MENU: Perfect Halloween Food

Looking for inspiration for a Halloween dinner?

We love the menu at Blu restaurant in New York City’s Hotel Indigo. It’s not for the faint of heart (and there’s no heart on the menu):

  • Sautéed Chicken Livers with Artichokes and Lemon
  • Traditional Pinocchio Tripe with Crostini
  • Tempura-Style Calf Brain* with Marinara Dipping Sauce and Prickly Pear Salad
  • Black Risotto with Frogs Legs
  • Blood Orange Sorbet with Black Cat Cookies and Prosecco Zabaione


“In the spirit of Halloween, I wanted to get creative and playfully pair and plate items that diners might not ordinarily consider—but which are quite delicious,” says Chef Patrick Nuti. “All these items are perfectly normal in Italy and most other cultures but can seem foreign to American palates.”

We love culinary adventure, and we’re headed to Blu for Halloween. Maybe we’ll run into the Munsters or the Addams family.

*THE NIBBLE’s wine editor prefers lamb’s brains.
