Get a taste of fall in Kent

It’s fall, and that means crisp days and seasonal selections on the menu. As we settle into sweater weather, check out the tastes of fall in Kent, Washington.

The grill is covered until next summer, and dining al fresco is a fond memory. As the season changes, so do restaurant menus. Think apples, cinnamon, pumpkin, butternut squash and smoky meats. From savory to sweet, here are just a few places to bite into some delicious autumn fare in Kent.

  • Enjoy a cozy afternoon/evening by the fire at Reds Wine and Craft Beers at Kent Station. Get your fall fix with honey-glazed roasted squash with polenta, candied pecans and gorgonzola; potato gnocchi with roasted squash, goat cheese and Parmesan; or a wine-poached pear salad. Reds has the perfect seasonal brew or Washington wine to pair with your fall feast.
  • Macrina Bakery and Cafe has been a fixture in the Seattle area since 1993, and was named one of the best bread bakeries in America by Bon Appétit Magazine. Stop by Macrina’s Kent location to get a taste of the café’s seasonal offerings, including pumpkin and mascarpone ravioli with walnut-pecorino sauce, and pumpkin and roasted kale quiche.
  • M Bakery & Deli specializes in European-Fusion sweet and savory pastries and sandwiches. Want a taste of Europe and fall all rolled into one delicious handful? Try the fresh-baked applewood-smoked ham and provolone cheese Piroshki.
  • Paolo’s Italian Restaurant has been making delizioso Italian food in Kent for 27 years. Take the fall chill off with a bowl of classic corn chowder. Or go all in and order the pumpkin ravioli with walnut cream sauce and dried cranberries. Be sure to check the website for menu updates and specials.
  • Nothing says fall like fresh-baked apple pie. Kent’s Pie Lab Bakery has some of the best you’ll ever taste. Go for a traditional recipe, or try a pie loaded with apples soaked in Fireball whiskey, bite into a salted caramel apple pie, or opt for maple, bacon and apple—because everything is better with bacon. Check in daily to find out what other sweet and savory selections Pie Lab is cooking up.
