There’s something about the crispness of an Autumn day that somehow makes us crave warmth – and that warmth is often satiated by certain flavors.

For me, squash – whether an Acorn or a Butternut – is one of the quintessential ingredients of seasonal cuisine in the fall months. It’s incredibly versatile with it’s sweet notes, soft texture, and earthy colors. I find it accompanies entrees tremendously well as a side, and it also adds depth as an ingredient in Risottos or Raviolis.

With my moderate squash obsession, I’m pulling these flavors into a couple of dishes here at Flatiron.

  • We’ve got it alongside the Joyce Farms Chicken Breast.
  • We’ll also have butternut squash on the Ricotta dumpling (Gnudi) dish… coming soon!
  • From week to week, our team will also be utilizing the rich flavors in our seasonal soups.

We’ll look forward to having you in soon – and please stop one of us and ask if you’re coming in specifically to seek out those warmer flavors of fall. We’ll be happy to make some good, seasonal recommendations. See you soon!
