With the fall season in full swing, cuisine options tend to open up to the rich and hearty type which keeps us warm in the chilly weather.  Gone are the days of 90 degree weather and light salads to enjoy (you still can do the latter), but when it comes to the crisp fall season, the heartier the better.  Mastro’s Steakhouse in Manhattan, one of our favorite steakhouses in NYC, is providing some great fall comfort foods to enjoy this season.
