12 Restaurants In Connecticut To Add To Your Bucketlist This Summer

Because no one can resist dinner with a view.

980

When my college roommate came to visit from Jersey last winter, my best friend from home struck her with a indelible first impression that we still laugh about to this day. She said, "Welcome to Connecticut where the the taxes are high and there's nothing to do." We all got a kick out of her playful wit, but also came to the sad realization that much, but not all, of her statement was true. Yes, Connecticut is one of the top three states in the U.S. with the highest taxes. And yes, getting snowed in for four months like this past winter is enough to make one contemplate moving cross country. However, what a lot of us locals tend to take for granted is all that a quiet, home bound state like ours has to offer. We might not have a city that never sleeps, or a city of eternal sunshine, but we do have beautifully small towns with ages of history behind them, and undeniably breathtaking views across every mountain you pass. Dine with dinner and a view at one of these twelve beautiful venues:


1. L'Escale, Greenwich


2. Millwright's Restaurant & Tavern, Simsbury


3. Fresh Salt, Old Saybrook


4. Red 36, Mystic


5. Rooftop 120, Glastonbury


6. L'Orcio, New Haven


7. Crab Shell, Stamford


8. Abbott's Lobster in the Rough, Noank


9. Oyster Club, Mystic


10. Stonebridge Restaurant, Milford


11. Outriggers, Stratford


12. Restaurant 121, Oxford

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
