Restaurants, libations, and local food
The Cue has joined the rapidly expanding hipster occupation of Bank Street and delivers down-home, affordable, Southern style cooking––seven days a week.
It’s all too rare when a restaurant’s interior is as good as its food. Located at the juncture of Sharon Road and Route 44 in the old firehouse, Fern is a treat for both the eye and the palate.

Risks seem to have a way of working out for chef David Di Stasi. Today Di Stasi is arguably cooking some of the best and most exciting food in Connecticut.
The voice of the people is the voice of God. And once again the people of Litchfield County have spoken when it comes to nominating their favorite restaurants in Litchfield Magazine’s 2024 Reader’s Choice awards.

Sparrow is located in the former Zaragoza and is open seven days a week. Owner John Bourdeau has given the once-dark space a light and airy hip aesthetic where they serve Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches, Chinese bao buns, Korean fried chicken, and much more.

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.

“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.
