Heirloom Heritage Hen Eggs
Brighten your weekend with a pastel brunch—les oeufs de tes rêves! Le Coq Rico will be celebrating the high season for pasture, by debuting a selection of Heritage Eggs. Now through September 21st, our brunch menu will allow guests to taste the “egg-bow”: a rainbow of heirloom eggs from Hudson Valley heritage hens.
Always working close to the terroir, Chef Westermann will offer vitamin-packed eggs, sourced from a small family farmer in Hudson Valley. His respectful, humane way
of raising birds, allows us to share this wonderful tasting adventure with our guests. The relationships we have fostered with our providers, and the quality specifications followed, allow us to offer the most exclusive farm-to-table poultry products, directly from the source. Chef Westermann believes that these rare brown and blue pastured eggs are best enjoyed sunny-side up au naturel, or served with a touch of wildness—mushroom fricassée and angel-hair potatoes.
