This year’s restaurant openings may feel like they’re slowing down, especially now that we’ve all been lulled into an Indian Summer calm.

Allow us to give you a jump on them — plus, we’ve thrown in a few fall-appropriate things from old favorite places and newly open spots as well.

When you’re done here, check out what everyone’s looking forward to in Boston, Chicago, L.A., New York, and Philadelphia, too.
