Everything Pumpkin

A while back, the Los Angles board had a post devoted to all things pumpkin. Pumpkin pie, bread, truffles, cake, mousse, ice cream...everything and anything. I just moved to NYC from Hawaii, and in Hawaii we're not so big on pumpkin. But here in the city? It seems to be everywhere now that fall has arrived (hooray!!) I've eaten my share of pumpkin pie at City Bakery, Pinisi, Veniero's, and a bunch more. Pumpkin bread from the Greenmarket. Pumpkin pancakes at Cafe Orlin, and pumpkin waffles at Clinton St Baking.....


Where do you get your pumpkin fix?

  1. I'm actually not a huge pumpkin fan, but I know Shake Shack has a pumpkin custard on Sundays in November, and I saw some great looking pumpkin pie at Bird Bath in the W Vill yesterday (they might have it at City Bakery as well).
    Via Emilia has pumpkin pasta

        Just had some pumpkin sorbet at Il Lab this week. Very good.

    2. I remember having delicious pumpkin desserts at Union Square Cafe and Ouest in the past. And let's not forget the pumpkin cupcake at Sugar Sweet Sunshine.

      1. Pumpkin cheesecake at eileen's. i never think it of as the classic dense ny cheesecake but it is good.

        1. I've had pumpkin gelato before at Il Lab, but I haven't checked this year...

          Surely there are some good pumpkin soups, pastas, curries, stews and casseroles out there!

          1. I had a very good fennel and pumpkin salad the other night at Back Forty.

            And an absolutely delicious pumpkin Whoopie Pie from Baked (in Red Hook) last week.
