With the new season comes the announcement that South Street’s Supper has assembled a new, seasonal cocktail menu and brought in some new blood behind the bar. Newly-minted “bar manager and libations specialist,” Tara Przybyszewski (ex of Zahav and Tria), has completely redone the restaurant’s bar program with an eye toward incorporating fresh juices and the bounty of the restaurant’s connection with Blue Elephant Farm. And today, she has released a seasonal, autumn cocktail menu that’s all brand new as well.

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).

Noord has achieved its fair share of positive reviews throughout the spring and summer but there’s no doubt that the Dutch/Nordic cuisine of the Passyunk BYOB is going to be best suited for cooler months. Here’s a look at chef Joncarl Lachman’s first fall menu, it’s all about the snert! Not really, it’s just that we love saying snert.
There are few things worse than a pig done wrong. You can probably plow through an overcooked chicken. You can even find some semblance of flavor in a rubbery steak. But pork? That’s a no-go. Too long on the flame, and you’ll lose all its flavor, it’ll induce cotton-mouth, and you’ll find yourself chewing, forever, on a piece you had to rip off with your teeth like some sort of barbarian. Pork can only be perfect, and that’s what’s so beautiful about it.
At Cochon, you’ll always find good pork. Especially on their new Fall menu. Check it out after the jump.
