Where to Eat Bacon for National Bacon Day in Westchester

Whether you prefer thick-cut, extra crispy, on a sammie, or all alone, today is a good day for bacon in Westchester.

We are going to go out on a limb here and say that every day is not actually bacon day. (Mic drop.) In reality, September 2 is National Bacon Day, but we like to commemorate the luscious strips of meaty, fatty goodness whenever the craving hits (which is on the daily). Even hardcore vegetarians have been known to start salivating with just one whiff, and some bend the rules and sneak a nibble when nobody’s watching (we don’t judge). Lucky for all of us, bacon is no stranger to the menus of Westchester. Here are a few spots that offer homage to the Big B in some pretty unique, mouthwatering ways.

Billy & Pete’s Social

121 Myrtle Blvd, Larchmont; 914.909.5289

We know a thing or two about bacon on pizza (we see you, fellow bacon ranch pizza pros), but this iteration takes the proverbial, pie, if we may. Along with crispy bacon, the ‘Tater Bama is topped with mashed potatoes and zippy pepper jack cheese, then finished off with Alabama white barbecue sauce. Say when.

Jack’s Bar & Restaurant

219 Main St, Eastchester; 914.653.7650

We all know bacon and eggs is a thing, but when that egg grows up, we win with a whopping buttermilk chicken sandwich topped with thick cut big boy bacon, avocado smash, and chipotle mayo — and we dig in like nobody’s business.

Lilly’s

169 Mamaroneck Ave, White Plains; 914.997.5600

For a proper weekend brunch brekkie (in perfect harmony with the ornate chandeliers, casual high-top tables, and cozy exposed brick), consider a breakfast pizza called The Benny that goes like this: Canadian bacon, chopped eggs, cream, garlic, hollandaise sauce, parmesan, paprika, and chives. (Let’s pause to breathe.) Handmade gluten-free crust is available by request, and a complimentary Bloody Mary or mimosa makes it a brunch for the books.

No, you’re not trapped in a fever dream, that really is bacon on a doughnut — a maple glazed doughnut, natch. And you can get it when this family-owned, small-batch artisanal doughnut biz pops up around town. Stay awake, people.

Red Horse by David Burke

221 Main St, White Plains; 914.467.5713

At his first Westchester restaurant, Chef David Burke lets it all hang out — bacon style. And who can resist thick-cut, tender strips of bacon served hanging from his signature table-top clothesline? We know we can’t. Add in a luscious black pepper maple glaze, pickle, and lemon, and we find ourselves at the culinary intersection of kitsch and just.can’t.stop.

Rooster’s Market

48 Gedney Way, White Plains; 914.949.7202

We can’t talk about bacon without the image of a traditional, tried-and-true bacon, egg, and cheese sammie entering the conversation. For a BEC without any frills, look no further than The Roo. It’s as classic as classic gets with two eggs, bacon, and American cheese. Extra napkins and SPK are entirely on you.

Smokehouse Tailgate Grill

320 Mamaroneck Ave, Mamaroneck; 914.314.1655
587 North Ave, New Rochelle; 914.813.8686

These grill bosses know their meat like nobody’s business and, when they cook up their signature, super thick-cut pastrami bacon, we drop everything and order two. Reuben, who?

Southern Table

39 Marble Ave, Pleasantville; 914.618.3355

When we’re torn between breakfast and lunch, we choose brunch (duh), specifically at this downhome classic where mac ‘n cheese is served topped with crisp bacon, scallions, and a sunny side up egg.

21 Campwoods Rd, Ossining; 914.762.4000

Two words: Bacon. Biscuits. ‘Nuff said, we think. But, for the gastronomically curious, the bacon is indeed baked into the biscuit just like you hoped, and the world is truly your oyster in terms of how you’d like to down ‘em. Consider them savory, fluffy bookends for a chicken sammie or as thick, edible coasters under a poached egg. It’s really your call; we’ll be with you every step of the way.

At this old-school scoop shop on Valhalla’s petite main drag, 30 or so flavors of all-natural ice cream are churned daily, with the perennially popular, aptly named Let’s Do Brunch born from maple-syrup-flavored ice cream that’s sublimely speckled with bits of bacon and cinnamon French toast. Let’s also make it double scoop, shall we?
