Westchester Sunday Brunch for a Large Group

Looking for a place to have brunch with a large group in Westchester, preferably within 20 minutes of White Plains. Must be either a buffet or price fixe to make things more convenient, but still have good food. The group is a mix of picky eaters and foodies, young and old. How would Kittlehouse or X in Congers (X20 is booked) fit the bill? Or any other places you'd recommend? TIA.

      How are Half Moon's prices--they are not listed on the website?
      I LOVE Restaurant X, and have been there with picky eaters--there are so many different choices, that there are enought for the picky eaters (and more than enough for the foodies)...also, champagne is unlimited. The drive is a little more than 20 minutes from White Plains though.

          Harvest and Half Moon are same management-- but Harvest is much pricier. Half Moon has a special phone # for groups right on the website, or you could order off the regular menu. (very reasonable).

            What's very reasonable? Strange that they don't have prices on their website, wonder why--that's a turn off for many people?

            1. re: Marge

              No entree over $20. My fave is the Angry Calamari salad, $12.

          How is the cart service/timing, etc at X, as opposed to a standard buffet?

          1. re: fooodie

            There is one seating at X, which starts at 1 o'clock. Items are served one at a time, for example, after being seated, the bread guy comes around. Then the ceasar salad is served. Then fresh fruit. Then maybe a bagel with smoked salmon. Then some eggs on and so forth for about 20 different items, including all kinds of sea food, pastas, and meat. After all the savory items have been served, platters of assorted desserts, including cakes, puddings, mousses, creme brulee, ice cream, are put on the table family style. As opposed to a standard buffet, everything is not put out/available at once, dishes are offered one at a time....although champagne/mimosas are constantly replenished!

            1. re: Marge

              Now I'm getting the urge for another X-fix! Loved it, timing and all. Been there twice, can't wait to go back!!

              1. re: Marge

                Thanks, X sounds great. Unfortunately they are booked. I'll probably go with Kittlehouse and go to X another time.

        3. Kittle House will totally fit the bill. Their brunch is amazing and they can easily handle a large group.

            How much is their Sunday Brunch per person for 2-4 people (not a group rate obviously)? Peter Kelly's are $38 base, but the Kittle website doesn't say.

            1. re: Ho_Nutha_Levoo

              I believe Kittlehouse was about $34/person. The food was quite good and they have a nice variety of items on the buffet. Definitely have a piece of chocolate croissant if they have it...delicious!

          2. Definietly think Kittle House is a great choice. ALso try Lexington Square Cafe in Mount Kisco
