We’ll be playing in the snow before we know it and as the season begins to shift, it often means our appetites do too. Cravings for margaritas are replaced with those for hot toddies, gazpacho is replaced with hearty chili and stews, and grilling gives way to spit-roasted leg of lamb. We’ve rounded up a few fall menu items from area restaurants that are sure to comfort, keep you warm, and help get you ready for a great winter ahead.
