1/2 Priced Wine with Brunch in Westchester

Tired of the cheap Champagne served at most brunches?

How about 50% off your favorite California wine?

Just 25 minutes north of Manhattan is this fantastic restaurant

Ruby's Oyster Bar & Bistro - 45 Purchase St Rye, NY 10580(914) 921-4166

First of all Ruby’s has amazing food everyday with fresh seafood and oysters from all over the country.

Then on Sundays they have an amazing brunch with items like Lobster Club, Poached Eggs over Shrimp & Crab hash, Portobello Mushroom burger. Lobster omelet and so much more.

But what has me coming back is the half-price wine on Sundays during brunch!

That’s right enjoy your favorites at 50% off! And if you don’t finish the bottle they cork it back up and bag it for take out!

So normally if you ordered two glasses of Chardonnay at $11 you’re paying $22.

Instead why not order a bottle of Sonoma Cutrer for $22 and get a whole bottle for the price of two glasses. Or go big white with the 2003 Rombauer Chardonnay priced at $60, but its ½ price! Way to go big spender!

Why stop there – since you can take it home how about a Flowers Pinot or jump into the big California Cabs like a 2003 Joseph Phelps Cabernet priced at $90, but at ½ off it becomes a steal – that was my choice today and a few weeks ago my choice was the Rodney Strong 2001 Symmetry a nice blend of the 5 noble Bordeaux Grapes also in the $90 range.

The list has some great wines like Silver Oak, Beringer Private Reserve back to 1994, Opus One, Howell Mountain and when its 50% off the regular price you can’t find these deals anywhere!

Rye is also accessible from the Metro North line which drops you back in Grand Central, Manhattan.
