Food & Drinks You Must Have in September
September is such a special month. Sure its the unofficial end of summer, and the too early unofficial kick off to fall. This summer was full of incredible, life changing eating that we cannot wait to fill you in on. Pub food is upgraded at Social 37, a legend Denino's is still the Jersey Shore's favorite pizza, and getting away to upstate NY is going to be in your favor now that it is prime time for apple picking, and wine-ing down in a flannel at the states most beloved wineries.
Social 37 is the answer to your dreams. Farm to table style food, retail price wine, local craft beer, and a cool atmosphere. We went all in for their Duck Burger with Truffle Fries. They sell bottles of wine to dine with at retail price, averaging at $12-20 per bottle! If you don't finish the full bottle, you get to take the rest home! The Duck Burger, was salty juicy, perfection, topped with Truffle Cheese, buttery Pickles, and fresh Arugula. The first bite was so glorious, and such a decadent chow down. The decor of the restaurant is far from ordinary. Check this place out before the summer ends!
Denino's does pizza perfection. They always have a crowd, and we see exactly why. First of all, it’s a bring your own, which that is always a plus in our book! You bring the wine or the beer and Denino's will bring the perfect meal to pair with. Pizza is their specialty, though they do some killer Italian classics such as melt in your mouth Eggplant Rollantini. We are addicted to their White Sausage & Broccoli Rabe pie, which you can also get on their red sauce pie! The Margherita Pie, is another popular go-to for Denino’s customers, and it’s BANGIN’. Denino’s is also has a location in NYC and Staten Island since 1937.
Gusto Grill is by far ordinary. When it comes to a diversely, sophisticated menu, you gotta know the must haves. Gusto Grill showcases local ingredients, including specialized local booze. The Grilled Octopus is absolute dynamite! We’ve never experienced grilled oct quite this tender and flavorful. The grilled octopus is comparable to a meaty Chilean Sea Bass! Rich, tender, never before experienced bite. Being the carb crazy girls we are, we had to go in for the Goat Cheese & Fig Flatbread. The tang of the goat cheese, was the perfect star to the side kick caramalized onions, and sweet figs.
You might be dreading the thought of “back to school” or “back to work”, but no need to being that Dig Inn is here for your lunch and dinner breaks. Dig Inn is good quality fast food. Sure, you may be in a hurry, but you don’t need to sacrifice having a bad meal on a time crunch. Megan loves their Meatballs, and Mac & Cheese. Kelly goes crazy for their Salmon, Roasted Broccoli, and of course the Mac & Cheese. No matter how healthy we are trying to eat, the Mac & Cheese is a MUST HAVE.
GETAWAY THIS MONTH TO...
SKANEATELES, NEW YORK
Skaneatles is a beautiful town in the heart of the Finger Lakes. This time of year is particularly beautiful, as pumpkin and apple picking season are prime! Cider donuts, and the BEST apple pie of your life are at Beak & Skiff Apple Orchard. Upstate New York is very famous for their beloved wineries, with gorgeous views, good wine, and a guaranteed good time. We highly recommend Izzo's White Barn Winery.
Cure your September blues with the Prosecco Cocktail at Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza. Italian Prosecco, Sweet Peach Puree & a splash of Chianti make for the perfection combination. Pizza is not the only thing they do well! This cocktail is everything that you could want in a glass of booze. It pairs so perfectly with their pizza and chicken wannngs!
