Colchester, CT - a culinary wasteland?

EasternCT | Nov 20, 2011 03:01 PM

We recently moved to Colchester and are amazed at how little options there are for restaurants in such a large town. There are seven pizza restaurants in town. There are five Chinese restaurants in town and two of them are owned by the same owner. For upscale dining options, we have Nunu's, Cafe Mangia and Gilbertie's Place. Nunu's & Cafe Mangia are italian. And finally there is the doomed Cafe on Main who started off strong in town, but now has resorted to a $6 menu and installed an ATM to accept cash only. Seedy. I think a good mexican restaurant would kill in town. Or how about Thai, or German, or a seafood restaurant, or a good pub with good pub food, or anything except pizza and chinese. How can we get some variety in town? I know I am not alone!!
