Halloween: trick or treat
Four hotspots promise spine-tingling meals and spooky cocktails for a ghoulishly good time.
With trick-or-treat trails for the little ones to follow and collect candy, and mini carved pumpkins to take home, Sunday Brunch is an affair even the children will enjoy. A special kid-friendly spread features bat wings (BBQ chicken), severed fingers (mozzarella sticks) and worm stew (spaghetti napolitana). The little ones will like the orange jello and Jack O Lantern cookies while adults can indulge in crème brulee and bread pudding for dessert after tucking into seafood and charcuterie platters.
