any thing decent to eat, want more organic and simple?
Whenever i'm out on the Post Road around a mealtime, which is quite often, I'm dumbfounded at all the chains and fast food joints. Where can I get a decent meal that doesn't come from a freezer?!? I usually end up at one of two places: Baja's or Shanghai Gourmet.
Also, whatever happened to the Whole Foods that was supposed to go into Milford Marketplace?
Whole Foods won't be going in there, at least not right away. I read in the paper that it's been put on hold, but now I can't find the article -- it was a couple weeks ago, maybe a month.
As for Orange, I'm no help -- I'd keep going to Milford to Bobette's. Not organic, but great soups, good sandwiches and nice people. Or the other way, to Claire's in New Haven.
If you like sushi, try Wild Ginger on the post road. Always attentive staff, clean and fresh...
For sushi, I'm a big fan of Friend House, which is in the strip mall next to Trader Joe's. I go there fairly frequently- my absolute fave roll is the Fuji Maki, which is a spicy tuna roll that is lightly tempura-battered and quick-fried (the entire roll), which is then sliced and scallop and tobiko are sprinkled over the top. Then the sushi chef runs a torch over it for a second or two, which gives it an amazing smoky flavor.
Highly recommended, either way. They always have interesting-sounding specials. I don't think they do much publicity, as whenever I go there's hardly ever anyone there.
Organic... you're probably SOL.
I also frequent the Thai House which is across the street from the Hayama (i think) steakhouse. I can also recommend Coromandel- their brunch is excellent.
