Not Hackensack, but Park and Orchard is terrific. Enormous menu and fair selection for vegetarians. Plus good service and excellent wine list. Can get a bit noisy. Not super expensive. Definitely worth a try.
It’s just not fall without slicing into some homemade apple pie and sitting by the bonfire with a mug of hot apple cider. So many of our favorite fall treats get their deliciously sweet, crisp flavor from handpicked apples.
Summer is in full swing, which (hopefully) means trips to the park or the beach. If you’re taking a picnic along, you should know a few food safety rules so you can pack, transport, and eat your meal without the threat of food poisoning. Liz Weinandy
