The Ordinary, New Haven
If you’re feeling peckish in the afternoon, stop by The Ordinary. The brothers behind Caseus rescued this landmark (once the saloon at The Taft) and retained the original Gothic bar and wood paneling. It was a cozy spot on a chilly afternoon and we cheered ourselves with gooey grilled cheese and hard cider. Hipsters, prepsters, and professors were happily noshing on charcuterie and cheese plates or sandwiches piled high with pulled pork or grass-fed brisket.
