Chances are, you’ve heard a few things about New Haven (yes, it’s the intellectually-pulsing and urbane home of Yale University). But let’s skip the obvious – there’s more than meets the ‘Ivy’ League. See what we did there?
National Pizza Month
For National Pizza Month, we recognize our fair city’s historical contributions to the ubiquitous dish. New Haven-style pizza, now known the world over as “apizza,” is a style of Neapolitan pie characterized by a coal-fired, thin-crust and fresh ingredients. With stalwart classics like Frank Pepe’s and Sally’s serving hungry customers for nearly a century, not to mention a seemingly endless variety of contemporary options such as BAR – New Haven is the absolute perfect destination to celebrate National Pizza Month.
All the world’s a stage in New Haven. This season, the historic Shubert Theatre welcomes well-loved Broadway musicals while Yale Repertory Theatre and Long Wharf Theatre highlight never-before-seen original works.
New Haven Restaurant Week
This Fall, we celebrate the 10th anniversary of New Haven Restaurant Week from November 4 – 9. With more participating venues than ever before, we cannot wait to showcase the incredible culinary talent that we’re so proud to have in New Haven. Speaking of which, we caught up with some of our local chefs to share some fun Restaurant Week facts in honor of the anniversary – stay tuned!
City Wide Open Studios
