With all the disruption to the dining scene that the pandemic has brought, you might have missed this winter’s debut of brunch service at Mirbeau Inn & Spa Rhinebeck’s signature restaurant, Willow by Charlie Palmer. But if you’re looking for a new Sunday spot, the bistro-inspired menu offers an array of sophisticated French classics fit for capping off any weekend.

The menu features lovable brunch standbys like eggs Benedict and brioche stuffed French toast, as well as traditional savory Parisian fare like steak frites with herb butter. For those looking for something on the lighter side, the menu also has contemporary offerings like a grain bowl with farro, avocado, and radish alongside savory toasts like crab with avocado and their famous Brussels sprouts with agrodolce and chipotle aioli.

There’s also live music every Sunday from local Rhinebeck musicians like Steve Gravino and Rick Winne of "The Duo" and Karl Allweier of the Rhinebeck School of Music. To complete the picturesque European-style experience, the restaurant also has limited outdoor seating on the canopy-shaded deck, so arrive early to snag a table there if weather permits. The restaurant also currently offers in-dining room seating, which reopened in July with enhanced safety protocols.

Brunch at Willow by Charlie Palmer is offered from 11:30am-3pm every Sunday. For reservations, call 877-MIRBEAU.

  • Market Watch: At Long Last, Accord Gets a Grocery Store

    The Rondout Valley corridor running between Marbletown and Wawarsing has long been a food desert, ironic for a region historically famed for its fertile soil and still dotted with farms. So the opening of Accord Market on the small hamlet’s Main Street earlier this month is understandably BIG NEWS for anyone who lives within a 10-mile radius. With a focus on sustainability and locally sourcing, this small market aims to stock an inventory replete with everything you need for your basic weekly shop, from bulk cleaning supplies to beer and fresh produce.
