Best Bites Fall 2013: County

The new chef at County, Jan Feshan, is creating superlative bites, including these sliders on the brunch menu. Cute addition to Flatiron.

Best Bites Fall 2013: Trattoria Il Mulino

At Il Mulino’s new location in Flatiron: This was available on the specials menu: Mixed Seafood and Vegetables in a Squid Ink sauce. Awesome. Hope they bring it back.

Best Bites Fall 2013: East Pole

Couldn’t resist ordering the Scotch Egg appetizer at East Pole—brought me back to my travels in Edinburgh. Be forewarned, though, when this place is at capacity it is quite noisy.

Best Bites Fall 2013: Grace Gaelic Hospitality

Grace: Murray Hill has a new amazing REAL Irish pub with distinctive food and spectacular cocktails created by an all-female mixologist team. Best bar bites to accompany sips, hands down. So far I have tried the super Crispy Lamb Meatballs accompanied by Tzatziki and Salsa Verde. On different visit enjoyed the Fried Oyster Sliders on Sesame Profiteroles with Cucumber Slaw and Tartar. It’s a tie between these two... Kitchen open till 2am. A welcome addition to the area.

Best Bites Fall 2013: Hecho en Dumbo
