traveling to New Haven, CT
My 2 daughters and I are planning a roadtrip to Yale next week. The youngest is looking at colleges. We will be driving up from Atlanta and I wanted to make sure we hit some authentic CT food while we were up there.
What are some local places to get authentic food in New Have or along the 95?
Stowe's in West Haven for CT lobster rolls and fried seafood, Super Duper Weenie in Fairfield for hot dogs, BAR and Sally's are great options for pizza as well (I enjoy the mashed potato and bacon at BAR), Skappo or L'Orcio for Italian. Ibiza is great for Spanish and Prime 16 has excellent burgers, craft beer, and fried pickles, but those aren't as uniquely CT as the other choices.
On the way to New Haven:
Super Duper Weenie or Rawley's Hot Dogs in Fairfield both good.
In New Haven:
Lenny & Joe's on the water for fried seafood/lobster rolls
I like Pepe's (get there before they open)
Also enjoy Dim sum on sat & Sun at Great Wall on Whitney.
The Anchor is super cool and has been around forever...jody foster used to frequent as a yalie.
Recently did not enjoy Ibiza. Spendy and not nearly as good as they think they are, I enjoyed barcelona much more and it's absolutely gorgeous inside.
Archie Moore's for wings ...
Soul de Cuba
Miya Japanese Restaurant (really interesting sushi—vegetarian options)
