Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins at sundown tonight, and the celebration brings with it lots of traditional foods, most notably apples dipped in honey — symbolic of the hope for a sweet year. Some years, restaurants around town offer special dishes around Rosh Hashanah, particularly featuring apples and honey. The holiday snuck up rather early this year, though, so not much seems to be going on. But September makes people get excited about apples anyway, so let's talk about apple dishes and drinks (and some honey for good measure).

Leave a comment below, tweet at us, or hit up the tipline with interesting apple and/or honey dishes around town, either Rosh Hashanah specials or otherwise. We've listed a few to kick things off, and we'll update the list throughout the week. L'shanah tovah — have a good year!
