  1. There are some really nice restaurants in the middletown area, I am posting a few sites for you to look over. ( ( ( This should give you a good start. Good luck and I hope you have a good meal. Earle Ct.

    1. Mikado (just behind Main St.) recently remodeled and will make you think you're in Manhattan rather than Middletown. Their sushi is excellent. As long as it isn't crazy busy (in which case it can be loud), it's a very nice setting. I second the Luce recommendation below. Fiore II is also tasty for Italian food. You will find yourself asking for more garlic knots. Yum! Enjoy your meal in my hometown! :)

        I second Mikado, I was a regular for sushi takeout when I lived down that way.

          Just found this post and wanted to second the Fiore ll suggestion. Excellent veal dishes.
          We have not found a better restaurant serving veal in a multitude of preparations ..even in the Hartford area! And they have expanded and renovated providing lots of additional seating and nearly eliminating the long lines that were the norm on a friday or saturday night!

        2. Luce. Search for my review and others.

          1. Four of us went to Forbidden City for lunch a couple of weeks ago and were delighted. Food very good, and ambiance and service terrific.

            1. I second Fiore's on Main Street. They offer very good Italian food in a relaxed yet somewhat elegent setting. Great value, also. They don't accept resevations, though.

              Tuscany Grill usually comes through with a good meal, but has more of a pub-ish atmosphere.
