New Haven, CT - Culinary Playground or Vast Wasteland?

heids | Feb 8, 2007 11:10 AM

Hi All,

We may be moving to New Haven, and I am wondering how *small* of a small town this is. I know the nearest mall and Whole Foods are in Hartford, but is there anything in New Haven worth mentioning, culinarily speaking? Interesting restaurants with eclectic, ethnic, or fusion menus, great wine lists, wine stores, gourmet shops/bakeries/butchers... anything? From what I can find online, there's very little in New Haven, and most of it appears to be chain restaurants or pizza. I've not had much luck looking around online, and was hoping to get some information from locals.

We're between CT and Chicago, so I would love to know what New Haven has going for it. :)

Thanks in advance!
