Cuisine Connection

"We all eat, and it would be a sad waste of opportunity to eat badly." —Epicurean Anna Thomas Not all restaurants stay open after Labor Day but those dedicated to feeding—and feeding well—visitors and natives throughout the fall months have the opportunity to use the finest from the local harvest from farm and sea. Days and hours vary for different establishments, so check web sites or call ahead if you’re planning a day trip.
