Where to Brunch Right Now: Home/Made

Fiddlehead Toast with Homemade Ricotta

Fiddlehead Toast with Homemade Ricotta

My favorite summer brunch destination? Home/Made,  the Red Hook restaurant with welcoming vibes, a quaint garden, and plenty of comfort food. The ladies behind the restaurant, Monica Byrne and Leisah Swenson create a warm atmosphere that make you feel like you’re dining in your home kitchen (but with much better food).

For those of you who believe “eggs are eggs” and they cannot be elevated beyond that, try the eggs at Home/Made. I don’t know what their secret is, but the wild mushroom and fontina scramble takes the usual skillet to plate scrambled eggs to the next level. It’s served with buttery, garlicky Potatoes Provencal and a thick slice of grilled walnut bread. I. Can’t. Get. Enough. Most recently, Home/Made exceeded my expectations when I tasted their special– Fiddlehead Toast with Homemade Ricotta. The combination of creamy ricotta and earthy fiddleheads on the crisp toast was perfect.

Make sure to sit in the backyard, a charming spot with a sprouting herb garden, with a grapefruit mimosa, enjoying the last few weeks of summer sunshine.
