ITA on Ginza for sushi. The best I've had in CT was at Mikado in Middletown.

The BEST I've had ever was at Iron Chef Morimoto's place in Philly. Ridiculous.
If you go a couple of blocks down from Ginza, to Sake Cafe, you'll be pleasantly surprised -- it's delicious!

exactly. my tastes are rather hard to pin down. i like places like Luna's, DaVincis, Joey Garlics but i also like places like Pizza Hut which a lot of people don't like. and then there's places like Illiano's and No Anchovies that i will eat without a problem but are not my favorite. so i know what i like when i have it and usually other peoples suggestions don't quite match up.

looks like they made a jpg image of their menu initially at a smaller size then when they stretched it out for the web site, it became unreadable.

I'm from CT, but have been in Colorado for a very long time now. I miss "back east" pizza and grinders so much I can hardly stand it. Even places out here that insist they have pizza like back east are clueless.

Here's what I tell people in CO about pizza back east. That there's a good pizza place in just about every town, on just about every block, all over the state of CT. Italian pizza places, Greek pizza places, I loved them all.

When I go home, the first thing I do is get an eggplant grinder (non-existent out here) ... and then I'm in heaven.

All this is by way of saying that you all don't know how lucky you are to have all those places to get pizza and grinders (another thing no one out here knows how to make), and as someone said, even a bad pizza is still pretty good.

Yup, I'm practically a stone throw's away from a spectacular pizza place.

Jimmy's Apizza - Milford, CT

I always found the Danbury area a little lacking in pizza, until recently as they've gained a couple good places like Stanziato, Laurentano and Pepe's. But even Danbury's pizza being meh for CT is beyond what you'll get in a lot of other states.

Good, but Pappa's is the best choice in Milford, IMHO.
