In-N-Out-style burgers and Thanksgiving toast in Murray Hill
Swooping into the space formerly occupied by General Assembly (and before that, the Tiki spot Hurricane Club), Park Avenue Autumn is a reboot of the Midtown original that aims to change its theme and decor seasonally, with this fall's iteration rolling with nature stuff (foliage, branches), candles, and ropes slung to look like chandeliers.
The main dining room is pretty damn striking (and the bar's not half bad either).
The whole menu is going to change seasonally, but for now you can get your Oktoberfest-inspired fix of pork schnitzel, which comes with pear mostarda, anchovy brown butter, and radishes.
For lunch only, they've also got burgers inspired by In-N-Out's animal-style masterpieces (which the chef believes are some of the top burgers in the world) -- they come two to an order and use a brisket, chuck, short rib mix with American cheese and a trade secret sauce that's got a "little something" the In-N-Out version doesn't.
Leftover Thanksgiving, now available in one awesome dish thanks to PAA -- it's a turkey sage sausage on rye toast, topped with cranberries and all the other "fixin's".
If you, like most people, enjoy something being prepared table side for you, go with this venison tartare that gets mixed up with dried cherries, pistachios, shiitake mushrooms and sage, sea salt, and coffee oil before you stab it with toast.
Oh, and get this beautiful coriander-crusted branzino with coconut and ginger carrots that come in four colors. It's honestly fun to just look at. And eat. Definitely eat.
