NC Apples Create a Locally Grown Farm Fresh Menu in Midtown Raleigh

Monday, October 13th, 2014

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photos-apple-harvest-image21611353October is National Apple Month across the U.S.A. and autumn is always a fun time for cider mills, N.C. apple picking, apple tours, corn mazes and hayrides down the orchard farm trails. At Mia Francesca Trattoria, we offer a variety of delectable dishes that include our North Carolina apple or feature its apple flavors. Whether dining with us for brunch, lunch, dinner, or even Halloween weekend; we are the finest Northern Italian restaurant in the Triangle. Mia Francesca is centrally located at North Hills in Midtown Raleigh alongside the Renaissance Raleigh North Hills by Marriott and we are near boutiques, movie theaters, quaint shops and an array of local retail environments to walk to and enjoy.

From our weekend brunch menu, we offer Breakfast Americana: two eggs (any style), applewood smoked bacon, Italian sausage, house-fried potatoes, ciabatta toast, and fresh fruit. Our brunch menu is always available from 10 a.mm until 3 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday.

When visiting for lunch while shopping or during your work day, stop in and enjoy our seasonal Autumn Salad with fresh sliced apples, pears, gorgonzola, candied walnuts and mixed greens; everything is flavored with our delicious apple cider vinaigrette. Keeping with the October apple theme during dinner, try our absolutely incredible Costoletta di Maiale, which features a cider glazed pork chop, sweet potato puree, Brussels sprouts, pancetta, and caramelized onions with fresh apple juices.

Now, what dessert does Mia Francesca Trattoria recommend tasting during National Apple Month? None other than our Apple Crostata with locally grown Granny Smith apples buried in a flaky pastry crust that is always served warm with tasty vanilla gelato, caramel, and vanilla crème anglaise.

Remember to find the opportunity to delight in our fine wine selection. In honor of National Apple Month, feel free to select one of our superb red or white wines. Cabernet Sauvignon is the king of our red wines and Chardonnay is the most popular of our white wines.

Lastly, it is soon the time for the holiday season and the holidays are about spending time with loved ones. Let our Iron Chef Zack and his team of kitchen professionals does all the work. When you celebrate Thanksgiving Day with us (from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday November 27th), have a slice of our savory Apple Pie.

Any time is the right time to dine at Mia Francesca Trattoria!
