South Eastern Connecticut?? [moved from Tristate board]

Shouldn't the subtitle of of this board list "southwestern connecticut" instead of "southeastern"?

Southeastern CT belongs on the New England board.

  1. Yes, absolutely. It's a chow error.

    1. I'm new here and a bit confused...what parts of CT are considered part of the "tristate region" as delineated by this board...I don't see many postings for Norwalk, Westport, Fairfield restaurants...are they fair game here? Thanks!

        kbfood, yes. I'm in Westchester and but from what I see it's it's definitely all of Fairfield County. Not sure about east of that but likely western part of New Haven county and maybe Litchfield. The rest is for the New England Board I believe.

        You are in the right place though.

      2. I can post freely about all those restaurants I want to hear everyone's thoughts on...more to come!

        1. FFD county normally included in TriState as first choice and New England as a larger board.


          1. I think the entire state of Connecticut should be on the tristate board that way we wouldn't have this problem. It would make searching and posting easier.

            What do you guys think???

              Personally, I think tri-state board should be limited to areas commutable to NYC but that's just me. Personally, Western CT is relevant for me, Eastern CT is not. When I am traveling to Eastern CT I search the New England Board.

                I agree.

                I've always understood "tri-state area" as the greater NY metropolitan area- northern NJ, western LI, Westchester County, and Fairfield County.
