Appetite for Autumn: What’s New on Fall Menus


Fall is the time when restaurants turn up both the comfort and the creativity on their menus, and it’s the best time of year to dig in to?a pot of stew, a plate of braised short ribs or a bowl of pasta — a crackling fire in the fireplace optional.

So when the temperature starts dropping and the wind starts whipping, duck into your favorite neighborhood restaurant and order a dish from the new fall menu. You’re sure to warm up from the inside out.

My colleagues and I talked to more than 40 restaurants for stories about fall dining in each of our local Sunday Express sections this week, and I’ll be posting the articles here on the blogs, too.  Today, we’ll see what’s warming us up in Northern Westchester. Stay tuned for the post.
