Foodie Advice for Newtown, CT

Jambalaya | Mar 22, 2010 10:48 AM

In early May I will be doing some house sitting in this area, will have access to a car as well as a GPS. Please give me an idea of what unique and/or local spots I should hit both for dinning out as well as food stores. Particularly interested if there are any local specialities here that can be gotten no where else, or are best purchased here. I like most any cuisine including Thai, Mexican, Sushi, Indian, Italian, Greek, Seafood, white table cloth establishments, little dinners etc. Most specially interested in any veggie or healthy choices. Also cafes or nice fresh bread places for breakfast as well as good lunch spots are interesting to me. Would like to concentrate in an area of a radius of no more than about 30 miles. I will be cooking in some nights, eating out others. Recs for a good wine shop or imported food store would also be helpful. No need to include TJ's or Whole foods since I can look up those locations easily and will certainly hit them if in the area. Is there any place I can get some good fresh oysters, mussels, shrimp? Are there any farmers markets or good fresh produce places that would be interesting to check out? Lastly, I will have daytime as well as evenings free to explore. This is quite an all inclusive request, but would appreciate any info you can send my way.
