This fall, The Rare Bit in Dobbs Ferry, NY is introducing a new concept and menu to patrons. Steering away from its traditional British roots, The Rare Bit is now a neighborhood restaurant serving up gastropub inspired food and drinks. It prides itself in offering the quality of a well-prepared meal, the comfort of good company and the joy of a perfectly poured drink.
Now offering something for everyone in the community, there is now a wider variety of choices on the menu — from meatballs, to octopus salad, shrimp tacos and even a vegan burger.
“The purpose of the concept shift at The Rare Bit is to become a neighborhood restaurant that customers will want to keep coming back to while also staying true to our elevated dining roots,” said Scott Broccoli, Owner, The Rare Bit. “As a native of Dobbs Ferry, with an affinity to this community, my goal for The Rare Bit is to offer our friends and neighbors a variety of delicious menu options in a dynamic environment.”
In addition to the regular menu, brunch and weekly specials, The Rare Bit also offers a kid’s menu for children under 10 years old that features homemade, grass-fed chicken fingers and burgers; macaroni & cheese; fish and chips and more.
The Rare Bit is also a great place for hosting special occasions and parties with three distinct rooms that can accommodate parties of up to 60 guests. The Rare Bit is happy to work with patrons on customizing their event and menu to make any occasion memorable.
