Best "must go to" Restaurant in CT (but not fairfield county)

  • 7

Wandering what the absolute must go to restaurant is in Connecticut excluding fairfield county. Want to take my in-laws for a wonderful meal on Mother's Day but Fairfield is a little too far. They love the Max restaurants in Hartford area but I was thinking of someplace with a nice scnenic drive. Any thoughts?

  1. The Copper Beech Inn, Ivoryton, CT. Very nice. You can even add a stop at Gillette Castle overlooking the CT river.

    1. I second Copper Beech (Pip's) and also nominate Still River Cafe in Eastford.

          1. re: acervoni

            nice...

            next time i visit the family in CT again ...i will have to stop by again

          2. J.Gilberts in Glastonbury is my favorite. The bone in rib eye is always perfect and the lump crab-cake app is ridiculously good. Great wine selection as well.
