Atlantic Seafood

Atlantic Seafood came highly recommended by my attorney Bull, who lives in Old Saybrook. His brother DotCom and my aunt Judy confirmed its the place for serious seafood on this stretch Connecticut shore.

Etta called around and priced lobsters. Not only was Atlantic Seafood a dollar or two cheaper than competitors, they also did not have a tiered pricing structure for different weight lobsters.

The selection of seafood was fantastic with multiple delicious species of fish, oysters and shellfish, and shrimp of gigantic size as well. We stuck to the lobster. Etta gave these guys a 12 minute hot water bath.

The lobsters were filled with sweet meat! The last night in Connecticut, I had my sweets (Aunty, Etta, Roxie) and my treats (lobsters, pickles, Nutter Butters). Who could ask for anything more?

Cohen’s Bagel Company

Cohen’s has the best bagel I’ve eaten in over a decade on the Connecticut shore. We stopped in for a late Monday breakfast, around noon, and there were still many bagels.

I got egg and bacon on an onion bagel. It was prepared in less than ten minutes and the flavors really came together on a toasty, slightly chewy bagel. These bagels are made with good water!

Village Cheese Shanty

I was reading about our trip to the Leelanlau Peninsula, and one story captivated me, probably because it was about eating. It said take the driving tour along the national park, and then head up to Fishtown for a sandwich at Village Cheese Shanty. After doing just that, I can’t think of a better combination.

The sandwiches are amazingly fresh and feature house-made pretzel bread. My sandwich, the Fishtown, was the vegetarian option. The dill cheese was delicious. The selection of local craft beer in can and bottle, along with many nonalcoholic options, was on point.

On a sunny Monday in late September, there was no line, and we easily claimed one of the tables out front. I can’t believe my sandwich included avocado and was only $6!
