Exploring CTBites: A Celebration of Connecticut’s Food Scene

They say life’s too short to settle for bad food — and for the past few years, Connecticut has been making a name for itself as one of the country’s most significant food hubs. With dozens of new restaurants opening every year, Connecticut is quickly becoming a destination for food lovers everywhere.

If you’re anything like us, you’re always looking for new and exciting things to eat. And while a diet of boxed mac and cheese and reheated pizza for dinners might satisfy your basic human needs, it doesn’t inspire the appetite. Fortunately, exploring new foods is one of the great joys of living in the 21st century.

Thanks to the internet and digital marketing, foodies worldwide can now explore local cuisines at the tip of their fingers — and CTBites is here to help you get started.

A Tasty Treat!

In honor of this recent culinary boom, CTBites is a celebration of Connecticut’s food scene. Every month they highlight inspiring and informative stories about an emerging chef, a new restaurant, or a foodie event making waves in the culinary world. This month, they’re visiting some of the state’s most popular restaurants and caterers in celebration of mother’s day.

When we think of this particular day, we automatically go for flowers and breakfast in bed. But for some moms, cooking and eating are the greatest love of all. For them, nothing is more important than giving their families the best possible meals. And while they might not be “cooking” in the traditional sense, they are creating a culinary masterpiece every day by feeding their families delicious food.

These mothers are Connecticut’s foodies who make our state a fantastic place to live. And this month, CTBites is honoring them by highlighting some of the most popular restaurants in Connecticut and showcasing some of their best dishes.
