Restaurants in south Florida that serve a great pumpkin soup aren’t in short supply so that’s why it’s so refreshing to find a restaurant with its own unique take on this classic dish. Jamaica Kitchen serves a chicken pumpkin soup every Monday that has all of the creaminess that you would expect from soup and all of the tastes of fall. This item is on the menu year round so you don’t have to wait until Thanksgiving to get your fall fix.
Fresco California Bistro
1744 S.W. 3rd Ave.
Miami, FL 33129
Fresco California Bistro doesn’t make ordinary pasta and that’s because it makes its own pasta. Fresco’s corn ravioli is a foodie’s favorite but the ravioli di zucca, also known as pumpkin ravioli, is a signature dish. It’s served in a mascarpone cheese sauce and the flavor is creamy and bursting with pumpkin flavor. The taste is so devine that you’ll never go back to the standard cheese ravioli again.

Michy’s is always at the top of south Florida ‘best of’ lists and there is a reason for that. Chef Michelle Bernstein pairs delightful and unexpected ingredients in each and every one of her recipes. For instance, her tasting menu sometimes includes squash blossoms filled with shrimp mousseline or you can also order her butternut squash risotto. Either way, you will get a gourmet meal that is incomparable to any place you’ve ever been.
