      Thanks for your interest. A.: Fast & easy,any cuisine OK

    2. There's Pepe's Pizza in Manchester right off of 84, Rein's New York Style Deli in Vernon right off of 84. Both are north of Hartford. finding a place off of 90 is a little tricky due to the lack of exits on the Mass Pike. There the Public House in Sturbridge off of 84 just before you get onto 90. Public House is American fare. All are very good. All are casual settings. You should not have to spend more then 45 min. to an hour for lunch at all 3. I hope you enjoy your trip.

          There are a wide variety of places along Rte. 20 in Sturbridge, right off 84. Take 20 west. Whistling Swan, Enrico's pizza (HOT wood fired oven), Kaizen Japanese / sushi, BT's Smokehouse, Picadilly Pub, Oxhead Tavern. I can vouch for Enrico's and Kaizen, haven't been to the others in a while.

            Kaizen, Enrico's and BT's are the best of that bunch. I'd add the fairly new Cedar St. Grille. It's awesome.

            Swan, Pic and Oxhead are underwhelming.

              I concur on Cedar St. In its new casual incarnation. Forgot they are open for lunch much of the week. We had a fine lunch there in June. Duh.

      1. Traveller Food and Book is a place I stop by on occaision for the open-faced turkey sandwich. And you get a free (used) book with every meal. In Union, CT - Exit 74 off I-84. Review here -

          I second Traveler. The turkey is good and the place is unique.

            Pretty good diner-type food with really good rice pudding.

        2. White Hut in Springfield off of I-91, over the Memorial bridge. Great "greasy" burgers.
