An Egg Bagel Sandwich

Craving an egg bagel, but not a trip to New York City? You’re in luck. Mike & Patty’s now has a golden bacon-egg-and-cheese on the menu every day, made with an exclusive egg bagel from Better Bagels. The Triple Gold Bodega BEC has two fried eggs, bacon, and yellow cheddar sandwiched between the soft, slightly sweet bagel. The Mike & Patty’s team specifically requested the eggy delight for their menu, but worry not—when Better Bagels opens its long-awaited deli in the Seaport (soon!), egg bagels will be on the menu, says cofounder Sam Harden.

National Frappe Day? Sure! Celebrate at Gre.Co, which is serving up complimentary creamy coffees all day on Saturday, October 7.

Concord Grapes

This famous fruit originated right here in Massachusetts, and it’s in season right now. Pick up a pint at City Feed and Supply, find it with creamy vacherin at Deuxave, or feast your eyes—and your appetite—on Cultivar pastry chef Robert Gonzalez’s perfect purple panna cotta, pictured above. The brand new Eventide Fenway will serve house-made Concord grape soda when it opens this weekend, too.

A Liquid Halloween Party

This New England tiki drink by Joseph Choiniere of Forage, cleverly called the Yān Ki Mai Tai, is made with toasted squash-infused bourbon, GrandTen Distilling’s local Rare Bird overproof rum, black walnut orgeat, and cider vin.

5 Craigie Circle, Cambridge, 617-576-5444, foragecambridge.com.

Pabu Ramen

Pabu Boston’s Ramen Bar pop-up—inspired by Michael Mina’s lively San Francisco restaurant—begins this Sunday. Throughout the fall, the downtown hotspot transforms into the Ramen Bar with loud hip hop, buckets of beer, mix-and-match boilermakers, and a fun menu centered on build-your-own bowls of ramen. Check it out below.

Sundays, October 8-November, 5-9 p.m., Pabu, 3 Franklin St., Boston, 857-327-7228, michaelmina.net.
