That reminds me, Redding Roadhouse when it was actually good (a few owners ago).

Also the old Community Table.

Joel Viehland (old Community Table chef) is supposedly opening a new restaurant in Kent called Ore Hill. He opened a bar/small plates place called Swyft and the restaurant was to follow but seems it hasnt opened yet and Swyft has gotten mixed reviews so who knows..

He had another place between C.T. and the new one which was in Sandy Hook but I never made it there.

Old C.T. was definitely one of the best meals I’ve ever had in CT.

I heard they may try to open a spot in Bridgeport next.
Interesting. Thanks for the information.

Yes! I loved the old Redding Roadhouse, up until about 5 years ago.

I didn’t like Oktoberfest menu at Heidelberg either.

But years ago had some amazing dinners.

My go to’s for German now are Rothbard in Westport and Harlan Haus in Bridgeport. Would love to see a good German place open in New Haven.

No, this was a small family owned restaurant that I think closed sometimes in the 90s / early 2000s and the family moved to TX. For many kids growing up in our tiny town at that time, working there was a rite of passage.
