Fall Squash Soup

Area Four’s four-squash soup will do the trick this fall—butternut, buttercup, acorn and carnival varietals are pureed and topped with a seasonal fruit compote made of cranberries, apples, pears and maple syrup.

Shaved Fall Vegetable Salad

Bambara plates up fall flavors with just a hint of pumpkin for good measure—the shaved fall vegetable salad shows off the harvest with farm-fresh produce, dried fruits, Asian pears and a serving of pumpkin seeds in a mustard vinaigrette.

Pumpkin & Apple Pie

Chef Sara Kotcher’s pumpkin pie certainly ain’t the store-bought dessert you grew up with. This take on the Thanksgiving table favorite is a linear work of art that incorporates pecan mousse, maple anglaise, whipped cream, cardamom and pecan Cracker Jacks.

Foie Gras Tart

Menton’s savory foie feature puts the fancy in fall. A tart shell is filled with foie gras mousse, then topped with pumpkin puree, marinated mushrooms and more foie (this time, it’s seared). Toasted pecans and a whiskey maple syrup finish off the decadent dish.
