We are not only the favorite restaurant among locals but are also highly rated by the New York Times, Zagats, Connecticut Magazine and local newspapers throughout Connecticut.

Our raw bar boasts one of the best selections of oysters around.

All of our delectable desserts are house-made and baked fresh daily.
