I heard rumblings of a farm-to-table restaurant in Milford and had to check it out. Lucky for me - it's only 10 minutes from my house and right by the dog park! So what is it?
As you can tell from the two pics - I've been twice - once was in early March and the other in late March - thus the snow. :-)
Larry had alligator once at Andouille (now closed) and really liked it so he was excited to try it again. This was really good - so good - we were going to get it again on our second visit but they were out! They get their alligator from Louisiana - it comes frozen but is direct from the area.
I can't even explain how good this is but I'll try. I mean - obviously fettucini, cream, spinach, feta, capers and tomatoes - all sounds delicious - duh. But then - the smoked salmon - adds this whole new dimension and layer of flavor. It's not overpowering at all - it's just lucious and rich. I can't say enough about this dish. The portion sizes are big too - I only ate half and then had the rest for lunch the next day.
On our next visit - I got barbecued chicken thighs and - gasp! - forgot to take a picture!!!! They were delicious and so were the seasoned veggies I got to go with them.
Why Should You Go? Um - because everything is delicious. Don't even let me get started on their salads - here's one to give you an idea:
Cacao comes from a tree, which is a plant...Chocolate is Salad - spinach, dried cranberries, strawberries, cacoa nibs, gorgonzola, pecans, cucumber, red onions & tomatoes served with balsamic vinaigrette. Top with your choice of salmon, tofu, chicken, shrimp or tilapia
Yeah - THAT is a salad! I've heard their desserts (like Homemade Bourbon Pecan Ice Cream) are also fantastic but I've been avoiding them.
You can also take home bacon, free range eggs, local honey, bread, salad dressings and more - all made (or grown) in-house.
I sure hope I've convinced you - oh wait - I forgot one more thing - it's BYOB!! There's a drive-thru liquor barn across the street - so grab some beers on your way in!
