BERKSHIRE eats ( staying near Hancock Ma)

So all the threads on the Berkshire eats are over a year old....can I get any CH's here that can suggest:
- Fri night - light but interesting eats - not heavy or expensive
- Best Breakfast spots
- Sat night - music and/or outdoor eats --not heavy, something fun + interesting
- Lunches - will wing it unless some CH's have "not to miss" spots....
- Sunday Brunch????

State Street Saloon and Smokehouse -New London Ct

Anyone been here?!

Some friends want to take a hike to New London for a birthday celebration.....this spot came up,never heard of it - - cannot find a website - but they have some reviews on some of the other usual review sites.....

But I find Chowhounders to be more in line with my likes/dislikes....

ASHEVILLE lunch

I think we might drive up to ASHEVILLE while we are in Greenville to check out Biltmore -

Any recommendations on light lunch, casual lunch spots?

Best time to catch that lunch before the rest of the tourista get hungry?

Greenville SC to Charleston with perhaps stop at Columbia? Looking for eats along the way

Taking a drive on a Sunday after a wedding in Greenville south to Charleston. I see Columbia is along the way.

We plan to leave late morning, so will have likely had breakfast in Greenville at the Westing (unless CH's have a Sunday breakfast spot that is yummy and scenic?)

So it looks like a 3 hour drive - and we are planning our day now - so taking the I26 into Charleston - are there MUST EAT stops we have to consider?

We are going to Charleston and staying with friends for a few days - is there any SPECIAL foodie treats to find along the route to bring to them?

Don't fail me CH'rs!

BEST BLOODY MARY's along CT Eastern Shoreline??

So - with the melting of the snow and a recent visit to Boston I have Bloody Mary's on my mind.

We went to a brunch in Boston where they had the most outstanding make your own Bloody Mary setup!!!

Anything like that along CT shoreline? Heck anywhere in central CT?

ANYONE BEEN TO ==> 1757 Tavern in Seymour CT

Saw a quick segment on a local news show - bit out of my way - but loved the chef, check out the menu on their website and looked very solid - not your usual red checker fare.....

So anyone been there? If it is a good as it sounds and looks via menu - now with the nice weather - I might be inclined to make it a trip and plan a ride around it.....they have a nice brunch menu too

Blue Hound Cookery - Ivoryton Ct

Well - all I can say - this is a great find - very new and very ambitious, cozy and a fun menu , good cooking and great service.
Small enough that the owners are a couple - Mrs. works front of the house and Mr, is the chef and master of the kitchen.
Right now they have no liquor license - so it is BYOB with a pp corkage charge....
I had the catfish and hubs had the gumbo....both done extremely well.
no time to detail - but do suggest trying them out - tell them Ellen and Ken sent you (Mike is a great server!)

Ivortyon Tavern Cafe

IVORYTON TAVERN CAFE : Well - I was told Tavern changed hands - so we decided to give a go . Went early on a Friday night. We walked in around 5:30 and stood by the door for a about 5 minutes. Hmmm. So we saw an open table to the left and decided to move toward it - ALL of a SUDDEN someone pops out of somewhere, points at us and yells - YOU CAN"t SIT THERE! Go sit over at that table...." sheesh - that was welcoming - we were in a pretty good mood , so after pointing out that I could not sit at a high top "she" said - "well go take that one over in the corner..."? - Outstanding hospitality skills....anyway - we brushed it off, sat down and ordered some drinks, the waitress was nice and accommodating. Food was just 'ok'- I had the fish and chips (which I have had here before) and the chips were soggy and unseasoned and the fish was cooked to proper level, but also no seasoning and the batter was kind of soggy too.... the other meal ordered was a salad and was decent - - apple dumpling was fine...the kicker was the menu pricing was not a great deal given the quality of the food on a Friday night......so, not sure I would recommend to my friends if they ask where to go grab some dinner - but, ok for drinks (also a wee bit more $$ given the venue)..http://www.ivorytontavern.com/

Fresh Fudge along eastern Connecticut shoreline area?

So - I just had the most heavenly fudge when I was up in Vermont - pumpkin and maple walnut....

Used to be a place in Old Saybrook a long while ago that had homemade fudge and seasonal flavors.

Anyone know of a place where they make outstanding fudge?

So Portland has its own CH board - but BEND is pretty old tips and since I know NOTHING of the area and am still planning a route

ALL IDEAS ACCEPTED!

We are adventurous CH's - so bring it on!

Mike's Deli - Old Saybrook

While I would concur on the quality of the food - I would tell you the owner is a royal pia and difficult to deal with -

You ask a simple question and its an insult to him

For the prices you pay for his food - I expect a little customer friendliness -

I return here in spite of myself - but if I see him behind the counter I generally turnaround and walk out -

I consider myself easy to get along with and dont complain about food spots even when I should -

But - if I can't get an answer without a snippy side to it - I can take my $$ elsewhere - they are not that much better for the same sandwich I can get elsewhere in/around town.

thats my 2 cents..... B-0
