Our September issue has arrived, and with it a whole new Menu section packed with new food trends, tips, and news. Ahead, a look at what to expect:

  • -CSA Guide: Sure, we all know about the wonderful summery produce to be had right now. Consult our guide to keep the local stuff coming all through fall.
  • -L’Espalier alum Alex Crabb dishes on his forthcoming Back Bay restaurant, Asta.
  • -Tatte Fine Cookies & Cakes is set to hit the big time thanks to a collaboration with Williams-Sonoma.
  • -Restaurant Review- Strip T’s: Corby Kummer heads to Watertown to try out local darling Strip T’s. The verdict: “The most unexpectedly dazzling food I’ve had in years.”
  • -First Bite: Brian Poe’s Tip Tap Room has killer apps (like fried goat cheese balls with carrot puree) and solid tips.
  • -First Sip: Emerald Lounge may win points with you if you’re out for a swanky evening, but skip this one for a casual post-work outing.
