Forget sweaters and changing leaves. Here are ten telltale signs we know it’s fall in DC.
1. Dinner switches from gazpacho to roasted chicken
2. Mike gets reacquainted with the Big Green Egg
3. After a summer of crabs at Quarterdeck and Tangier Island, our go-to seafood is oysters at Johnny’s Half Shell and mussels at Granville Moore’s.
4. Elizabeth starts baking again
5. Pumpkin beer!
6. We’re on the hunt for savory recipes starring leeks and butternut squash
7. We say good-bye to the basil lemontini and hello to the warm duck Rueben at the Poste bar
8. Too many local apples, not enough apple recipes
9. Kiss the sunglasses good-bye. We go from al fresco dining to cozy lounges and tea houses.
10. Fall colors bring road trips and local discoveries like Wasmund’s single malt applewood smoked whiskey.
