If there’s a season when New Yorkers look their best, it’s fall and the holiday season, hands down. We table the faffing about of summer, put on our crisp jeans and smart coats, and get back in the hustle. Accordingly, the next three months have a lot in store for Northern Spy. On October 8th, we hosted a beautiful dinner for Sherryfest, and if you were one of the lucky people in attendance you got to eat this, one of the tastiest little dishes in our recent memory. For the rest of October we’re participating in Heritage Food’s “No Goat Left Behind” aka “Goatober” initiative, with goat meat specials all month long. October 18th kicks off Cider Week, a celebration of all things cider organized by Glynwood in the Hudson Valley. We’ll be pouring an expanded selection of amazing domestic and European ciders for all ten days of the event (yes, that’s more than a week…don’t ask) and hosting a special reservations-only, four course Cider Dinner on October 23rd. Looking to November, we’re staying open for Thanksgiving again and providing a holiday home for locavores, turkavores, vegetarians, pescatarians, and anyone who just don’t want to cook. Stay tuned for an update soon on this year’s menu. And hardly a moment after putting away the post-Thanksgiving stretch-waistband pants, we’re into our Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve dinners. As in previous years, Christmas Eve will be a low-key but heartwarming three-course dinner, and New Year’s Eve will get quite a bit fancier and more festive, as it should. We hope to see as many of you as possible throughout the fall for lunch, brunch, dinner, or any one of these special events.
