NewHavenEats: The First Six Months, Part Two

Part Two

Today is the second of a two-part, pictorial round-up of the food and restaurants I profiled over the last six months. Keeping in mind I’m a photographer, not a reviewer, I’ve used one favorite photo from each restaurant and a link to their website to refresh the eater’s memory.

Again, I want to thank every owner and chef I’ve profiled for their generosity, warmth and humor. It is they who’ve made this blog possible, and I’m grateful to each of them.
