Cheeseburgers are the classic, American staple, here are 10 places in Eastern Conn. to try

Few things are as American as a delicious cheeseburger. Cooked and topped however you want it, there's so many ways to enjoy a burger. We could go on and on, much like Bubba talking about shrimp from Forest Gump, but we think these local restaurants across Eastern Connecticut do a better job of showcasing all the ways you can chow down on the quintessential American staple.

7 new Connecticut restaurants to try this October

A look at some new and interesting places on the Connecticut dining scene. Six years after opening his Appétit Bistro in Port Chester, Edwin Montoya debuted a second location in early September, bringing French cuisine to South Norwalk's Washington Street Historic District. The menu combines classic French dishes and others with Mediterranean influences, with standouts like escargot en croute, duck à l’orange, hanger steak frites with peppercorn sauce and Italian-inspired chicken scarpariello.

Two of Watertown’s Best Bakeries Expand to Second Connecticut Location

When Mrs. Large and I need sweets, we typically head to Watertown. Watertown is stacked with businesses that cater to your sweet tooth. If we want ice cream, I can pick up Arethusa Farm, or Big Dipper at Labonne's, or, old venerable, Carvel. If we want cookies and cupcakes, there are two places that we truly love - Hardcore Sweet Bakery, at 76 Westbury Park Road and Itty Bitty Cookie Company at 659 Main Street.
