Top 8 Outdoor Dining Spots

Here’s a short list of my favorite spots for outdoor dining in no particular order.

1. Pack your favorite wine (and glasses) and head to The Blue Oar on the Connecticut River in Haddam for fresh salads and grilled fish. 16 Snyder Road, 860.345.2994. No website.

2. On the sidewalk at River Tavern in Chester.

3. In the Landscape Center Barn or grab a basket and picnic on the river at Cafe Flo at the Florence Griswold Museum.

4. Pick up a box lunch from Olive Oyl’s in Essex and picnic at the CT River Museum.

5. Live music and fish and chips at The Back Porch in Old Saybrook

6. Fresh Salt at the Saybrook Point Inn (reviewed on The E List this week, May 18th, 2011)
