Connecticut Magazine Releases Experts’ Picks + Reader’s Choice List for 2015

20 Dec

Every year, Connecticut Magazine comes out with a comprehensive list called Reader’s Choice where people from across the state can vote for their favorite restaurants. In tandem, they also publish an Experts’ Picks list that is crafted by food writers, food critics, bloggers, cookbook authors, and this year even a former restaurant owner. Well, we were honored this year to be a part of the election process as two of the Experts! The resulting list is one that pays equal weight to all the restaurants throughout the state, not just in New Haven, Fairfield, or Hartford Counties. In particular, we were very happy with this list because so many of our favorite spots were chosen as top picks in the state. Congratulations to all the winners!
