In this episode, Emily and Madeline discuss all of the restaurant openings we’re looking forward to this Fall, plus all of the special events, dishes and flavors that mean that autumn is coming. We also discuss “hipster diner” culture, some of the best food pop-ups of the year, and the very best things that we ate this week (and there were quite a few!).
It’s officially the Fall season, and we talk about what restaurants are opening this fall (hello, Iron Born!). We’re also finding apple cider and pumpkin everywhere, including at Page Dairy Mart and Duck Donuts, and share where to find the best fall cocktails. A few notes from this section: We’re officially obsessed with Rivendale Farms’s ice cream and if you make one thing this autumn, make NPR’s Pumpkin Stuffed with Everything Good.
We discuss this piece in the New York Times, which is all about diner culture, and how it’s seeing a resurgence in the Instagram age. Looking for a good diner in Pittsburgh? These 21 are some of our favorites.
Madeline talks about these 19 food pop-ups that she tracked this summer, and visited two of our favorites.
