10 restaurants serving seasonal sweet corn this August.

Harvested at its peak in the late summer months, sweet corn is popping up at farmer’s markets and supermarkets, and some of our favorite chefs are making it a point to work the bright, yellow crowd pleaser into their light and refreshing summer dishes. Here are 10 ways to celebrate sweet corn season.   

LA LA Taqueria

150 Larchmont Ave, Larchmont; 914.834.2244
Sweet corn on the cob is the star of the show here, and it’s grilled and lathered in mayonnaise and cotija cheese and sprinkled with piquin chili powder. Fresh lime on the side makes for a zesty finish.

Sweet Grass Grill

24 Main St, Tarrytown; 914.631.0000
Sourcing from more than a dozen local farms, the menu is constantly evolving based on the seasons, and the summer paccheri is a warm-weather highlight. The dish features fresh, locally grown corn, tomatoes, garlic, basil, and grana Padano atop tender pasta. (Did we mention it can be made vegan?)

Inventively integrating traditional Mexican flavors with ravioli, this Camarones dish works at every level, making it a best-seller. Fresh shrimp and sea scallops are served over a bed of black bean and Monterrey jack cheese ravioli, topped with a sweet corn chipotle chardonnay sauce, and nestled in an edible potato basket. Need we say more?

Inn at Pound Ridge

258 Westchester Ave, Pound Ridge; 914.764.1400
Fresh, seasonal, farm-to-table cuisine is sourced from the Hudson Valley and New England, and the corn pudding is no exception. Jean-Georges’s seared Faroe Island salmon is served over a hearty bed of it that’s fashioned from shucked and shredded sweet yellow corn, cold butter, fresh lime juice, salt, and cayenne pepper. This summertime favorite has all of the elements of a classic Jean-Georges dish.

Bedford 234

635 Old Post Rd, Bedford; 914.234.5656
Chilled corn soup with pimento and cilantro is the ultimate summer dish: It’s light, refreshing, and colorful. You won’t find it on the menu, but you heard it from us, it’s a summer dinner special that can’t be passed up.

Wanna Empanada

Ossining; 914.226.9354
The corn celebration continues through September when this Web-based food service takes their street corn empanadas on the road in new, soon-to-be-rolling food trucks. Until then, fill up on these crispy, flaky pockets (made fresh daily and generously filled with corn and cheese) catering-style via Instagram, Facebook, and their website.
