Looking for New Haven Restaurant
I'm spending the night in New Haven on Thursday (3/11) and looking for a restuarant. New Haven has so much to offer that I don't know where to start. I am (obviously) from Ledyard, and my preference are Olio (Groton), Bravo Bravo or Azu (Mystic), Dog Watch Cafe (Stonington), River Tavern (Chester)....any suggestions?
It sounds like you enjoy Italian food. Assuming you don't want pizza, I suggest L'Orcio on State Street: http://www.lorcio.com. It's very good food and a lovely atmosphere that's in the city but maybe more laid back than some places.
If you want fancier, white-tablecloth dining in the Little Italy neighborhood of Wooster St., I recommend Consiglio's, http://www.consiglios.com.
Skappo or Basta Tratorria are small and a little different from the rest. I concur with them or l'Orcio.
While I don't know Consiglio's (what's the matter with me?), Tre Scalini is my go-to white tablecloth place on Wooster Street.
