Fall is finally here, and it’s the season of change in more ways than one.
Chefs around the North Fork have been switching up their menus, making the most of local harvests and incorporating seasonal ingredients into new offerings.
Here are some dishes that you can look forward to tasting this fall:
1. Autumn Salad at Main Road Biscuit Co.
This soon-to-be-released autumn salad consists of roasted butternut squash, candied walnuts, chevre cheese, dried cranberries, and maple dijon vinaigrette. This seasonal dish, along with several others, are expected to be added to the menu this weekend.
