The most delicious cider drinks and dishes in NYC this fall

The most delicious cider drinks and dishes in NYC this fall
Cider at Wassail

Enjoying apples in the fall doesn’t have to be #basic. For proof, try one of these unique takes on the iconic fall treat.

Hard craft ciders
For a city packed with practically everything, Gotham is surprisingly scarce on cider bars. Wassail (162 Orchard St; 646-918-6835, is one of the few applecentric dens, serving more than 90 varieties. Set to join those fruity ranks in October is Brooklyn Cider House (1100 Flushing Ave, Brooklyn;, a Bushwick spot complete with an in-house cidery and bar.

Tipples that put the Appletini to shame
For a more refined cider experience, head to Perrine (The Pierre, 2 E 61st St; 212-940-8195, to sip on Them Apples ($18), a cocktail with sparkling cider, Cointreau and apple brandy. Then hitch a ride downtown to aRoqa (206 Ninth Ave; 646-678-5471, and order the Cider House Rules ($14), a triple threat of hard cider, applejack and apple brandy.

Sweet meats
Take advantage of the classic sweet-and-savory pairing of pigs and apples at Clancey (79 Clinton St; 917-388-3575, by ordering its Tomahawk pork chop brined in Downeast cider ($22) or at Westville (various locations;, which doles out a cider-marinated ham sandwich alongside a cucumber salad dressed in house-made apple cider vinaigrette ($13).

Cops’ choice
For a tried-and-true apple cider doughnut ($2.25), stop by Carpe Donut (various locations; 917-509-5119,, a roving food truck known for its all-natural treats, or sink your fork into the heartier doughnut tower ($12) at Tavern62 (135 E 62nd St; 212-988-9021,, David Burke’s upscale gastropub boasting stacked glazed apple cider doughnuts.
