LET’S DO BRUNCH: THE BOROUGH’S BEST BRUNCH

Tori Trogani - May 23, 2016

One of my first jobs out of college was working at a little jewelry store in Stonington Borough. This ended up being a good and a bad thing: good, because I got the chance to explore all the wonderful shops and restaurants this tiny enclave of Connecticut has to offer, and bad, because I got the chance to explore all the wonderful shops and restaurants this tiny enclave of Connecticut has to offer and, subsequently, was extremely broke.

Despite being post-college poor, on Sundays I would sometimes like to treat myself to slightly more fancy fare than usual by visiting Noah’s Restaurant just down the road for their famous brunch.

IMG_3890 copyimg_3871-copy IMG_3885 copyWhat I like about Noah’s, besides the amazing food, is that when you walk in there’s no mistaking that you’re in an old New England seaside town with all the lovely nautical touches scattered about. There has been a restaurant in this space since the 1960s and you can really feel the history here. The tin ceiling, mahogany bar, cherry booths, and paddle fans all have a well-loved look to them that is very telling. Noah’s has been under the same ownership since the late 1970s (they’ll be celebrating their 37th year in business this August!) and right from the start they established a reputation as a local staple with a focus on scratch cooking using fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

IMG_3874 copyThey have an extensive menu and weekly specials you can choose from, but my absolute favorite dish here is, by far, the brunch baguette. With two poached eggs, black pepper goat cheese, tomato and arugula on their house-made bread topped with a drizzle of truffle oil, it is literally everything I love! Check out their full brunch menu here! 

DSC_1564 copyNoah’s other claim to fame is that it was featured in the 2012 film Hope Springs starring Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones, and Steve Carrell.  For the purposes of the movie, it was renamed the Nor’easter Diner and they’re are pictures of the filming process hung in the bathroom. IMG_3867 copy IMG_3865 copy They also painted the Nor’easter Diner logo on the side of the building and it’s still there so don’t be confused when you’re driving by. It is called Noah’s ;).

IMG_3889 copyDefinitely, don’t pass this little Connecticut gem by if you’re ever in the area. It’s worth the trip!
