Fond is debuting its new food and drink menus for fall. Among the appetizer highlights; escargot with bacon, apple and butternut squash and crispy veal sweetbreads with sweet and sour eggplants and yogurt. This seasons risotto, which if you’re in the know, you know is a must order, is with truffle, maitake and hazelnut. For main courses, the sea scallops with fregola sarda, summer squash and piquillo pepper stand out, as does the pork belly with Okinawan sweet potatoes, escarole and Dijon jus.
The cocktail list is also revamped for fall. The spiced pumpkin martini sounds of the season but we’re probably ordering The Southern (Bulleit bourbon, Averna Amaro and Port) first.
In addition to a la carte, Fond offers two tasting menu options. Five courses for $57 (wine pairing for $25) or seven courses for $67 (wine pairing for $30).
