The ex-Executive Chef at the Harbor Court Restaurant, Galen Sampson and his wife Bridget have opened a new restaurant, The Dogwood, located at 911 W. 36th Street (same location as the old Mamie's Café). They are starting with a fairly simple menu and hope to build on it, but do not let my description of simple dissuade your from trying this "new jewel" in Hamden. It's worth a trip. The preparation and presentation are worthy of the best restaurants.
