Middletown CT Area/Dinners for 6

My family (4 adults, 2 teeens) will be traveling to Middletown this weekend and we're looking for good casual dinner spots for Friday, Saturday & Sunday nights. Italian, (Northern or Southern), French bistro (yeah roast chickens!) and whatever the New American/Eclectic/Upscale Comfort Food thing is called. Was that a sentence? Anyway, two other things to note - we will gladly drive 1/2 hour to 40 minutes for an incredible meal & price is not an issue.

PS: If there is a pastry/doughnut/ice cream place not to be missed please let me know. We are shameless consumers of sugar.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

  1. Tuscany Grill is always reliable, though a stroll down Main Street will yield some other good options. On the shameless consumption of sugar front, I'd be sure to make a trip to Lyman Orchards, less than 10 minutes from Middletown (in Middlefield). Great cider, 1st rate doughnuts, pies, all manner of baked things made on prem. It's perfect in the fall, to boot, and they have a corn maze for the kids, depending on how kid-like your kids are...
