Cafe Flo at The Florence Griswold Museum

For me, this is the best thing to happen in Old Lyme in a very long time. The newly renovated Landscape Center at the Flo Gris has been repurposed for the season into River Tavern’s only outpost. Have lunch in the barn, or grab a blanket and basket and head down to the banks of the Lieutenant River. The menu is classic RT: their famous guac or hummus, an assortment of fresh-from-the-farm salads, and a few lucious sandwiches, like the ginormous lobster roll on brioche, pictured above. My order doesn’t vary: the grilled summer vegetables with fresh mozzarella, pesto and a surprising grilled peach. Friday, Saturday, Sunday; lunch only. While you’re there, don’t miss Connecticut Treasures, a rare opportunity to see exceptional works from private collections.
