Nestled among the relaxing, scenic Finger Lakes and Canandaigua Wine Trail, Brown Hound Bistro and its imaginative chefs cull flavorful ingredients from the tasty bounty of local sources. Park your stomach vessel in the intimate interior of the bistro's enchanting, century-old dining domicile, or take in panoramic views of the countryside from its spacious patio as you rub your eyeballs along the dinner menu. Various edibles tantalize the tongue in the tapas plate, including warm goat cheese, homemade hummus, and kalamata-artichoke tapenade ($9). The bistro duck adorns its succulent maple-leaf skin-on duck breast with a balsamic orange-blossom-honey pan sauce ($19 petite, $23 full), and The Incredible Wellington flouts modesty by stuffing its kingly beef filet and royal blue-cheese-and-mushroom duxelle inside a golden puff pastry ($23 petite, $28 full).
The extensive breakfast and lunch menu lets you start the day's fire with sparks of local and organic Mountain Rise Granola infused with nuts, fresh and dried fruit, and Maple Hill Farm’s yogurt ($6), or soak up the previous night's revelry with Wild Bills Hangover, a savory omelette blast of eggs, bacon, cheddar, and banana peppers ($8). Lunch noshers can snuggle up to the tongue-comforting Sweet Grass Lambburitto, which dons local and grass-fed lamb ($9). Brown Hound Bistro accentuates the casual vibe of any meal with knowledgeable and attentive service.
