January 1, 2015

I spent the first day of 2015 with my husband sharing a lovely brunch with my daughter and her husband in a quaint restaurant located in the seaside town of Northport, NY.  We arrived hungry and since all of the shops were closed for the holiday we headed straight for a little restaurant on the shady side of the street.  We sat in an elevated booth with tight clay beads acting as a shield from the patrons in the next booth.  A victorian setting featured beautiful little sconces set amidst a muted purple and teal wallpaper which lit the room dimly but comfortably.  A pressed tin ceiling and woodwork gave an old world style to beautifully set tables with crisp, clean white linen.  Some dishes were well done, others not so much but being a food snob I’ll try not to be too judgmental.  The most impressive item on the menu was “pots de creme” served in a glass ashtray with a chocolate cigar and chocolate chip “ashes”.  Happy New Year!
