Thursday Sips & Nibbles

I am back again with a new edition of Thursday Sips & Nibbles, my regular column where I highlight some interesting, upcoming food & drink events.
1)  If you’re looking for every possible way to fit pumpkin into your diet this season, head to Kendall Square’s Sumiao Hunan Kitchen for pumpkin-laced recipes that will quench your autumn cravings. Sumiao has brought back a new rendition of their festive Sweet Pumpkin Cakes ($12) for the month of October. These little indulgences are filled with a rich, red bean paste and pan-fried until golden brown. It doesn’t end with October, though; Sumiao has two signature dishes that are here to stay all year long: Melted Gold Soup made with pumpkin and millet ($5) and a Stir-Fried Sweet Pumpkin dish made with garlic and fermented back soybean ($14).

Don’t forget: October 26 marks National Pumpkin Day…why not spend it at Sumiao?

Sweet Pumpkin Cakes are offered during normal operating hours throughout the month of October; Melted Gold Soup and Stir-Fried Sweet Pumpkin are offered during normal operating hours throughout the year.

2) Vialé restaurant in Cambridge is proud to announce the celebration of their 4-year anniversary in Central Square with dinner and drinks on Monday, October 15, from 5-10pm. Special beer and beer cocktails from Norwood's Castle Island Brewing Co. and fresh lobster specials from Scituate's Snappy Lobster will be available, alongside Vialé's full fall menu served à la carte.

In a joint statement from Vialé co-owners, Greg Reeves and Mark Young: "We're grateful to our families, current and former staff, neighbors, vendors, and friends for all of your support as we celebrate 4 years in Central Square. Special thanks to Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, Central Square Theater, The Dance Complex, Food For Free, Savenor's Cambridge, and Central Square Business Association. We're looking forward to being part of the ongoing revitalization of Central Square, and the Cambridge and Boston area restaurant communities for many years to come. We look forward to celebrating with everyone!!"
