NYC Restaurants are diving into peach season…

Fan Fan Doughnuts is bringing back its sugar doughnuts filled with housemade caramelized peach jam.

Veselka is offering a new summer peach salad with dried cherries.

Chambers has a Peach & Pluot Clafoutis on the menu served with almond ice cream and peach compote.

Other bites worth seeking out…

Rosella is bringing back its Summer Sashimi with arctic char, fresh tomatoes, pickled jalapenos, shallots and ponzu.

Potato Gnocchi in a briny lobster sauce is available at Vestry topped with a light-as-air parmesan foam.

New to the menu at Le Crocodile in Brooklyn is Agnolotti with chanterelles and favas. The dish uses mushroom stems and scraps from the Burgundy braise for its duck in a bid to cut down on waste.

Cocktails worth seeking out…

The Ruby Red Spritz at Loreto with London Dry Gin, prosecco, grapefruit soda and grapefruit bitters.

Naro is offering a new cocktail from its sister restaurant, Atomix, called Sesame Symphony with Sesame-Washed Lapostolle, pisco, Nimome tangerine yakju, Eldorado 12, Rhum J.M. and fino sherry.

Looking ahead…
