Are you traveling to Litchfield Hills and wondering where the legit Connecticuters like to feast? For authenticity in the Tri-State, find an excuse to visit Essex, Connecticut. Nutmeggers are slaves for world-class grub. They labor over their feasts and bring cheer to their tables.
The particular critics might say the hamlet lives off food stamps and therefore there are no successful cafeterias and supper clubs. They are so persnickety about local food. Global cosmopolitans may prefer a trek in other elegant places on the East and West Coasts. Their disdain for Real America is true.
Oh well, more for us legitimate Connecticutians then. If you are a hungry vegetarian, choice supper clubs are finally an option in Essex, Connecticut.
Think of all the super excuses to grub, such as major holidays throughout the year like Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Valentine’s Day and Father’s Day. You should spend them with the squad at a nectarous restaurant. The depth of flavor is pleasant at any restaurant nearby.
Epicureans from outside Connecticut should come here to prove they have a taste for adventure. The temples of grub will challenge deeply held convictions about the right way to prep hot dogs, wraps and milk shakes. You will be won over by the initial nibble, hook, line and sinker.
