New Haven likes to eat out

Anybody catch this SOUNDOFF post on NHRegister.com last week?

We asked readers a simple request- to name their favorite restaurant. And they did, in droves. 134 responses popped up on that page.

But that’s not the part that astounds me, I knew there were plenty of great places to eat your heart out here in New Haven. What astounds me is how few of these places were actually repeated in those comments.

I nerded out and tallied through every single comment only to find just about every reader gave a shout out to a different place throughout the greater New Haven area. I expected to see a long list of Pepe’s vs. Sally’s. But what I got was variety. In taste, and in options. Again- not surprised by the variety itself; but it’s fascinating to see how proud New Haveners are of their treasured little eateries, and that everyone has a different one.

So if you want a place to go out to eat tonight, why not just take a look at that Soundoff post and pick something new or at random? I’d be shocked if anyone had been to every one of those places.

The best responses though?

“My mother’s house in Hamden got them all beat. The prices are fantastic. “
“The vending machine in the New Haven Register first floor. It’s top notch. “

Vote in NH Register’s ‘Best of Elm City’

Convenient. I show up and the New Haven Register decides to hold their first “Best of” readers’ poll.

So what you waiting for? Go vote for your favorite things in the Elm City so other new to New Haven folks know where to go. Voting ends May 26, and every ballot counts – in print or online.

And for voting, you could win a “luxurious night out” on the Register, with limo service from Connecticut Limo, dinner for 2 at the winning “finest restaurant” and 2 VIP seats at Joker’s Wild Comedy Club.


    Who’s the new guy?

    Chris March, a twenty-something music geek packed up his things and moved to New Haven, Ct from suburban Pa to join the online team at the New Haven Register.
