This weekend’s sunny, warm weather was a welcome relief to the cold, snowy winter we have endured in the Northeast. One of my favorite things to do once the weather warms up on Long Island is to go to Sunday brunch. I have a couple of favorite standbys, but this weekend I felt like trying something new. After scouting a few locations, I decided to try The Fifth Season in Port Jefferson, NY. Within minutes of looking at the menu I was hooked: chocolate mascarpone stuffed French toast with salted caramel drizzle, almond butterfinger crunch and Vermont maple syrup. This was not your typical brunch menu, but the food was excellent.
After brunch, taking a leisurely stroll through historic Port Jefferson to check out the shops and see the water is always a nice way to spend an afternoon.
