Shelton, CT. area recs...
Chowhounds, please help me find good dining choices in the Shelton, CT. area...I often visit a family member who is a resident in a nursing home nearby...I know there are plenty of national chain operations there, but I was hoping for a few good independents too...all price ranges and cuisines are o.k...Thanks!
I shamelessly plug my user content map on Google Maps: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&h...
Crave is less than 10 minutes away, in Ansonia. The best place I know of in the area. There's Roseland Apizza, in Derby, It's not open for lunch.
Carmine's is fairly new to the area. Biagio's Osteria is supposed to be good.
Let me enthusiastically join Scargod in recommending Crave. Innovative Nuevo Latino menu in a "hip" setting admidst the pallor of downtown Ansonia. The first time I took my sons there, as we drove through Ansonia, they both asked, "just where are you taking us?" That being said, the food spoke for itself. It would definitely be a destination restaurant anywhere.
