Where to dine tonight if you’re not dressing up

Halloween haters this is where you’re eating

Tigertail and Mary

Tapped out of Halloween? If the answer is yes then we have your Halloween plans figured out and they don’t require costumes. It’s just you and your pals dressed in your stretchiest jeans or something loose to feast away.

We looked through the websites, Facebook, Instagram, and Instagram stories, even texted with some of the owners of these restaurants to find those dining destinations that don’t require a Freddy Kreuger mask. The most you will find is candy at the host stand and a pumpkin agnolotti dish…we’ll allow it.

Take your pick!

4. Boia De

Try the Potato Skins with stracciatella, caviar, hard egg, the Baked Clams with nduja and lemon, and the Pappardelle Alla Lepre with rabbit, rosemary, tomato. We love the menu here. It’s concise, simple and you can tell that a lot of thought went into. We’d honestly go blindfolded and just point at any of the dishes.

Oh and do miss out on the Chicken Entrée with anchovy, parmesan, red oak lettuce. Yes, we mean it, the chicken.
