Even if you’re not big into pumpkin spice lattes, you can make the most of the gourd-eous season at Tresca, where they’ve just reintroduced their glorious Pumpkin Risotto (the OG celebration of pumpkin). Baked and served inside a sugar pumpkin, Rich Ansara‘s iconic fall staple features chicken, dried cranberries, cashews, caramelized onion, spinach, Vermont maple syrup and creamy risotto topped with shredded cheddar jack cheese.
Book a table for an autumnal feast — if you’re not into pumpkin in any of its forms, there’s plenty more to choose from. Tresca’s menu features old-world Italian recipes interpreted in Ansara’s own style for dishes that are both comforting and innovative. They’ve got an exceptional wine cellar and cocktails, too (including a pumpkin martini) so you can celebrate pumpkin spice season however you see fit.
