HARVEST MOON FRENCH BREAD AND BRICK OVEN PIZZA PUTS CHESTNUT RIDGE ON THE MAP
Who would have thought that the sleepy Village of Chestnut Ridge would be the place to go when searching for authentic artisan Brick Oven Italian Pizza and French baguettes, batards, and boules? That’s right, Harvest Moon, our well established, local catering service owned and operated by Dave Venitelli, has recently expanded his customers’ options by creating a virtual culinary haven. He and his staff opened a Café, Bakery, and Pizzeria all in one called La Maison du Pain. Here, you will encounter a unique atmosphere teaming with delicacies that will tickle your nose and palate! If you’re looking for bread, I already mentioned baguettes, batards, and boules. They also bake ciabattas and a variety of rolls, both large and small. They sell croissants loaded with butter and/or chocolate, and a variety of pastries, muffins and the Most Amazing Cinnamon Rolls! Once you’ve had one of these, you’ll forget about Cinnabon! These are really the BEST! If you’re looking for French pastries, pies, and cakes, look no further! They even offered little individual Chocolate Mousses last weekend. The best part is you never know what you will find. Oh…did I mention the Biscotti? Orange, Pistachio and Chocolate. Perfetti!
Now, let me tell you about the Pizza. If you want authentic Neopolitan Pizza, here you go! Dave has installed a wood fired, brick oven from Italy that fires up to 900 degrees. The dough is hand made with flour from Italy, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses made in house, and all kinds of other homemade goodies. This is the real deal.
Stop in for cappuccino, teas, lunch or dinner. There is a daily menu of soups, quiches, sandwiches and whatever Chef Dave has decided to cook that morning. The ambiance is rustic and cozy with a warm feeling of community. It’s well worth the visit. So hop in your car and head over to Chestnut Ridge to eat the best authentic Italian Pizza and French bread in Rockland County. Conveniently located at 811 Chestnut Ridge Road in Chestnut Ridge, across the street from DaVinci’s Italian Restaurant and just beyond The Bulldog Café, Yoga Synthesis, and B & B Pools.
