Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwich - Ancestry Brewing
Maybe it's just us, but a fall meal should feel like comfort and family time. So this will vary from person to person, but over here, chicken cordon bleu was a go-to family dinner and Ancestry Brewing has the perfect way to enjoy it for a meal out.
The Ancestry Brewing spin on the meal is taking it the handheld route and making it a fried chicken sandwich. Topped with the classic cordon bleu ham and swiss along with honey mustard and some crisp veggies make this an instant classic take on the recipe.
Also, as is clear by the name, Ancestry Brewing has an impressive list of beers to choose from. If you want a beer that’s going to reflect your fall feelings, the Irish Red with its hints of caramel and toast radiate that warm feeling.
P.S. We recommend upgrading to the sweet potato fries to really go all in on the seasonal vibes.

SRF Wagyu Top Sirloin Steak - Hayden’s Lakefront Grill
Last but certainly not least is a classic entree for any season, but tastes better when the nights are colder and the leaves start to fall.
Steak and potatoes are about as classic as they come when it comes to an iconic meal. At Hayden’s Lakefront Grill though, the classic is given new life.
This dish features American sourced wagyu beef, top sirloin to be exact. While wagyu is traditionally from a carefully bred line of Japanese cows, Snake River Farms (SRF) brings the quality of Japanese beef to the states. They actually had to adopt a classification system similar to the Japanese because their meats grade higher than the USDA tops off at which is prime.
This steak, which is cooked in Michelin-starred restaurants around the world, is paired with a sauteed mushroom medley, and mash of yukon gold potatoes, and a serving of vegetables that rotate seasonally. All of it adds up to a perfect fall-time meal.
