    Comfort food for me is a hot dog! Dirty Franks sounds like a wiener! (yuk, yuk) After that some Shaw’s crab stack with some hot sauce may warm me up~!

    Roasted Pumpkin and Apple Soup with Bacon, from Spinelli’s Deli because it’s absolutely delicious and the incredible flavors just scream autumn! It was perfect on a rainy day like yesterday! Hot dogs from Dirty Franks! I ate hot dogs like crazy when I was a kid, and the idea of going to a restaurant and eating a hot dog is one of my favorite things!

    My husband and I are making our very first trip to Refectory tonight for a celebration dinner so I chose Lobster bisque their menu…we LOVE lobster and we LOVE creamy bisque! Second, I’d choose the pot pie on Babushka’s menu…my mom always that for me growing up :-)

  4. Jackie B says

    The lamb stew from Black Creek sounds like the perfect warm and comforting dish. I always associate lamb with cold weather. The cassoulet at Barcelona is another one, but of course, if cassoulet is on a menu I am almost always going to choose it.

    Definitely the Mac & Pig from Skillet… nothing like stick-to-your-ribs mac & cheese to warm you up, and the chorizo adds a little heat that just bumps it up another notch, and with some of Skillet’s hot sauce I’m sure it would be perfect. If I was still chilly after that I would roll over to Hubbard Grille for some of their Roasted Butternut Squash soup with blue cheese & pistachios. That dish conjures up images of fresh from the oven squashes steaming, and I can’t imagine something more warming than that.

    I would say first Babushka’s Homemade Chicken Pot Pie because I am a simply lady and on a chilly day when I’m hungry I don’t want to mess with fru-fru stuff like Alpaca Terrine, just get down to business, you know? And the 2nd item would have to be Flglio’s Warm Apple Walnut Cake. What about that DOESN’T say ‘It’s fall, please cuddle up by the fire and fill your pie hole with me’?

    I have to go with Dirty Franks. I’d feel like it’s summer again with fun summer time food like their specialty hot dogs. Hand cut french fries are always hot and delicious and baklava always reminds me of the sweets to come around Christmas time.

  8. Jennifer says

    Mac & Pig sounds deliciously comforting and I trust that anything Alana would prepare as a daily “surprise” would not disappoint!

  9. Leanna says

    The Jury Room’s Grilled Mac n Cheese with BBQ Flank Steak Sandwich and Side Salad and Babushka’a Kitchen’s Loaded Potato Pierogi – yum!

  10. Kate says

    Pumpkin & Roasted Apple with Bacon Soup from Spinelli’s would fill the void on a cold day and bacon makes everything better! And then the Pork Belly Corn Dogs from Black Creek Bistro remind me of childhood fairs, but a little more sophisticated.

  11. Matt says

    Grilled Mac n Cheese with BBQ Flank Steak Sandwich – Jury Room with Roasted Pumpkin and Apple Soup with Bacon from SpinElli’s. Mac N Cheese and BBQ make me think of summer…pumpkin, apple, and bacon in one soup? That’s a full house = WARM.

  12. says

    Babushka’s menu looks delicious. Nice doughy comfort food: Pierogies, both savory and sweet, a breaded pork chop OR chicken pot pie. Color me there! I love fall’s comfort foods!

  13. Jaylyn says

    I think G. Michaels Pan Roasted Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin sounds fantastic. You can’t beat sides like baked beans and collard greens! I’m also intrigued by Black Creek Bistro’s Pork Belly Corndogs. I wasn’t sure there was any way to improve a corndog (seriously – who doesn’t like corndogs?) but I think incorporating pork belly just might be the answer.

  14. AndiD says

    The Tortilla Soup at Barcelona and the Mac & Cheese at The Jury Room sound delicious.

    I’d love to see a Dine Originals for breakfast/brunch….I’d go everyday!

  15. says

    Tip Top’s Bread Pudding with Cherry-Whiskey Creme Anglaise had me at “Cherry-Whiskey Creme Anglaise”. I am also drooling over the Cream of Potato, Leek & Mushroom Soup w/ Bacon and Gruyere from G. Michael’s. Yum.
