Reviews of Rosemary & Thyme, Rise and Green Room

New London's Green Room excels at Southern comfort food

The Whaling City welcomes another top-flight restaurant, this one with southern roots.

For weekend breakfast or lunch, Rosemary & Thyme in Stonington is a great option

The Saturday- and Sunday-only breakfast and lunch spot is located in Stonington’s Velvet Mill.

Rise also shines in downtown Mystic

Good things come in small packages, and my most recent proof is Rise in Mystic.

A recap of recent dining reviews

Looks at Vincitori Apizza, Mia's Cafe, and RD86 Space

New London's RD86 Space is a cleverly conceived and delicious destination

Fusing a visionary menu and direction with a sense of community spirit, RD86 Space hopes to help define and revitalize New London's downtown.

Breakfast, yes, but Mia's serves up flavorsome dishes at every meal

A lot of folks think of Mia’s as a breakfast place, but the restaurant, a longtime fixture on the Pawcatuck/Westerly border, serves three meals a day.

To the victors go the spoils at Niantic’s newest pizza place

It rises above the pack in spectacular fashion and in more ways than one.
