Does anyone remember Fritz's Restaurant - Woodbury CT (Austrian)

cheereeo | Apr 14, 2010 08:26 AM

I was curious if anyone remembers this incredible restaurant that used to be on the corner of Sherman Hill Road and Main Street South, just north of Carole Peck's and Carmen Anthony's. It closed back in the 90s, and I still cannot get my memories of their incredible Austrian food out of my head. I was going to ask on here if anyone knew the name of the chef and perhaps where he may be cooking now, but I found an old NYT article from 1993 where they named the chef owner as Gottfried Fritz Halbedl. I couldn't find anything about him when I googled his name, other than maybe he is now living in Boca or working for Royal Caribbean, but can't be sure it is him. Perhaps some foodies on here know if he ever opened anything new. I love Austrian food. I know; I know Clock Tower in Cheshire is on my list. This place was so sweet and the sauces incredible, many with a veal stock base--yummy. And the order-before-your-dinner homemade souffles.
