    Connecticut a pretty big place, what area, town or city are you looking to brunch in?

      I think Dakota in Avon has a brunch. Some of their other locations do and they are very good (around $17 if I remember)

        If you are near NH, 500 Blake may work.

          500 Blake Street is no more - it closed last year. Scoozzi is open for Sunday brunch, if you like Italian (and you're in New Haven).

            Blake Street closed??? Must have missed that one. When? We used it for professional organization meetings and found it to be excellent. Very sorry to hear this. Jay

              Yes, it's true. It closed late in 2006, I think.

          I attended a family brunch for 25 at Adams Mill in Manchester. They have a private room available and I thought it was pretty good and hit all of the right brunch notes: Omlets to order, fresh waffles, carving station, mimosa's, etc. For comparison purposes, I found it to be superior to the Red Barn, a place I hit a couple months ago.

            Splash at Longshore in Westport has a nice brunch.

              Water's Edge in Westbrook has an elegant Sunday brunch, but it is a bit higher priced than most others. Several years ago we had a good brunch at Saybrook Point Inn in Old Saybrook. Their brunch menu may be found at http://www.saybrook.com/elegant_brunc....

                What about the Sunday brunch at the Italian restaurant in New Haven--Skappo?
