  • New Diner With a Twist


Billing their restaurant as a “finer diner,” chefs Natalie (Figgy) DiBenedetto and Jamie Parry are serving up breakfast and lunch dishes that are far removed from standard roadhouse fare: house-cured corned beef hash; sweet and savory crêpes; organic free-range turkey breast sandwiches with mushrooms and bacon. Sure, you can get a burger here, too — made with locally raised beef, and topped with an oven-roasted tomato. The well-executed menu should surprise no one: DiBenedetto — who owns the place — is a CIA grad and formerly ran Mina in Red Hook, while Parry once served French cuisine at swanky Montrachet in Manhattan. The duo’s insistence on using ingredients from local farms whenever possible seems to have caught the attention of the locals — the restaurant is often full for breakfast, especially on weekends.
