NYT piece on CT's Quiet Coast is frustrating.

This irks me. Why? Because it just has the screamingly obvious places. And R.J. Julia's, really?

I would think we could do better. What places along our shoreline would the Chowhounders suggest?

      1. I grew up in a coastal Connecticut town that did (and does) get overrun with tourists in the summer; so I find this type of article handy for knowing which places to avoid. As for the Chowhound angle - and I may be wrong in thinking about it this way - I often view CH as the place to come to find good/great food that *doesn't* get attention from the larger media outlets.

          1. This board has traditionally been full of recommendations of the right sort — seems the NYT's food writers don't read CH, though. One simple suggestion concerns the roads: she mentions 136 and 156, but omits the officially scenic 146, which goes by some obvious places like Lenny's Indian Head. I guess there's no danger of the CT shoreline turning into the Hamptons or the Jersey Shore, but there are lots of places for a pleasant escape from the city without going all the way to Noank!

              The NYT food writers should read CH.
