The leaves are falling, temperatures are dropping and local restaurant and bar menus are changing.

One of our favorite things about fall is how local restaurants and bars utilize seasonal ingredients from nature’s bounty. These new delicious dishes include pumpkin, carrots, apples, pears and other in-season produce that will make you fall in love with the flavors.

Here are a few local restaurants that have rolled out new items for fall:
