This weekend, I escaped the hustle and bustle of the city with a trip to Virginia wineries just off 66. It was beautifully sunny and a perfect day to see the changing fall foliage.
Also changing this season is the menu at Graffiato. Although I was sad to see the sweet corn agnolotti go, I am happy to see the infusion of pumpkin into the risotto and caramel accompanying the zeppoles. The pork belly might be my favorite new addition, and the new roasted potato gnocchi with wild mushrooms and truffle is a delicious indulgence. Top Chef fans, never fear–the pepperoni sauce has survived the menu change.
