Marvin Greets Fall with Enthusiasm

Autumn is here with pumpkin, butternut squash, and apples being featured as the stars of most menus around the city. Yet, a variety of choices and delivery of execution are just as important. Executive Chef Angel Franco replicates classics such as the Fried Chicken and Waffles, but steps up to showcase his talent with dishes such as the Blackened Scallops with Kale and each one of the three desserts on the menu. Girl Meets Food loves to step out of the box often, but sometimes we truly love the seduction of comfort food. However, we suggest that each person in your party get their own dessert as utensils will come into contact with one another often if you decide to share. Here are our top five picks:

Potato Croquettes

Potato Croquettes with Roasted Garlic Sour Cream

Blackened Scallops

Blackened Scallops with Crispy Kale

Toffee Cake

Toffee Cake with Salted Caramel Ice Cream

Apple Walnut Cake

Apple Walnut Cake with Apple Compote Vanilla Ice Cream

Pumpkin Creme Caramel
