After a big splash on the culinary circuit with its opening, The Rare Bit in Dobbs Ferry has recently expanded its menu. Diners can also choose the comfort of local Hudson Valley favorites.
Why the change in course? “We listened to our customers,” said owner Scott Broccoli. “They liked the food that we featured when we first opened, but in addition wanted to see some of their old favorites back on our menu. We now offer some locally loved dishes as well.”
Whether you fancy a beautiful salad (Middle Eastern-flavored fattoush, octopus or smoked beets with arugula), market fish (striped bass or scallops), something heartier like beef Wellington (a special on Wellington Wednesdays) or pork chops made with Jamaican jerk and guava gravy, there’s something for everyone on the expanded menu. No meal would be complete without one of The Bit’s “worth every calorie” desserts (apple almond tart, New York-style pumpkin cheesecake or chocolate brownie cake). To wash it all down, The Bit’s hard seltzers (made with fresh flavors) like the “Dobbs Berry” are a big crowd pleaser.
As its motto says, “A bit of food, a bit of booze, a bit of fun.” The Rare Bit is proof you don’t have to travel the world to have a world-class dining experience.
The Rare Bit, at 23 Cedar St. in Dobbs Ferry, is open for brunch, lunch and dinner. For reservations and more, call 914-693-8000 or visit therarebitdf.com.
