As the fall chill starts to settle into the Big Apple, comfort-food cravings will only get stronger. Stay cozy with Japanese noodle soups from Ramen Mafia, Southern fare by S&M Soulfood or Klom Klorm's fragrant Thai curries. Latin American and Mexican flavors more up your alley? The namesake dishes at Arepas Grill and Sidewalk Tacos should do the trick.
Whether you need a quick snack or meal for a crowd, it won’t be hard to find a restaurant that fits your needs from this month’s new additions. For a light pick-me-up, order Sunny Blue's Japanese rice balls, a poke bowl from Pokiholic or Boba Ave Express' refreshing bubble teas. To feed a room full of starving friends and family, consider red-sauce classics from C & O Cucina or an array of sandwiches at Foodlab.
If you’re a believer that good things come in pairs, then it’s your lucky month. Joining the Windy City roster in October, aren’t one, but two Chinese restaurants—One Four One Five Restaurant and House of Hunan—both offering classic takeout and regional dishes. You’ll also see double in the category of Italian thanks to Volare—your destination for more elegant meals—and Fresco Pasta, for casual eats. Rounding out the list is newcomer Taste of Havana, specializing in Cuban cuisine.
