October was full of treats--and a few tricks--offering us several new 
restaurants and exciting finds throughout the region. Here are some 
favorite flavors from the month: ? The Pure Pasty Co. 
http://tastingtable.com/entry_detail/dc/2248/Pure_Pasty_Co_s_meat_pies_have_the_right_stuff.htm 
brings a bit of England to Vienna with hearty meat pies. The handheld 
snacks are filled with combinations like the Indian-spiced chicken masala 
and steak with provolone cheese. ? Good bartenders advise using your last 
summer herbs in fresh cocktails 
http://tastingtable.com/entry_detail/dc/2211/Look_to_your_window_box_for_cocktail_inspiration.htm 
. Area restaurants are shaking drinks made with basil, rosemary, thyme and 
chive blossoms, but the herb-infused concoctions seem even better when you 
mix them yourself. ? Soul (and Creole) food becomes Seoul food at 
Sterling's Mokomandy 
http://tastingtable.com/entry_detail/dc/2206/Get_the_best_of_Cajun_and_Korean_flavors_at_Mokomandy.htm 
. This sleek fusion destination offers classic Korean dishes alongside 
gumbo, ?touff?e and fried chicken. The equally creative cocktail menu 
utilizes seasonal ingredients like apple-cider molasses and heirloom 
pumpkin. ? With their diet of acorns, chestnuts and berries, the pigs at 
Babes in the Wood 
http://tastingtable.com/entry_detail/dc/2253/Go_nuts_over_wild-roaming_acorn-fed_hogs.htm 
are autumn's best foragers. At Arlington's Westover Market, butcher Bruce 
Saunders offers chops and other cuts of their lean, nutty meat. ? You don't 
have to go to Argentina to get good Malbec. Several Virginia wineries 
http://tastingtable.com/entry_detail/dc/2231/Virginias_Malbecs_are_a_local_taste_of_Argentina.htm 
are going gaucho with the bold, berry-rich varietal, which goes 
exceptionally well with steaks and rich stews.
