Homemade corned beef hash in New Haven/ Fairfield county?

Is there anyone that makes homemade corned beef hash in Fairfield or New Haven county? We got spoiled at the Wicked Oyster when we went to the cape, now the canned variety just won't do!

North of New Haven, if you're in the neighborhood, try O'Rourke's Diner in Middletown. One of my favorite (and least expensive) breakfasts there is Brian's corned beef hash and egg sandwich on a roll made right there on the premises. He also makes duck hash, red flannel hash, more hash than you can shake a stick at and IT IS ALL FAB!
Video about the diner (and some of the hash varieties) here:
BTW, I recall a recent discussion about how to make your own CB hash on the home cooking board, should you give up on trying to find real homemade hash out and feel like DIY at home:
Thanks, Katty for pointing the way to O'Rourke's. I had forgotten that they serve it. You're such a good kitty for providing the link to making it yourself.
Doing a search I found something closer: Equinox Diner in West Haven and Orange have corned beef hash:
76 Orange Ave
West Haven, CT 06516
285 Boston Post Rd
Orange, CT 06477-3520
In "Cordially Invited to Meet Death," Nero Wolfe is persuaded (the only time he was ever persuaded by a woman of anything about food, I think) that the best corned beef hash requires the addition of pork chitlins. The recipe is in the Nero Wolfe cookbook, but I admit I've never tried it.
They serve a very good homemade hash at The Sandwich Board in Hamden (at Skiff St/Whitney Ave).
Plus, the homefries are usually cooked nice and crispy the way I like them, and the homemade muffins are also good. I've never had a bad breakfast there.
