Pumpkin Restaurant Review

: Here's a charming BYOB lighting up the street with the enthusiasm of its owners. The tiny dining room with makeshift décor works, as does the daily-changing menu offering dishes such as octopus with gigante beans and fennel, braised pork with collard greens and red grits, and skate with raisin chutney and Romanesco cauliflower. Dessert might be malted milk pot de crème or goat's milk cheesecake with poached figs, orange sorbet and walnuts. A $45 five-course Sunday dinner crafted with locally sourced products is a steal.
