After the Ride: Local Favorites

OTTO The pizza and salads are delicious. I continue to struggle with the general attitude of "too cool" to serve you that Jonathan's restaurant's consistently serve up.
Simon's Marketplace Awesome service & sandwiches. Has a nice bar like seating that faces Main Street
17 Main St, Chester CT — (860) 526-8984
Whistle Stop Cafe watch out for Austin's Wrangler omelette... Sooo good, but the horseradish cheese is not for the faint of heart!
Deep River Pizza taco pizza is epic, by far all their pizzas are some of the best ive had in CT or anywhere, likely biases to their amazing crusts and side dishes.
160 Main St, Deep River CT — (860) 526-1348
Two Wrasslin Cats fantastic food,coffee and staff!
374 Town St, East Haddam CT — (860) 891-8446

Ivoryton Tavern Cafe The burgers are HUGE!! They also have delicious quesadillas :)
Village Pizza The calamari is awesome!
26 Falls Rd, Moodus CT — (860) 873-1416
Marley's Service is a little slow but the food is good and so much fun to take the ferry there!
The Griswold Inn This is the oldest continuously-run tavern in the US. Founded in the late 1700s, it has been under the stewardship of only 6 families & during Prohibition local yachtsmen came for the entertainment.
36 Main St, Essex CT — (860) 767-1776
Olive Oyl's Fresh, gourmet foods at an awesome price. Fresh ground espresso and artisanal rarities make this a unique food destination in the idyllic riverside village of Essex.
77 Main St, Essex CT — (860) 767-4909
Creative Cooking: A New Orleans Restaurant Gin & Tonic comes in a pint glass! And Beefeater is their house gin…nice!
Cuckoo’s Nest Mexican Food Queso dip is nacho cheese and pico de gallo is crap. Margaritas were decent at least.
Alforno Ristorante & Brick Oven Pizzeria Wonderful specials! Seasonal fare. Great pastas and Northern Italian dishes. Brick oven pizza and crusty artisan bread is worth the trip! Unbelievable selection of fine wines. Friendly service!
Mindy K's Deli The menu is awesome and colorful!
The Tea Kettle Restaurant The pancakes, breakfast. It's our favorite place in town
