Ran the 5k in Dobbs Ferry, NY a weekend ago and went to brunch with some friends afterwards at Doubleday’s Restaurant & Bar on Main Street. This is a bar that is frequented and loved by many of the local residents. I was the newcomer that got to experience the magic. My friends love this place and said that the food is as good as any bar food can be. They are correct!
TWO EGGS: Sunny side up with home fries and baconEGGS BENEDICT: two poached eggs with Canadian bacon on a whole wheat English muffin, topped with hollandaise sauce, served with home fries
THE BIG BREAKFAST BURRITO: scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, home fries, cheddar cheese, and pico de gallo stuffed into a flour tortilla and topped with spicy salsa TWO EGGS: scrambled with home fries
Typically, if I look at this meal strictly from the food perspective, then I would say that this felt like something I can make myself, homey that is. But if I look at this as a local place where everyone comes to feel right at home – like what a pub is supposed to be in Ireland, then this is the place because the restaurant filled up so quickly after they opened. People come because this is a place of gathering. It has a meaning that is way beyond food just like people you meet along the way in life. Acquaintances can become meaningful friends in some ways, at some point in time, if you let them. Mimosas to new friends and old!
