Hope everyone’s having a foodtastic week so far.  If you’re in need of some food inspiration, here are some yummy ideas to whet your appetite.

It’s never too early to start thinking about Thanksgiving.  Bear just posted their special menu for this day, featuring a $45 3-course scrumptious prix-fixe.  12-14 31st Avenue, LIC.  917.396.4939 

Cider Week is still going on through Sunday.  To check it out in our neck of the woods, stop by at Alobar for their apple-centric menu and a cider pairing from Harvest Moon Cidery.  See menu.  46-42 Vernon Blvd, LIC.  718.752.6000

I’ll be brunching at MexiBBQ this weekend, and have of course already peeked at the menu.  It looks mighty scrumptious, so I wanted to share it with you here – ummm chilaquiles anyone? If you’d like to make your homemade version instead, try my recipe here.  37-11 30th Avenue, Astoria.  718.626.0333

Taking you out of Astoria and LIC for a bit, we just heart this review from our friends at Cityspoonful about a Nepali-Italian fusion restaurant called Woodside Cafe.  Although a bit more Nepalese than Italian, it’s totally worth the short trip on the 7.   Read the review.   64-23 Broadway, Woodside.  347.642.3445

Getting a bit chilly out there? Warm up with some comforting Slovak and Czech dishes at Koliba Restaurant.  Don’t miss their homemade dessert such as honey cake and strudel too!   31-11 23rd Avenue, Astoria.  718.626.0430

And just because we had to share the progress of BareBurger’s jingle contest, here’s one of their fun creative entries.  What do you think?
