Fabulous Hunt Breakfast one more reason this Connecticut inn is famous

It’s “the most famous brunch in Connecticut,” according to The New York Times. But at The Griswold Inn, which opened its doors during the Revolutionary War, Sunday brunch is more than that: It’s tradition. The famous Hunt Breakfast at “The Gris” began when the British commandeered the inn during the War of 1812. Today, it is still a royal feast, featuring a varied menu that might include baked cornbread and scones, stations for omelets and Belgian waffles, salads, pasta, herb-roasted chicken, baked cod – and a pecan and caramel French toast souffle and chocolate brownie pudding. It’s beautiful to look at, set amid the warm splendor of the historic inn, and even more of a treat to sit down, pick up a fork – and enjoy.
