My daughter is GF. I'd recommend Pure Love Bakery in Avon. It's a godsend. Everything is gluten free and reasonably priced. They also have fresh pizza dough in the fridge which is the best GF pizza option I've had in our 13 years trying them out.My wife is gluten free and likes Vegan places, anyone been to 21 Oak in Manchester?
I ate at Carlson's landing last night on way back from Airport. Had the lamb. It was killer.
I've only scanned the list but one surprise was not seeing L'Orcio listed for best Italian, especially given the other ones on the list. I've been to six of the others listed--five of the them more than once--and L'Orcio is better than all of them imo.
Have you been to Sherkaan Indian Street Food in New Haven yet? Nice to see that it made their best Indian list. It's where Thali Too used to be. I had no idea it was there but stumbled into it while I was on Broadway a couple months ago and it was great; been back once since and it was very good once again. Their "Untidy Joseph" is basically a sloppy joe with ground , seasoned lamb on a griddled bun, with picked onions and a fried egg. Best thing I've had there so far, but their Hot Chicken Sandwich is also excellent.
I haven't tried House of Naan, which is also on their list, but now I'm eyeing it for lunch...
Have you tried House of Naan? Worth it? How compare to Sherkaan?I am pretty much above all, these days at least, an Indian afficionado. At least once a week. Im not enamored with that list. They are all decent to excellent .....but........... Ive been all over the state. Last Friday I had the best Ive had in CT.
Kumar's in Manchester.
I may be a little biased because my time in India was spent southeast on the bay of Bengal (Chennai) which is different than standard Indian because of locale. More coconut used in certain dishes and more fish offerings.
This place nailed it. Was recommended it by someone I know here from Chennai, and it is in a strip mall plaza. Walked in and we were the only people not from southern india in the place. All Indian families, tables packed. I can't sing its praises loud enough.
Haveli in Middletown should be on list. More standard, but real good.
Taste of India in Mystic nails punjabi.
I do like Sherkaan alot.
Haven’t been there yet. Want to try it.Have you tried House of Naan? Worth it? How compare to Sherkaan?
They put Strega as one of the best overall excellence and Italian? I'm flabbergasted. I think Rosso Vino and Pasta Cosi are both better in Branford. @8893 agree about L'Orcio also. Adriana's is very good but wouldn't put it in the best category although you probably get more bang for your buck there than anywhere else but I probably group it with Tre Scalini and Portofino.
Everything pricey in Essex these days. BlackJacks just opened too. Pricey.I've heard good things but also heard it's tad pricey. Essex bar regulars are in a panic with the Black Seal being closed. Don't want to pay the prices at Carlson's
Did work at swanky really nice people. Just don't know how they will make it. They plan on adding pizza ovens to sell this springEverything pricey in Essex these days. BlackJacks just opened too. Pricey.
The just opened a grill store, Swanky’s , sells grills and patio furniture. Really pricey.
The Essex/los charros pricey.
Don’t get me started on steam train
Did House of Naan for lunch today because I had a hankering for spicy food to clear my head, and because it provided a nice opportunity for a good walk there and back on a day with decent temps.I haven't tried House of Naan, which is also on their list, but now I'm eyeing it for lunch...
Interesting that "freshly" grilled is the lead selling point, in contrast to the Grilled Chicken sandwich above it.
Then they should hit up the Blue Hound in Ivoryton.I've heard good things but also heard it's tad pricey. Essex bar regulars are in a panic with the Black Seal being closed. Don't want to pay the prices at Carlson's
