I'm a CT native but haven't actually lived in the state for 4 years. I have pretty much zero recollection of the best food spots, so I could really use some help.
I'll be in the state next week and I promised I'd take my 17 year old sister out for a birthday lunch. I'm looking for a place that's fun and appealing to teenagers. In other words, not too uptight, not too fancy, and with simple, yet delicious, foods. My sister isn't into trying new cuisines; she likes her food to be very Americanized (terribly boring, I know). I was excited when I discovered MacDaddy's because that would be right up her alley, but then I found out it's closed because they're expanding the franchise.
At this point, I'm at a complete loss and could use any help you're willing to offer. My current backup plans are either O'Rourke's or one of the pizza joints in New Haven.
As for location, I'm pretty much willing to drive anywhere in the state, but we are from the New Haven area if you know of any gems there.
Thanks in advance!
