dog friendly in new haven?
There always seems to be a dog or two hanging out (with owners) at Rudy's on Elm St. I don't know if it's policy or not, but they at least tolerate dogs at the outdoor tables. No idea if the same goes for inside, though I doubt it. Regardless, it's summer and a good time to eat on the sidewalk. Plus, Rudy's has great, great frites and good, if pricey, hamburgers.
This isn't a restaurant, really, but if you let your dog eat ice cream, Ashley's lets you bring your dog in and will give your dog a scoop of sweet cream. My dog loves it. Also, Wentworth's up in Cheshire makes K-9 Crunch for dogs, which is sweet cream with dog biscuits in it.
