5 Avocado Toasts Taking Westchester by Storm
When we talk about brunch, we mean business.
Call us “basic,” but we love a great avocado toast as much as the next Millennial.
This trendy brunch item has been popping up on menus across the county, and these five restaurants have perfected their recipes. Whether you’re looking for prosciutto-topped toast in the Rivertowns or a vegetarian version, we’ve accumulated the perfect guide for avocado lovers everywhere.
At Pound Ridge’s The Kitchen Table, you don’t have to be an early riser in order to snag this brunch favorite. The restaurant’s classic iteration, served with crushed red pepper, EVOO, and a squeeze of lemon, is served all day. This guilt-free indulgence is a great start to your morning (or afternoon). There’s also a more breakfast-like version that really brings out the farm-to-table feel, served with an over-easy egg on a bed of microgreens.
If you find your appetite to be more seafaring, there is a smoked-salmon avocado toast at Harper’s in Dobbs Ferry. Think of it as a bagel with lox’s richer, more elegant cousin. Pair your toast with a Mimosa for an Instagrammable brunch that will turn your friends avocado-green with envy.
The upscale wine bar subscribes to the idea that the bread makes the dish. Their whole wheat, sourdough loaf comes from Sullivan Street Bakery in NYC. The thick, dark crust provides a great contrast to the smooth avocado. Boro6 also offers the option to add 24-month Parma prosciutto for a rich, nutty accent. According to owner Paul Molakides, the secret ingredient that brings the flavors together is coconut oil that is between the bread and avocado.
Open for breakfast and lunch, Pop’s Espresso Bar in New Rochelle is small, but packs big flavor. Their avocado toast combines spice from chili powder, nuttiness from pepitas, and a tang from goat cheese to give the toast an earthy, Mediterranean vibe. And with the option to add a poached egg for only $1.50, the decision is easy and well worth it.
At Chappaqua Station, you can have it all. The menu offers options for everyone, and adding smoked salmon and a poached egg is encouraged. Dairy- and gluten-free diners, fear not! Chappaqua station considerately caters to any gluten- or dairy-free request, leaving nobody out of this brunch trend.
