Katharine Hepburn's Paradise

Things To Do: Restaurants


Alforno offers Neapolitan pizza and New Haven-style pizza. The wild mushroom pizza is recommended. Much more than a pizza joint, Alforno's offers fresh pastas, including spaghetti with littleneck clams and pan-roasted Atlantic flounder with a sauce of tomatoes, olives and white wine over sautéed spinach. more...


A long way from its Rocky Mountain namesake, this fine-dining restaurant consistently delivers scrumptious contemporary American dishes with some of the finest ingredients. Small plates include steak and mushroom bruschetta and seared rainbow trout. Choose from such main plates as Stonington scallops, Berkshire pork chop and beef tenderloin braciole. The classy dining room features a double-sided fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows and a granite bar. more...

Fresh Salt

Beautiful Long Island Sound views are a bonus at this fine-dining establishment next to a marina at the Saybrook Point Inn & Spa. Enjoy fresh seafood from New England waters such as Chatham cod, Block Island swordfish and Point Judith monkfish. Carnivores may prefer the Chianti braised short rib or the eight-ounce filet mignon, and the presentations don't disappoint. Sunday brunch costs $39.95, but there is no reason to complain. The buffet is stocked with an amazing array of foods, including oysters and clams on the half-shell, prime rib, wondrous salads and desserts, and made-to-order omelets, pancakes and pastas. There also is an attractive bar area and an informal outdoor bar at dockside. more...

Liv's Oyster Bar

The raw bar lures diners with various types of oysters from New England and Canada, littleneck and cherrystone clams, and cooked shrimp. Happy hour, which runs from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, is a bargain with reduced-price drinks and seafood. Creative entrees include lobster risotto, yellowfin tuna crusted with fennel and pepper, and pan-seared duck with sweet potato gnocchi, homemade duck sausage and Tuscan kale. A variety of craft beers are on tap, and numerous wines are poured by the glass. more...
