Kent / Washington / New Milford, CT good eats?

Any recommendations for places to go in this area for some good grub -- from a casual coffee or lunch to a great dinner?

  1. We occasionally take a ride over from Columbia County, New York and have lunch at the West Street Grill in Litchfield. It is always enjoyable.

    1. My wife and I have been to the Cookhouse in New Milford. Excellent smoked ribs. They won awards for the best smoked ribs in CT 3 years in a row. You choose Your Rib Cooking Style:
      1) Fat Tommy Style: These are sauced and fall-off-the-bone-tender.
      2) Memphis Style: This is the way Miss Darlene and the experts like their ribs. They are unsauced and toother, easily pull apart. Add sauce if you wish. Great atmosphere.

      2. has anyone been to moosilauke (in kent) in 2008?

        1. A very good place is Lucia on Bank Street in New Milford. Absolutely delicious Italian food, not your typically red-sauce variety.

            Second this. Try the calamari. But Cookhouse is way overrated IMO.
