It’s pumpkin-picking time, which, for many, means the time of year to pick a pumpkin dish from a menu. In that spirit, here are four restaurants, each putting its own spin on the autumnal squash.

PREMIER DINER, 690 Commack Rd., Commack, 631-462-1432

This breakfast destination spot offers up pumpkin pancakes, which are light, plush and very much of the season. ($7.50)

LEMONGRASS THAI & CHINESE RESTAURANT, 2710 Long Beach Rd., Oceanside, 516-280-2277

A high comfort factor informs the colorful Panang curry with pumpkin at this bi-culinary spot. Add chicken, beef or vegetables, if you wish. ($11.75)

ARIANA RESTAURANT, 255 Main St., Huntington, 631-421-2933

At this Afghan-Mediterranean restaurant, you don’t have to be a vegan to appreciate aushak kadu, house-made ravioli filled with roasted pumpkin and served with marinara sauce. $19.95

VEGE FAVOR, 496 Main St., Islip, 631-650-7788

This counter-serve vegetarian Asian eatery serves up an ingeniously spiced pumpkin soup, both chunky and colorful. ($2.99 small; $3.49 large)
