"Downtown" Kent, CT?
Yes, there are a few nice places in Kent. There is the Fife and Drum, which is dependable and very New England. There is Doc's, which recently moved from New Preston to Kent.
There is a new restaurant, which I have not been to, I am not sure of the name, I think it is called Blue...Something, but it is also supposed to be quite good. There is a Japanese Restaurant, which I have heard has recently gotten better called Wasabi. There is Kent
Coffee and Chocolate for pastries, as well as Belgique and there is Panini.
And for inexpensive food there is Caralees, so there are now choices in Kent
