Dutchess County from Ward III in New York City

"We use as many seasonal and local ingredients as possible, so a good New York apple is perfect for the autumn. We chose the spices to mimic classic mulling spices, the Averna for warmth and a touch of bitterness, and the Dram to tie it all together with a little spicy sweetness."—Michael Neff, owner

Favorite late-night dishes in New York City: Chinese-style shrimp in crispy wrappers, Portuguese-style lamb meatballs filled with cheese, and bacalao fried rice at Macao Trading Co.
