Nibbles: Alforno

I so miss going to a restaurant for dinner. By the time you read this, I will have gotten my first vaccine dose and, by the middle of February, I will have had my last. My first stop? Alforno in Old Saybrook. For almost a year, the Zemmel family has been serving takeout meals to those of us who loved their food, but in December they decided to close for January. I was so happy to see they reopened at the end of January for lunch and dinner. The outdoor patio is covered in plastic drapes and warmed with multiple heaters; the inside room is ready for distance dining. Many of my favorites (the meatballs, bean soup, housemade pasta and sauces) will be served inside (but also available for takeout). I can’t wait.
