Apparently the colder weather has local chefs thinking about warm, comforting treats. Few sweets fit that description better than s'mores— the classic campfire combination of toasted marshmallows and gooey melted chocolate sandwiched between two graham crackers.

Newcomer Convivial currently has a s'mores-inspired dessert on the menu, and Bourbon Steak just introduced a new one, too. There are also s'mores cocktails, empanadas, and even a burrito right now.

Check out this list of new desserts, along with a few old favorites.
