NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 11, 2013) - With pumpkin infiltrating all aspects of fall cuisine, from the morning coffee to salads and soufflés, Seamless, a GrubHub Seamless brand, has identified the top pumpkin dishes spicing up the palates of New York City and Washington, D.C. diners in 2013. Although pumpkin pie remains a seasonal favorite, pumpkin soup and pumpkin curry top the list of popular dishes for these East Coast diners.

To uncover the top pumpkin picks for New York and D.C., analysts at Seamless reviewed all pumpkin dishes ordered by area diners since the beginning of 2013. Pumpkin soup has remained the most popular pumpkin dish in New York for the past two years, making up 19 percent of all pumpkin dishes ordered. Pumpkin curry, making up 15 percent of all orders, came in second, followed by pumpkin tempura rolls, bringing in 8 percent. In D.C., Pumpkin curry has reigned supreme as the most-ordered pumpkin dish two years in a row.

Seamless analysts also identified the seasonal lift in everyone's favorite pumpkin dessert, pumpkin pie, with more than 65 percent of all pumpkin pie orders being placed during the fall and early winter. In fact, the popular dessert moved up to the number three spot in 2012's list of most-ordered pumpkin dishes during those months.

"We are thrilled to unveil our diners' favorite pumpkin dishes, so busy diners can kick off the season with the rich, spicy and sometimes sweet flavor of pumpkin," said Ryan Scott, VP of Marketing, GrubHub Seamless.
