7 Steps to a Hastings-on-Hudson Food Binge

You might need to be rolled home by the end of this, but boy will it be worth it.

1. Fuel Up With Cold Brew and a Croissant

Get a caffeine jolt right out of the gate at Antoinette’s Patisserie. The family-run coffee shop (and spot for a flaky almond croissant) serves Hastings-based GiacoBean coffees, including smooth-yet-potent Sharkbite cold brew — also available to take home in growlers.

2. Go for the Double Dip

Among the hummus bowls, shawarma, and salads, you’ll also find shakshouka on the menu at Taiim Falafel Shack. Swipe a warm pita through the spiced tomato sauce and poached eggs’ runny yolks and wonder why you’ve ever eaten eggs any other way.

3. Support the Spritz

Like the rest of the Internet, we love a good spritz. Bread & Brine has five versions, including classic Aperol, a sparkling negroni sbagliato, and a Cava spritz with elderflower and grapefruit. Pair one (or several) with oysters from the raw bar or a crispy fish sandwich with fried lemons.

4. Break for Something Sweet

Choose (or don’t) between a stop at small-batch Penny Lick Ice Cream Co. for a scoop of Ethiopian macchiato or Mounds-esque vegan chocolate-coconut and a visit to gluten- and dairy-free By the Way Bakery, where, if you’re very lucky, the day’s cake-by-the-slice will be the ethereal Coconut Cloud.

5. Take Advantage of Happy Hour

Stop by stylish, European-style wine bar Boro6 for happy hour (Tuesday through Sunday, 3 p.m.–6 p.m.), when a handful of bottles are offered at a discount that will absolve you of any guilt about splurging on a plate of black label prosciutto and a wedge of Jasper Hill Harbison.

6. Seek out an Epic View

Tucked down an alley off Warburton Avenue is the entrance to Divino Cucina Italiana’s new speakeasy. The reward: plenty of pasta and an otherwise-unseen view of the Warburton Avenue Bridge over a tree-covered slope and stream.

7. Go Green

Cap your night with a drink from the absinthe fountain at Saint George, Chris Vergara’s character-filled French bistro. If you’ve got the room, the pâté de campagne, pork rillettes, and duck-bouillon onion soup are all worth an order.
