Breaking free!

Yesterday I decided to add another notch to the belt, and visited Louis Lunch in New Haven witch is known as the birthplace of the Hamburger Sandwich.
Just over one hour drive from New York, hidden on a little side street, a small charming place with wonderful service, and insanely tasty food!
Ketchup, mayonnaise is tabu, only a slice of tomato and one onion ring in a toast! Forget about French Fries, how about potato salad instead!
The original Seth Thomas eight day clock still ticking strong!
A great day trip for sure, and lovely food!

Looking forward to resuming travelling

I haven’t made it to Louis Lunch yet. But I’ll make a point to visit on my next trip to New Haven.

Whenever I’m in New Haven I always think of coal-fired pizza first. Anybody who knows New Haven knows the town is divided by which local pizza you prefer. You’re either a devotee of Pepe’s or Sally’s. I definitely prefer Sally’s, but Pepe’s is pretty darn...

My kids regularly make (or did, before COVID) the pilgrimage to Zuppardi's in West Haven, and I think it's justified. (But what do I know? In New Haven itself, I prefer Modern.)

Hmmm? I didn't know about the pizza, I just placed it on the list;-)))

Did you take a photo of the vertical burger broilers? Castings from the late 1800's. Thanks for making me drool! -John

Great place, with good food.

If you want something different in New Haven, the row of taco trucks off of the Long Wharf exit is fantastic, Mexicali being my favorite. Before the pandemic, I would visit our Manhattan office once a month. On my drive north to Massachusetts I would make... 

Love the motto!
