GREENWICH, Conn. -- As the season changes, a host of Greenwich eateries are serving up a number of new menu options.

Here's a sampling of some new spring offerings:

Bistro Versailles: Along with a new seasonal menu, the chefs at Bistro Versailles are all about special monthly dinners showcasing a variety of entrees and wines. To usher in spring, they are offering a $75 per person spring dinner March 31 at 7 p.m. complete with hors d'oeuvres, cocktail and special wine pairings. Expect items such as wild sorrel soup, gnocchi with morel mushrooms  and black sea bass with green pea sauce. Go here for the complete dinner menu. Spring Forward: 339 Greenwich Ave., 203-661-6634, .

L’escale : Say hello to asparagus, fava beans, English peas, morel mushrooms and Easter radishes, among other goodies. "Spring is actually the beginning of the year for chefs and avid cooks," said Executive Chef Frederic Kieffer. "This season is short-lived and most of the wild spring produce will only be available for a few weeks. Fiddlehead ferns, ramps, pea shoots, and the spring lamb will make their entrance on our menus. This is the season we trade the stew pot for a sauté pan, keeping it light and crunchy." Plus, L’escale's outdoor dining, lounge and bar come to life in mid-April with handcrafted fresh and frozen cocktails and lots of outdoor seating. Spring Forward: 500 Steamboat Road,  203-661-4600, .

Méli-Mélo: You can literally taste spring at Méli-Mélo, where items such as spring baby pea soup along with a detox salad, organic wheatgrass shots and fruit cocktails full of fresh fruit and coconut water are on the menu. There's also a "Sunlight Juice" of celery, spinach, parsley, lemon, ginger, and apple that brings in the sunshine even when it's not so bright outside. Spring Forward: 362 Greenwich Ave., 203-629-6153, .

Clay Café by Maison Privé: So this fitness center may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of food, but surprise surprise. You can eat here even if you're not a member, and there's a new sundeck, where you can dine alfresco. New to the menu: A build-your-own salad option along with a brown rice steamed bowl with various healthy protein choices. Spring Forward: 11 Riverdale Ave, Port Chester, N.Y., on the Greenwich border, 914-937-5000, .
