Wassail and ACME Fall Cider Dinner, ACME, 9 Great Jones Street, Monday

Start Cider Week a little early by taking part in a five-course collaborative seasonal dinner courtesy of Wassail's Joe Buenconsejo and ACME's Mads Refslund. The chefs are combining their fondness for fish and vegetables with a menu that includes parsley root with fluke tartare, sunchokes with Spanish mackerel, and a special chocolate dessert with beet sorbet. Dinners are $65 per person and reservations can be made by contacting ACME. Wine and cider parings (guest can choose either category or a combination to get the best of both worlds) are available for an additional $45, while a special Cider Week fall cocktail will also be available as an alternative option.

Virginia and Babu Ji Dinner, Virginia's, 647 E 11 Street, Tuesday, 7 and 9 p.m. seatings

Virginia's is celebrating its six month anniversary by hosting a guest chef dinner with fellow Alphabet City new kid on the block Babu Ji. The five-course, family-style dinner from chefs Christian Ramos and Jessi Singh focuses on seasonal, off-menu items along with modern Indian dishes like scallop coconut curry and house-made cardamom, honey and pistachio frozen dessert. Seatings take place at 7 and 9 p.m; score a reservation - $50 per person - by contacting the restaurant.

Dining Without Flynn, Joe and Misses Doe, 45 East First Street, Wednesday, 8 p.m.

Chef Joe Dobias is offering those with a flare for culinary humor a chance to not take themselves too seriously with a 14-course, one night only dinner. For $60 (tax and tip included), guests can enjoy dishes like "green goddess with a shit ton of caviar"," last of the autumn squash", "first of the winter squash," and several dishes that make good use of "embers." There's also a nine pour wine pairing for $15 per person. Those interested in making a coveted reservation can email Jill@JoeandMissesDoe.

Food Book Party — Lawless: Breaking Rules and Taking Names, Berg'n, 899 Bergen Street, Brooklyn, Thursday, 6:30 p.m.

Need a new book to read by the fireplace? Do or Dine founder and foie gras donut aficionado Justin Warner, along with winemaker Andre Mack, will demonstrate recipes from his new cookbook. The duo will provide a few snacks and paired wines to mark the occasion, with Warner signing copies of his book afterwards. Tickets are $10; score them here.

David Santos November Hot Chicken Pop-Up, Bark Hot Dogs, 155 Bleecker Street, Friday, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

If you missed out on David Santos' Nashville style pop-up a few weeks ago, the former Louro chef is returning for a November follow up. The chef will offer his version of the city's classic hot chicken sandwich for $8 as well as a limited number of whole hot chicken dinners complete with sides. Sandwiches are available on a first come, first served basis, while dinner packages can be reserved in advance here.
