Casual dining, but with a regional touch, is found in all parts of Connecticut. Did you know that the hamburger was invited at Louis' Lunch in New Haven? That's right.
That seaside city also is famous for its authentic Italian pizza, which you can find at Sally's Apizza and Frank Pepe's The Spot.
Other casual restaurants everywhere welcome families and people on the go. Take a sandwich break and plan family activities
for your vacation.
