Eat Organic in the Finger Lakes at The Stonecat Cafe

November 9, 2012 by

When you need a break from wine tasting in New York’s Finger Lake region, fuel up with organic, regional cuisine at the Stonecat Cafe in Hector, NY.

Once a roadside fruit stand, the Stonecat pays homage to it’s former incarnation with some design details (like coolers that greet you when you walk in) and its focus on fresh, local food. Come for dishes like┬áduck confit with sweet potato cakes and grilled baramundi in a lime coconut curry sauce, served over purple sticky rice.

If you’re interested in something a little more casual, try a grass fed burger or check out the Stonecat’s “Cult Classics” menu, which serves up 8-hour slow cooked pulled pork slathered in house-made BBQ sauce and served on a griddled bun, or the cornmeal crusted catfish, pan fried and served with mayo infused with local peppers.

Or come during Sunday brunch, when mainstays like french toast, made from focaccia and topped with NY maple syrup, and Stonecat Egg Louisianne, griddled cornbread topped with poached eggs, andouille sausage and hollandaise sauce, make an appearance. Try showing up an hour after opening, when the live jazz is in full swing.

For the best seat in the house, head to the deck for dinner where you can linger over your plate, or a glass of Finger Lakes wine, while watching the sun dip behind the western shore of Lake Seneca.
