I will be arriving in CT, Monday, October 12 and staying through Friday. I'd love to sample some quintessential New England food and I am looking for advice. Please point me in the direction of some moderately-priced establishments. Excellent pubs, taverns, mom and pops and the like are desired. Off the beaten path is absolutely welcomed (as long as it is not too far of a drive from where I am staying). Hartford or New Haven seem close, so any suggestions in those areas are fine, too.
I am also interested in hearing suggestions on the best locations to shoot some photos of the fall foilage.
