Oktoberfest Menu Rollout

Owner and Vienna-educated chef Michael Person promises authentic Austrian/German food and drink for his traditional Oktoberfest lunch and four-course dinner menu at the Ship Inn. Running through mid-October, the culinary celebration hits all the right marks, with bratwurst, sauerbraten, wiener schnitzel and apple strudel. German beer and wines are also available.

Now Open for Dinner

Hidden gem Occasionally Yours is offering a new dining experience Thursday-Saturday at its Swarthmore location. From 4:30 to 9:30 p.m., chef Nathan Moore transforms what was once a breakfast-and-lunch-only café into an elevated BYOB experience he calls “Indulge.” The dinner menu is locally procured and changes seasonally to reflect fall flavors. Currently wowing diners: the baked brie bites, smoked trout pâté, lamb tomahawks and carrot-and-cremini ossobuco. Reservations preferred.

10 Park Ave., Swarthmore, (610) 241-5821
