With my parents moving to Oxford in August, I'm trying to scout out local restaurants for them. They've been to 121 Restaurant, and I've read the posts about Brookside. Where else are good local (Oxford or within a 15 minute non highway drive only, please) places for them to enjoy a non-fancy, inexpensive to moderately priced meal? They can't go to a fish restaurant because of allergies, but they're open to anything else. Knowing them, they'll pick a handful of restaurants that will become their regulars when they don't want to cook dinner, but they both are retired and won't have the income to afford expensive meals out.
Which Italian restaurants are good? How's Rose's Family Restaurant? How's the diner in Seymour right past the Rt. 8 interchange? Any good ethnic restaurants? How about basic American fare? Will they have to go to Southbury for decent Chinese food? Any other upscale restaurants besides 121?
