Editor's Note: The following is a press release from the Daily Fare.
Located in the Bethel Metro North train station and easily accessible with ample free parking, Daily Fare has been providing customers with morning coffee, baked goods and prepared meals-to-go since 2009. All this experience and experimentation has led chef owner Robin Grubard to a revelation: people love her homemade scones and want more. So, instead of acting as supporting players, scones are now the centerpiece of Daily Fare.
"What Ben & Jerry's did for ice cream, we're doing for scones," Grubard said, announcing a new menu for breakfast and lunch. "We're having a lot of fun with over-the-top combinations and flavor mashups that you just won't find anywhere else. We're building an entire menu around the concept."
A ancient and traditional bread with its origins in the British Isles, scones have historically been fairly, well, drab. But depending on the day, Chef Grubard's offerings can include the traditional (mixed berry or currant), paired with more exotic possibilities such as the "William and Kate" that features imported Cadbury chocolate and English toffee (optionally dipped in chocolate, for the truly indulgent), or the "Wakin' Bacon" with bacon, Vermont cheddar and fresh chive. There are currently over 20 varieties possible that vary based on the chef's whim, or whatever is freshest at the farmers' market. All can be special ordered with a day's notice.
The beauty of these scones is they are not limited to breakfast anymore; customers can now enjoy their favorite bread with hearty lunch offerings. Daily Fare’s new lunch menu builds on the foundation of the homemade scone, with cold and hot open sandwiches like "Thanksgiving Anytime" with roasted turkey breast, gravy and cranberry chutney... an artisanal homemade corned-beef featuring house-made coarse mustard... and the “Bombay Flambe” - a twist on the traditional "sloppy joe" featuring ground turkey, pistachios, raisins and mildly spicy Indian seasonings - all served over a split multigrain scone (or your choice from the daily selection).
Grubard is excited by the reception she's already received to the innovative and eclectic new menu. Daily Fare also continues to provide custom catering for parties and events, and of course their unique blend of locally roasted coffee, homemade muffins, and other “Morning Fare.”
The new menu can be found at http://dailyfare.net. Daily Fare is located at 13 Durant Avenue in the Bethel Train Station, and is open from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.
