The pumpkins are carved, the lattes are pumpkin-spiced, and the pumpkin pies are topped with whipped cream. The round, ribbed orange squash is serving its seasonal duties.

However, Miami restaurants are pushing the envelope with pumpkin this season. Here are the ten best dishes to try, ranging from savory to sweet and from Haitian to Jamaican and from Vietnamese to Italian.

10. Pumpkin amaretto sorrentino at Mr. Pasta

Mr. Pasta specializes in one thing -- you guessed it: pasta. Owner Jorge Stekelorum offers a bunch of pasta strands and a punch of flavors between dough, but during the fall, there is nothing better than pumpkin and amaretto sorrentino. It's like ravioli but round. The filling is sweet and slightly nutty. Take them home, boil them, and pair them with a butter or cream sauce for extra decadence. It is homemade pasta without all the hassle.

9. Pumpkin soup at Tap Tap

Pumpkin soups make cameos across the city, but Tap Tap keeps it simple. There's no need for crème fraîche or other additions. The Haitian hotspot in South Beach serves a bowl of rich, root-vegetable-heavy soup ($6) all year long. It's beyond tasty -- with bits of potatoes, carrots, celery, and pumpkin.
