A new location for a NewRo favorite, a burger bar in Larchmont, a donut cake kit from a local baker, and more spice up the month.

Smokehouse Tailgate Grill (587 North Ave, New Rochelle; 914.813.8686; shtailgate.com) has moved across the street to a new location almost three times the size of the original, with open-kitchen views, a private room with its own bar, custom smokers on display, and a bigger bar, which supports 20 draft lines. Expect the same menu: classic barbecue (e.g., smoked brisket, St. Louis ribs, smoked pulled-pork sandwich), barbecue tacos, and burgers.

The owners of Billy & Pete’s Social (billyandpetes.com) are behind Billy & Pete’s Burger Bar, scheduled to have opened mid-November (2118 Boston Post Rd, Larchmont) in the space once occupied by Carlyn’s Cove. Expect updated takes on classic cocktails, crisp salads, boozy milkshakes, mini-doughnuts, and of course numerous burger offerings.
