These pumpkin-spice dishes and drinks carved into menus across the city are not your typical Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks. Try ice cream sandwiches stuffed between pumpkin-cake layers or spiced martinis named after actual ghosts to get pumpkin-ing this fall.
Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream Cake Sandwich at Sherry B Dessert Studio
For a dessert that will give you all the chills, treat yourself to a scoop of homemade pumpkin-spice ice cream sandwiched between two layers of pumpkin cake. West Village (sherryb.com). $8.
The Suitor Séance Martini at Delmonico’s
This cocktail is inspired by the scariest thing of all: being single in NYC. Dedicated to a pair of phantom spinster sisters, this martini is sweetened with vanilla vodka, pumpkin cordial and star anise. Financial District (delmonicos.com). $16.
Pumpkin Spice Frozen Latte at Refinery Rooftop

Pumpkin Spice soft-serve at Oddfellows Ice Cream Co.
This scoop-shop darling is churning out a creamy, pumpkin-spice soft-serve made with pumpkin puree and five-spice powder. Williamsburg (oddfellowsnyc.com). $5.
