Good seafood in CT not along shoreline
Having someone visit who has requested having lunch at an "authentic New England seafood restaurant." Problem is we're near Danbury, not the shore. Our guest wants a place with a raw bar, lobster rolls (of grilled roll and butter not mayo variety), and fried seafood. I used to go to Frank's Simply Seafood in Bethel, but it is no longer around. Any suggestions?
Denmo's in Southbury fits the Lobster Roll & fried Seafood request (no raw bar - more of a roadside stand). It's up 84 (I'm thinking exit 15 - I usually go back roads to hit the Dog Park first). I wrote a review of it here:
Denmo's Famous Original Drive
340 Main St S, Southbury, CT 06488
I'm not from that area, but CT isn't that big, why not just go to the shore? Rt. 7 will take you to Norwalk and Rt. 1, there has to be all kinds of places in that area. I'm from West Hartford originally, and we used to drive to Old Saybrook area all the time for seafood. It was a nice drive and a fun thing to do
