Road Food: Where We’re Eating in November

During the Holidays we often finding ourselves spending more time eating out rather than cooking. And because this time of year is always a great excuse to try a new restaurant or a few with our loved ones, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite places to eat this month.

I spent a chunk of time in Connecticut when I was working at Fine Cooking magazine, and for this Angeleno, two things took me completely by surprise: It almost always snows on April Fool’s Day, and the ice cream shops close in October. I’m a year-round ice cream eater (nightly isn’t unusual), and relish a trip to our local McConnell’s, even in November. I think I’ve tried them all, and it just doesn’t get any better than their Sea Salt Cream and Cookies. –Laurie, CEO + Founder

Now that winter is practically upon us in Denver, I’m craving comfort food all day, every day. Enter: Coperta. This Southern Italian restaurant is cozy, unpretentious, and wonderfully authentic. They even import their sun-dried tomatoes from Italy! The pumpkin ravioli gives me all the fall feels, but the eggplant parmigiana is equally delicious. –Edie, Account Manager

It’s gotten downright chilly here in NYC, and I’m constantly craving curry. One of my favorite Indian curries is at Bombay Bread Bar. Their halibut, cauliflower and turmeric curry is just the thing to warm me up. –Netanya, Social Media Manager 

Noodle Village

One of my favorite things to do in NYC when it’s cold outside is get soup dumplings and noodle soup. A spot in Chinatown I absolutely love is Noodle Village. Their menu is extensive, but every dish feels like a warm hug. Get the soup dumplings, house fried rice, noodle soup, and congee! -Anna, Brand Strategist 

 

Road Food: Where We’re Eating

Being that our team is all over the country, we’re constantly sharing new restaurant recommendations with each other.  Here are some of the places we’ve been enjoying eating at lately.

Almost without fail, we do two things on Sunday mornings: Hit the Hollywood Farmers’ Market, and grab breakfast there at The Walrus and the Hedgehog. They get most all of their ingredients at the market, from bread to tomatoes, greens to eggs, which makes their food truly farm fresh and delicious! Laurie, CEO+ Founder

My husband and I recently spent the weekend in Aspen, Colorado. While every meal was memorable (and the backdrop equally impressive), my favorite lunch was at Spring Café. This bright, airy, and eco-friendly joint serves up feel good food: nutrient-dense smoothies, nourishing salads, hearty breakfast wraps, and the best dirty chai latte. Edie, Account Manager 

Since fall has finally arrived here in New York, I’ve had an urge to spend my weekends at farmers markets scouring all of the wonderful fall produce and in doing so, have discovered my new favorite bakery, She Wolf Bakery. Their rye bread is next level and their polenta loaf toasted with salted butter is my new treat and I don’t think it’s one I’m willing to share… Netanya, Social Media Manager

If you accuse me of rarely leaving the UES of NYC, then you’re not wrong. There’s almost everything you need in terms of cuisine from Italian to Szechuan to Indian. Which is why I was thrilled to find Blake Lane, the perfect healthy lunch spot that wasn’t Sweetgreen. Try the Poke or the Bibimbap. Anna, Brand Strategist

Last Sunday, we decided to drive out to Lookout Mountain to catch the sunset over the Rockies. It was beautiful— but as we took in the view, my stomach began to growl. I said— “Let’s get Thai!” When that cool air that swept through, that’s all I wanted— a hot bowl of Panang Curry at US Thai.  Jackie, Senior Account Manager
