Best on the Shoreline!
It's time to nominate your favorites for the 2021 Best on the Shoreline Awards!
Back when I was a restaurant reviewer for The Day, I was invited to many dinners before the restaurants were open for business. I rarely went because restaurant critics should be anonymous. Now that I write about cooking, no one asks, even though I could actually go. When my editor recently suggested I accept an invitation to Vue24, the penthouse restaurant at Foxwoods to check out its new menu, I thought it might be fun. The food was incredible and either local or regional, sea- or farm-to-table. Appetizers included a rare slice of Hudson Valley (New York) Wagyu beef, Cato Corner cheese (Colchester), smoked branzino (New York), Stonington sea scallops, and smoked salmon (Wallkill, New York). I didn’t stay for the four-course dinner, but the main course menu looks wonderful as well.—Lee White
