Let's go for an indulgent Brunch as a non Valentine's Day celebration!

Let's head to Moderne Barn in Armonk for an indulgent brunch on this Valentine's Day weekend... We'll meet at 12:30 and be seated at 1pm 

Moderne Barn, with its traditional American roots, global influences and touch of comfort, offers unique menu options created by Chef Ethan Kostbar .
Kostbar’s appreciation of food began as a young boy (he grew up in Israel and traveled extensively throughout the Middle East and Europe during his childhood) and is apparent in the dishes he creates. His menu also showcases his creative journey as a chef, with a strong background in Mediterranean cuisine and a love of global flavors. As often as possible, Chef Ethan sources local ingredients, including meat and fish; fresh, local produce is a must! 

Moderne Barn menus offer casual, yet sophisticated dishes and Chef Ethan’s recipes are a taste for all palates. Fueled with an appreciation for hand-picked ingredients and diverse cultures, his philosophy is such: “simple, seasonal food is delicious food.”

Their brunch is a la carte, including traditional breakfast items as well as a wide variety of warm and cold sandwiches, salads, and entrees. 

Here are their "breakfast" type items: 

Apple Pancakes 12 italian meringue, oat walnut crumble, vermont maple syrup  

Stuffed French Toast 13 chocolate hazelnut, caramelized bananas, lemon butter, toasted hazelnuts

 House Made Ricotta Blintzes 11  ginger fig compote 

Mediterranean Omelet 13 * prosciutto di parma, spinach, baby artichokes, fresh mozzarella, potato hash 

Heart-y Healthy Egg White Omelet 14 * spinach, feta cheese, turkey bacon 

Cape Cod Cakes 15 poached eggs, crawfish remoulade, local mixed greens 

Biscuits & “Ribs” 15 lamb ragu, buttermilk biscuits, spinach, poached eggs, béarnaise sauce 

The Westchester 13 breakfast sausage, house-cured bacon, scrambled eggs, seven grain toast, tomatoes 

Hungover Piggie 14 * sausage stuffed pork loin wrapped in bacon, bell peppers, onion, provolone polenta, sunnyside eggs up 

Vegetarian Frittata 11* yukon gold potatoes, mushrooms medley, broccoli rabe, tarragon goat cheese, local mixed greens 

House Made Granola 11 greek yogurt, fresh fruit, honey 

Here's a few comments from prior diners, "Late Sunday brunch reservation on a cold, raw day. We were welcomed warmly and seated promptly. The brunch menu had lots to try, nice for those of us who really hate the French Toast/Waffle mushy sweet stuff. Our party of 4 ranged in age from 65 to 13.

A few specialty cocktails and starters, I loved the house made gravlax on thinly sliced beets, a new to me combination that I plan on exploring further! our main dishes were a little bit of everything, including "Hungover Piggie": sausage stuffed pork loin wrapped in bacon, bell peppers, onion, provolone polenta, sunnyside eggs. This was very good! My daughter had the Cape Cod cakes, they must have been great because she would not share a bite. the 13-year old went for a burger and fries. He was very happy."

Another writes, "The food is very good, the restaurant is beautiful, and the service is excellent. The noise level on the first floor is very high if you want to have a conversation, so do ask to be seated in the quietest area of the restaurant."

One more wrote, " Brunch was perfect! From the Sauvignon Blanc to the Peach Bellini to the complimentary warm cornbread....we shared the Fried "French Onion" Dumplings served on top of gruyere cheese fondue - this is where I can use the word "AMAZEBALLS" with legitimacy... 
My friend had the Vegetable Panini (grilled eggplant, mushrooms, roasted peppers, fresh mozzarella, and pesto on homemade focaccia).  I had a Mediterranean Omelet (prosciutto, spinach, artichoke, mozzarella, and potato hash). Even the toast was delicious.  We couldn't pass on dessert and I am so glad we didn't: Warm Salted Caramel & Peanut Brittle Sundae and Warm Cinammon Sugared Apple Fritters.  On this rainy Sunday, I couldn't be happier. It met my expectations and I can't wait to come back for dinner one night soon.

I have made a reservation for SIX on Sunday Feb 16th -- starting at 12;30 - we will be seated at 1pm. 

See you there!

    Update on reservations -- we will stay at 16 people for this event.. as if we go higher, we must go to a price fixe menu, which limits our choices. SO>>> if you find that you will not be able to attend, PLEASE CHANGE YOUR RSVP SO THOSE ON THE WAITLIST CAN JOIN US. In light of the popularity of this event, we will go there again in March for HV Restaurant Week - for their Price Fixe Lunch...

      I can pick you up at the White Plains train station. If you take the 11:56am train from Mt Vernon West you should arrive in White Plains at 12:14pm. It should not take more than 15 minutes to get to Armonk.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
