  • Rising Classic: Woodstock Finds an Instant Favorite in Pearl Moon

    Though the original plan was to open a live music venue and bar, Betsy and Scott Mitchell had to reconsider the concept for Pearl Moon when the pandemic hit. After months of renovation and drawn-out permit processes, Pearl Moon opened in mid-January, staffed by the Mitchells, their daughter and son-in-law, niece and nephew-in-law, plus a few friends. This family affair is dishing up elevated American diner fare all day long, from hearty breakfast choices like huevos rancheros and short-stack pancakes, to lunch picks like the pork loin sandwich and the reuben with house-made corned beef, right through to Happy Hour selections like wings and nachos.

  • Black Dot Hits the Spot with Single-Origin Coffee and Brunch Bites in Stone Ridge
  • Black Dot Hits the Spot with Single-Origin Coffee and Brunch Bites in Stone Ridge

    Since Carthaigh Coffee closed, Stone Ridge hasn't had a proper coffee spot. Sure there's Bodacious Bagels, where you can get New York deli-style drip, with cream and sugar added for you, along with your bagel and schmear—which has its charm. But for the espresso-fiending, latte-loving types, there was nothing. Then on Boxing Day 2020, Black Dot opened its doors—a belated holiday present, serving up single-origin coffee and tasty tartines on Bread alone baguettes in a white-washed minimalist space.
