As summer approaches, Knapps Landing, Stratford, Off the beaten path, past the airport and deserted factories, it serves luscious warm butter lobster rolls, 1/2 lb portion on a bun that stands up to the pile of delicious meat. At the intersection of the Sound and the Housatonic River, a seat on the patio affords views of passing fishing and sail boats as gulls wheel overhead. A side of mussels bathed in blue cheese sauce tops off the culinary and scenic treat at this hidden gem.

The best traditional diner on the corner is Patti's Place in Thomaston. Their traditional American breakfasts can't be beat!

If it’s the same Litte Pub as the locations in lower FFC, it’s fantastic.

Is Red Fox the place that replaced Fong’s. Fong’s was there forever. Though nothing fancy, I liked it. Basic Chinese for reasonable prices. Have not been to its replacement. Jay

My family has been going to Sundae House in Milford for a few generations now. Love a nice sundae during the summer.

La Cuisine in Branford has great breakfast and lunch items. Hubby and I are doing Easter brunch there this year again.

Sundae House is a nice spot but I do love Walnut Beach Creamery

Best casual burger place = Old Route 37 in New Fairfield.
Amazing burgers.
Super casual though and BYOB. Nice little outside dining patio. If you visit from out of town, warm night/nice nite is best time to do so, so you can eat on-site. Locals can always do takeout year round, and that’s certainly a treat.
Menu changes with the seasons too (pot pies in the winter months, lobster rolls in the summer. Plus the year-round staples — chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, and daily burger specials aside from the regular burger menu offerings, which are sometimes quite wild concoctions, but always delicious ).
Ice cream courtesy of some place in Milford, with seasonal milkshakes (pumpkin pie shakes in the fall, peppermint twist shakes in the winter, and the usual chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, etc. year round.)

Buck’s. They are a big supplier for restaurants and ice cream places.

Just thought of this. An underrated gem on the Milford/West Haven border is Dive Bar. They’re doubling their space now! Great bar food, beer, and some of the best burgers in CT. And a great view of the water!

And speaking of bar food, not underrated, but Dew Drop Inn might have the best wings in the state (sorry TK’s).

Yes now that you mention it, it is Bucks. I couldn’t think of the name before. Not sure how their plain scoop ice cream is, just had the milkshakes there and the shakes are good, especially the seasonal ones. For regular ice cream though in NF these days, we have this new and oh so good place called Candlewood Creamery. Opened last year by a family who already has a creamery/ice cream parlor somewhere in Westchester. Same family opened Icon’s Sports Bar in NF about 3 years ago, which is also fantastic. And a new cafe, breakfast/lunch joint called Candlewood Cafe, about three weeks ago. They’re taking over the whole town Lol! 😂. Their 3 restaurants are concentrated in the Candlewood Corners section of town (about a mile east of the main center of NF, heading towards the Lake).

Definitely a welcome breath of fresh air in these parts.
