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.

Looking for the best restaurants in Connecticut? There are so many great spots to choose from, so we turned to the Connecticut Restaurant Association for the 2019 winners and nominees of its annual CRAzies Awards. The awards consider hundreds of contenders, select a short list of nominee finalists, and finally, award winners for the best restaurants in each region. These spots were each chosen by more than 10,000 public ballots, as well as a panel of 25 judges made up of media restaurant reviewers, food writers, influencers, critics and past winners. Hope you’ve brought your appetite!
