Connecticut has a long-standing reputation for fine dining, as well as a strong farming heritage. Many of the restaurants here have depended upon locally grown foods and products for generations — long before there was a “farm-to-table movement.” Today, we’re proud of the many chefs and culinary professionals who build their innovative menus around sustainable, local ingredients, and we’re honored to have so many of the farmers, fishermen and other producers continue to bring the freshest, finest product to our tables.
