The kids are back in school and rainy season is in full swing down here in Florida, and we all know what that means… It’s pumpkin season! That’s right, Pumpkin Pancakes are BACK at First Watch nationwide, and we’re once again teaming up with No Kid Hungry to increase our year-round contributions by donating a portion of sales from this wildly popular Fall favorite throughout the month of September! But more on that in our next blog post.
This season, a few of our Fall staples from past years are back by popular demand (Did I mention Pumpkin Pancakes?), and we’ve got some new flavors that I think will blow your taste buds out of the water.
I feel like all of these dishes are my children, so I try not to play favorites (parenting 101), but… I’d be lying if I said our new Braised Short Rib Benedict wasn’t at the top of my list this season. It’s definitely not your grandma’s Eggs Benedict. That Parmesan-crusted ciabatta and tender red wine-braised beef short rib topped with the most flavorful ingredients and Parmesan cream – My mouth is watering already. I think I’ll have to make a video for you to share more about this dish on the blog, so stay tuned for that. Yeah, it’s that good!
Check out everything we’ll be serving on our Fall menu, available through November 3:
