Hi, NE chowhounders-
Looking for a recommendation for dinner next Saturday in Mystic, CT. I spent a semester studying at the Seaport in 1996, but never really had enough money to eat anywhere good and wasn't old enough to be served alcohol. I'm going to be back for a visit with my husband and meeting my parents and teenage brother. We need some input on a nice restaurant for a party of 5. We're all adventurous eaters, but coming from Boston and NYC I don't think we're interested in Asian food. We love seafood, fresh veggies, and my mom doesn't eat meat. Price range is probably anything mid to mid-high end- I'm thinking $20-30 entrees. I'd also like to know how essential a reservation is for an early (probably 6ish) dinner at each place since my parents refuse to commit to a schedule. Also, I'd prefer somewhere in Mystic- not neighboring towns.
By searching, I've narrowed our choices to:
Anthony J's- pizzas there might be a good choice for my little brother,
Bravo Bravo- no $ listed on online menu
Water St. Cafe
Finally, I've been to the Daniel Packer Inne in the past but their website seems to be defunct and I remember the food as being vaguely hotel-ish so unless I hear otherwise, I've ruled that out.
Thanks for your thoughts!
