Fall is officially here, and with it plenty of ways to celebrate the equinox: rooftop dinners, steak feasts, seasonal beer, and more. Read on for this week’s best bets!
Five Borough Local Dinner
Chef Kat Randazzo cooks up an uber-local chef’s table dinner at The Brooklyn Kitchen, sourcing everything from the city’s five boroughs, including some foraged ingredients. Reserve a spot here.

Home on the Grange
Brooklyn Grange toasts to another fruitful season of urban farming with a soiree on its rooftop plot. The farm-driven menu spotlights the Grange’s own produce, alongside charcuterie from Brooklyn Cured and beverages from Troegs and Empire Brewing. A portion of proceeds support City Growers, the Grange’s non-profit organization dedicated to hands-on farm education. Read more about the festival and get tickets.

Calling all carnivores: The Bell House is about to test the limits of your meat-tooth with this all-you-can-eat (and drink) affair. A resurrection of an old New York tradition, the feast features mountains of Pat LaFrieda steak and bottomless pitchers of McSorley’s light and dark ales. True to custom, there won’t be a utensil in sight, but everyone gets a souvenir apron before digging in. Get more details and tickets here.
