Restaurants, libations, and local food
Opened just this past Memorial Day in New Milford, Vegas is the kind of Mexican restaurant no town should be without. Walk into this friendly, boisterous space for the first time and you can immediately sense that the margaritas will be top-notch (I highly recommend bartender Dennis Daly’s skinny margarita), the nachos will be piled high, and the enchiladas will be thick and cheesy.
Sitting at a table on a beautiful evening at long-time local favorite West Shore Seafood in Bantam, you can close your eyes and almost feel like you are on a beach vacation.
“If we lived closer, we’d come here every week,” says my wife Melinda as we sit in a booth in Vientiane Thai Cuisine in Torrington happily slurping broth and rice noodles. “And the kids would love it.” As with so many things, she is right. The food here is absolutely delicious.
