I just got back today from traveling, unfortunately on a tough red eye after 12 hours of travel. Awoke ravenous after a nap and walked 2 blocks up to my new "local." Tried the celery root soup served with 3 different garnish types - sweet (apple), savory (parmesan croutons) and herbaceous (chive & parsley). A nice dish and I enjoyed mixing the flavors.
Dinner was a pork chop special that was just fantastic. A gamey-ish (not sure how else to describe it, besides really just obviously farm-raised) sort of chop with great, great flavor and topped with a thinly sliced fennel salad. This sat atop a pile of the most perfectly cooked and scrumptious cranberry beans, also lovely roasted cauliflower, and lightly cooked kale. A perfect Fall dish. Mind you, it's quite obvious that the dish is likely - and perhaps rather aggressively - mounted with loads of butter, but wow was this just what you think about when the temp. drops below 60 degrees and the fall bite is in the air.
