Stephanie Fitzpatrick first met Caleb Kimble when he became a customer of her shop, Letti’s Ice Cream in Red Hook. At the time, Kimble co-owned The Heirloom Café in Germantown and had started to source the dessert from Fitzpatrick’s café.
When Kimble, a 2016 graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, revealed he was looking for a new business partner to join the café, Fitzpatrick, who had always wanted to own a restaurant, jumped at the opportunity.
Soon after, things at the café started to pick up, but since it was housed inside Tousey Winery, the business was limited by the size of the kitchen and café seating. Fitzpatrick and Kimble began searching for a new location in which to expand their venture. After a lot of consideration, they decided to renovate the old home of Another Fork in the Road in Milan.
Now with a new location, a new name, and new menu, Cider Bros Roadhouse focuses on serving Southern comfort food in a rustic space. The restaurant has built a following for its breakfast and lunch fare like bananas foster French toast, blue catfish with cajun spices, and smoked brisket mac ’n’ cheese. But come September, be on the lookout for a new dinner menu, which the partners plan to roll out this month.
