Star Turkish Restaurant, Bridgeport

Delicious. Tucked into a side street, Markle Court, in downtown Bridgeport. Competitively priced menu. Generous portions. My new go-to place.

excellent [Rivenova,Stratford, Ct.]

Five of us ate at the Rivenova restaurant in Stratford, CT last night....can't figure out why the place was so empty. Service was excellent -- attentive without hovering. Four had fish -- chilean sea bass, sole florentine, and a dish with three kinds of seafood. The presentation was beautiful, and they were all happy with the flavor and temperature of their food. I had eggplant -- not the best I've ever had, but a substantial portion and quite tasty.
I'd go back in a heartbeat, and I hope others do too....I'd hate to see them go under.
This is where the White Lilac Tea Room used to be.

Good restaurant halfway Bridgeport/Windsor I-91

Looking for a decent restaurant not too far off 91, probably somewhere near Cromwell. (is that halfway between Bpt and Windsor?) Okay if a little closer to the Windsor side. Vegetarian options important.

Where Best Lean Corned Beef Sandwich

Not a traditional place for corned beef, but we were at Metric, the new restaurant on Cannon Street in Bridgeport, and my (picky) husband had a reuben. Coleslaw on the sandwich. The meat was lean, the sandwich full enough but not ridiculously big and he thoroughly enjoyed it.
It's a charming restaurant -- we'll go back and try other foods. (somewhere else on this board someone recommended the pizza)

Portugese food in ...where?...RI? Elsewhere?

Bridgeport CT has a large Portuguese community. Many restaurants...Omanel on Main Street is one of the best known. Also Carmelinas, in the downtown area.

Hammond's Candies around Milford or New Haven, CT?

I don't know for sure, but you could try Cracker Barrel in Milford.

Could you resend the website? Thanks.

Windsor CT (Bradley)

Looking for a good place for lunch. Within 20 or so minutes of Bradley Airport. Would prefer not to go to a chain restaurant.

A chowhound's return to CT

Bereket Turkish Restaurant 4031 Main Street, Bridgeport

Food is excellent. The place is a hole in the wall behind a gas station, so for colder months is better for takeout. There are two tables in a very small space, and a couple of stools at a counter in the window. However, in the warmer weather, you can sit outside at tables in back. So close to traffic, and yet so far away:) They have their own garden, so at end of summer the tomatoes are fresh as fresh can be.

Hungarian brandy in U.S.?

I'd like to find out whether Vilmos pear brandy is available in the United States.

Good restaurant rte 7 Norwalk

Went to Amerigo. Thanks for all the suggestions -- we'll be doing this again. And again. So will try some of the other suggestions.
Food was excellent, and choices were not run-of-the-mill. I thought it was a little pricey, but (surprisingly) my glass of wine cost less than her side salad.
I'd go back, and would recommend it to others.

Good restaurant rte 7 Norwalk

Where exactly is it?

Good restaurant rte 7 Norwalk

Thanks to all. I'll be meeting a friend for dinner....neither of us is familiar with the area, so don't want to stray too far from the Parkway.
BUT....I'm storing the information for some leisurely Sunday exploring w/my husband.
This board is a wonder...I've asked friends, people at work, strangers (!) and no-one knew anyplace, but here you all are!

Good restaurant rte 7 Norwalk

Is there a good restaurant --- more than a diner, but less than pricey --- on (or near) Rte. 7 in Norwalk, not too far from the Merritt Parkway?
