32 Places to Eat in Connecticut
Our recent list of 30 Places We Love in Connecticut received some great feedback. We’re glad so many people enjoy (and agreed with) some of our favorite spots. I thought about including some of our favorite places to eat, but decided food needs its own post!
This is by no means a comprehensive list. Our suggestions below are definitely Fairfield and New County heavy, as that’s our home base. If you’re looking for a larger variety, check out this recent list from Connecticut Magazine. I subscribe to Connecticut magazine and always save this annual issue- so many great suggestions. One of my other favorite guides for dining in Connecticut is CTBites.com. They offer weekly newsletters with updates, special events, and holiday menus.

Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History in New Haven, CT
New Haven, Connecticut is practically in my backyard. My husband and I frequently head to New Haven for date night with friends; there are so many great restaurants. I’ve also taken some professional development courses as a teacher at Yale University and have attended performing arts shows and concerts at some of the local theaters. However, we don’t bring the kids to New Haven as often as we should. I keep a running list of places to visit, and on a recent free morning, we decided to explore the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History.
