Heading along 95 from Long Bridgeport to Cape Cod and need a dining choice. These were recommend here:

gabrielle's in centerbrook
jeffrey's in milford
elizabeth's cafe, madison
le petit cafe, branford
bravo, bravo, mystic

Any tips or feedback since the poster did not elaborate at all, please? It would be for Sunday an early dinner in the Spring.

  1. le petite cafe would be my choice. one of the best rests. in Ct.
    Bentara in new haven for maybe the best malaysian food on the east coast. try hot and spicy whole fiish.
    Thali in new haven, great upscale fusion Indian, the crab appi is delish
    I've been hearing good things about Liv's oyster bar in old saybrook

      1. In Mystic Spice Rice Noodles, next to the train station is very good. Down Route 215 a mile in Noank is the Fisherman, with nice views and okay seafood., and half a mile up Marsh road you'll find the Seahorse, Where the Locals Eat.

        1. I second the Seahorse, one of my favorites. The fish and chips are amazing, and the raw oysters can be pretty good (and fresh!) as well.

            I third the Seahorse.
            We've never had a bad meal there and the previous poster is right;the fish and chips are truly amazing.
            A great friendly local crowd at the bar is really enjoyable as well---
