A trip to the quaint, quiet town of New Paltz to visit a friend away for his final year of studies brought me to this beautiful dish last spring. Sunday morning, as we awoke, I immediately inquired about what I eloquently described as “the local breakfast spot.” My friend of twelve plus years, knowing me too well, took me to the described locale despite my minimal description. Main Street Bistro located in the heart of New Paltz was this “spot” and all of New Paltz knew as such. Although we waited and waited, it was completely worth it as this dish here can clearly testify. I ordered the English muffin with crab cake topped with a poached egg, andouille sausage covered in a red pepper hollandaise sauce with a side of home fries, as if that wasn’t enough. It was an absolutely ridiculous yet delicious, unique breakfast I had never experienced before. All the different ingredients sound intimidating at first, but they work surprisingly well together. The runny yoke (not so surprisingly) is my favorite part of the dish as the crab cake and egg combination was distinctive, savory and flavorful. Red pepper hollandaise was a new one for me, but it obviously didn’t disgrace its namesake. I would definitely recommend the dish and this restaurant for anyone who is visiting the New Paltz area.
