New Haven – Landing Page (Dining)

DINING

“New Haven’s robust culinary scene goes way beyond crust, sauce and cheese (even if it is the best around)”

– USA Today 2017

Where Eating is Believing

Always hungry? Not to worry, because you’ve come to the right place. The Elm City is home to a dazzling array of gastronomic delight, offering just about any cuisine you can think of. In need of some date night fun or a leisurely Sunday brunch with some adult beverages? Trust us, we’ve got this. From Modern American to Turkish, Spanish, French, Indian, Japanese, desserts, coffee, libations, craft beer and everything in-between – we’ve got it all.

We do like to brag about all the culinary talent in the Elm City, and for good reason. We have an unfair collection of award-winning chefs like Claire Criscuolo of local favorite, Claire’s Corner Copia, and the innovative Chef Bun Lai of Miya’s Sushi – who’s been making tidal waves in the sustainable seafood movement for years. Did you notice that we haven’t even talked about pizza yet? Quite frankly, words don’t do it justice, but let’s just say that we have our very own delicious style of thin-crust, coal-fired pies (we call it “apizza”) and that we can go toe-to-toe with the likes of New York and Chicago any day of the week.

Simply put – we’ve always eaten very well in New Haven, and we know you will too.

Pizza

Among the natural laws that govern the universe, one universal foodie edict remains: “You’re not legally allowed to love pizza if you haven’t eaten it in New Haven, Connecticut.” (via Thrillist)

Brunch

Hunting for the best burger in the country? The search stops on the Connecticut coast, where New Haven ‘steaks’ its claim as the burger capital of New England…

Sweets

There is no better feeling than indulging in your sweet tooth and no better place to do it than in the Elm City (don’t worry, we won’t tell your dentist).

Coffee & Tea

If you’re in need of a little pep in your step, look no further. Caffeinators can rejoice the moment they set foot into any one of our many (and incredible) cafés…

Food Trucks

Fact: Some of the best food comes on four wheels. Need proof? Take your pick of de-licious dishes served from the windows of food trucks scattered across New Haven, where a street food revolution of epic proportions (er-portions) has taken the city by storm.
