Recently, you may recall me talking about a delicious brunch I had with friends at Ovelia. I loved everything about it, especially the beautifully colored beat omelet, pictured here. But...over the past week, I found out that plans for brunch will change. Not to worry though because the changes are improvements, as Ovelia will be overhauling the brunch menu (as well as their other menus) to include organic and dairy products from local NY farms.
I'm excited about this new development and think that the quality of their offering will only improve.
Another great happening is that Chef, Pete is being featured in an upcoming celebrity chef cookbook, which includes Martha Stewart and other notable icons. His gracious contribution is his recipe for Ovelia's corn flapjacks - ricotta, walnuts, polenta...oh my!
Hope I've whet your appetite to explore this local gem. Now go...get your eat on.
