I would like some information on the BEST of the best food (could be markets, restaurants, stands, trucks, drinks, breweries/wineries, artisan food, whatever) in Connecticut. Places that are worth a detour. I drive through CT very often, barreling down the 95, and have only stopped a handful of times.

I've done some touristy things: I went to Frank Pepe's in New Haven and then stopped at a large Italian market near New Haven that I wasn't terribly thrilled by. I went to BF Clyde's Cider Mill and then had some oysters in Mystic. Went to a few wineries. Went to Schoolhouse at Cannondale in Wilton for a decent meal. Picked some fruits and veggies at Holmberg Orchards.

Would love suggestions.
