Mystic, CT Area Food Guide: Annual Taste of Mystic Highlights

The splendor of New England

One of the greatest advantages to living in New England is its proximity to so many other great things.
Drive an hour to the north and you are in New Hampshire, blissfully shopping tax-free or catching some powder in the white mountains. Drive a few more hours and you're in quaint sea-side village in Maine or hiking one of the Green Mountains in Vermont. And, of course, there's Boston.
There's no shortage of New England splendor to the south with Rhode Island "The Ocean State" and beautiful Connecticut.

The Taste of Mystic

The Taste of Mystic tickled New Englander's taste buds for the second time in August with over 30 local restaurants serving up an array of delectable food and drink in historic downtown Mystic, CT.

Cedars Steak House - Petite Filet Mignon and Shrimp with Gorgonzola Bacon Cream and Balsamic Glaze. At $6 each, this was one of the priciest items of the day - but definitely well worth it.
