I am moving from LA to New Haven in a couple weeks and am anxious to get my culinary and gustatory bearings. I've been to New Haven a couple times and have had a couple dismal meals at Zinc, and years ago at Scoozi. From reading this board and in general I gather New Haven is all about pizza, which I don't really care for. What's good for shopping (fish, meat, produce, wine, coffee, dogs), for late night, for delivery? Are there farmers' markets? serious food? talented chefs?
I'll be living near Wooster Square, and appreciate all suggestions.
