nice place to take my mom for her birthday for Sunday brunch. Any recommendations in Westchester?

  1. The Tulip Tree in the Rye Town Hilton has a very nice buffet. Were you looking for a particular area in Westchester?

      Ruby's Oyster Bar on Purchase Street in Rye has a nice brunch menu. Same for Scarborough Fair in Bronxville (although I confess I have not been there in a while).

      Crowne Plaza in WP has a nice, although not cheap, brunch. Zanaro's on Mamaroneck Ave. does brunch. So does Spiga on Central Ave.

      If you do a search you will see a lot of previous threads on this very topic.

      Has anyone tried Whitby Castle for brunch since it was sold by Restaurant Associates?

        Watercolor Cafe in Larchmont is very cute. They just redid the whole restaurant and it looks great.

          We liked Watercolor for dinner but I have to say I think the brunch prices are out of line with everything at least $15.95 and most higher including the frittatas, french toast and plain old eggs benedict.

            I *think* their brunch is prix fixed. As in you get unlimited coffee or tea, a cocktail, muffins, side of hasbrowns and fruit for the price listed. You may want to double check however. I've always found it to be reasonable.

    2. The Kittle House in Chappaqua puts out a lovely spread for brunch and it is pretty reasonable--the food is fresh and they include local cheeses, etc. We were there last Sunday for a birthday brunch and it was wonderful.

      1. Westchester's bigger than you think... any geographic preferences?

        1. We love Bloom in Hastings for brunch. It's a new organic eatery. The food is fresh and tasty. It's original, but doesn't stray too far from the basics. The chef's wife is a pastry chef- not sure if she actually makes the pastries but dang, the bread basket is unmissable, even when I'm trying to avoid sweets. :)

          decor is lovely too. Could be a nice, quiet choice compared with the big buffet places.

            I second this, it's a wonderful bargain considering the care and attention of the flavors and presentation. The prices are a steal.

          2. Not technically in Westchester, but could be close depending on where you're coming from - the Greenwich Hyatt has a nice brunch. Pricey, though.

            1. Just had brunch at the Deer Park Tavern off route 35 in Katonah. This place has had a somewhat checkered history, and I've never felt a need to recommend it before, but they appear to have changed chefs and we had a GREAT brunch.

              They know how to make a decent Bloody Mary and they have a very wide selection, with a set of "small plates" to tempt those with smaller appetites. Everything we had was well prepared, the bread basket was lovely, and the coffee was pretty good.

              There are some new entries on the menu that we will need to come back and try at dinner some time, including PEI Mussels with hot peppers, sausage and white wine which sounds intruiging.

              Prices are reasonable. We'll do there again. They also seem to have a decent deal on Wednesdays, where the wines are half price.
