The magazine recommends The Fromage, with gooey Brie, charred bacon and a garnish of fresh pesto that “adds an elegant, herbal balance.”

“Mud House chef Tara Lansangan estimates that she’s come up with at least 50 iterations of Dat Hash since spring 2013,” Travel + Leisure stated.

For the fall, the magazine recommends the fall hash that comes with sweet taters, Brussels sprouts, garlic and preserved lemon, which is served on whole grain toast with poached eggs.
