Portland To Connecticut - chowhound treasures

I know this topic has come up before in variations, but I haven't quite found what I'm looking for. And I'm not entirely sure what THAT is.

The route is this: 295 to 95 to 495 to 290 to 90 to 84 to 91 to 95. Winding up in Fairfield (but sometimes NYC).

We often stop at Rein's Deli, which gets trashed here but is actually good for what I'm into. (Not so many other highway trips I take where I can stop and get whitefish salad on rye w/ lettuce+tomato, or decent herring, smoked salmon etc. - I like their "appetizing" options, I suppose).

But I'd love other options. Ideally midway between, but anywhere that's not too much of detour is helpful.

Not interested in meat or mostly meat places.
Veggie + Fish options essential. Willing to take somewhat longer detours for real quality. Prefer less expensive.

So what treasures are awaiting my discovery?
