Hatch in Huntington expands to late-night brunch
Hatch, centered on breakfast, expands into an exotic new concept: dinner. Since its debut in 2018, the Huntington restaurant has served eggs, pancakes and more until 3pm (4pm on weekends) but starting this week it will open from 5pm to 10pm for “Hatch after Dark” on Fridays and Saturdays.
Hatch’s evening menu has little overlap with that served during the day, but the half-dozen chicken dishes will remind discerning diners that owner Lessing’s Hospitality Group also operates Lucky Clucker, the ghost kitchen that delivers birds. around Babylon and Stony Brook.
From the Chicken Coop: Chicken tenders (Nashville hot or not) with white Alabama barbecue sauce and four dishes in which fried chicken is sandwiched between waffles. “The American Dream” features chicken topped with bacon, cheddar, jalapeño, caramelized onions, and waffles with cheddar, bacon, and scallions. .
Cheese lovers, your waffles have arrived: “Kinda Cheesy” features a filling of Cheddar, Monterey Jack and smoked Gouda oozing Cheddar waffles.
The other menu category is “The Dog House”, dressing Wagyu franks with smoked brisket chili and cheddar cheese (“Chili Joel”) or mustard, relish, sweet onions, tomatoes, pickles and banana (“Jumpman”) peppers, to name a few. .
There are also a handful of less decadent bowls and salads and three over-the-top waffle-based desserts. Almost everything is under $15.
Mimosas, coffee- and juice-inspired cocktails (“Cold Fashioned” with bourbon, cold brew and more; pumpkin latte et al) have always graced the menu, but now they’re joined by five fortified chocolates and the “Therapy Session “, a dose for the whole table consisting of champagne, Earl Gray infused vodka, pear liqueur, lemon juice and vanilla syrup. Beer and wine are also available.
Hatch is at 286 Main St., Huntington, 631-424-0780, hatchbrunch.com.
