Went to visit The Bedford Post Inn for brunch, the week-old restaurant that actor Richard Gere has put his name to, on Rt. 121 just outside of Bedford Village, and was thrilled to see super-chef and restaurateur Jean-Georges show up with a group...Gere was nowhere to be seen, but the meal itself was a delight! Just the Cafe is open right now, while the larger structure of the vintage mansion is being renovated...my partner and I shared the Warm Endive, Fennel & Blue Cheese Tart with arugula salad, and a decadent Natural Herondale Hamburger with cheddar, onion mostarda & bacon...on the side we had an order of the house made French fries with truffled aioli. For desset we shared the Apple Walnut Crostada...Fresh tasting and lovely! Everything on the table was delicious, really! The burger itself I would rank among the best I've had lately. There are pastries, cookies and cakes for sale as well...The Cafe itself is just open for breakfast, lunch and brunch right now. A lovely drive from southern Westchester too...
