New York’s Best Indian Summer Corn Dishes

cornYou might be surprised to see fresh corn still on menus, right besides pumpkin and butternut squash.  Because thanks to our Indian summer — unseasonably warm days that can often last until the first week or two of October — there’s no need to say adieu to the glorious, sun-sweetened ingredient just yet.  So here’s where to get your final tastes of corn at restaurants throughout the city, from Dirt Candy’s multi-component Corn Boil, to Dovetail’s Polenta with blackberries and kale.
