- I welcome the mild fall weather which is a pleasant escape from the sometimes brutal summer heat.
- I get to wear the latest fall fashions--I also have an excuse to go buy the "must-have" boot/bootie.
- Halloween--I have finally narrowed my costume down to two options: Drag Queen or Effie Trinket from Hunger Games.
- Unveiling of new Fall/Seasonal menus at all the restaurants!
I seriously can not get enough Pumpkin Spice, Salted Caramel, Apple or Butternut Squash--bring it on!
I knew I needed a good meal before visiting the "Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years" exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art so I decided to start my adventure at the The Plaza Food Hall by Todd English.

I absolutely LOVE this place and I don't know why I do not visit more frequently. It reminds me of a miniature version of Harrods Food Hall in London which is one of my Top 5 favorite places in the world. On this particular visit I brought my appetite and a friend who would be my excuse for ordering multiple entrees. I asked our waiter for his favorite thing and I could tell just from the sparkle in his eyes when he made his recommendation that I was not going to be disappointed. I was glad to see that his suggestions fit right in with my little Autumn Theme:
I don't exactly know what is in this drink but it is delicious. The Apple Butter made it even better! The copper cup was also a nice touch.

This was definitely lick your plate good--although I do not think that behavior is appropriate for The Plaza Hotel! Brown Butter, Sage and Parmesan all wrapped up into mouth watering pasta is truly worth every single carbohydrate. I am glad my friend and I decided to get the larger portion because we probably would have stopped speaking to each other if we had shared the smaller one.
