At The Pizza Grille of Mystic, chefs grill freshly tossed dough over a wood-fired grill, then layer the thin, crispy discs with gourmet toppings such as ricotta, wild mushrooms, and fresh herbs. Though the namesake entree puts a creative spin on pizza dough, most dishes cleave closely to traditional Italian recipes. Chefs load calzones with housemade tomato sauce and nearly 2-dozen fillings, the same number of fillings found in the mouth of the average sugar-company owner. The kitchen team also tosses pastas with wood-grilled meats and from-scratch marinara sauce.
Go Fish's chefs create each of their seafood dishes from only the freshest fish, often pulled from nearby waters. They bake salmon, grill shellfish, and dice raw tuna to layer into sushi rolls. They extend the nautical theme that defines their menu to their decor, which consists of big, bold, colorful artworks depicting swimming fish or the sails of ships.
From October through May, the restaurant adds wine events, which occur every Wednesday evening. The events give visitors a chance to learn about wines from throughout the world via samples and conversations with knowledgeable presenters.
The enormous menu at Frogeez Frozen Yogurt gives visitors a lot of choices. Luckily, almost all of them are practically guilt-free thanks to recipes that require little to no fat. Inventive flavors include sea salt caramel pretzel, gluten free options, dairy free options, as well as a variety of sugar-free sorbets. After customers swirl their preferred flavor into a cup, they can head to the toppings bar to load up on sweet accessories, such as fresh, local fruit, a wide selection of sauces, boba pearls or chocolate galore.
Soft breezes skip off the shores of Amos Lake, rustling through trees and across the grassy acreage that surrounds Dalice Elizabeth Winery, where second-, third-, and fourth-generation Italian Americans share the secrets of their polished craft. Having dispersed its all-natural specialty foods and wines internationally, the winery's founding family continually impresses the palates of casual indulgers and contest judges alike, churning out grape-to-bottle chardonnays, merlots, and sauvignons that cannot be found on the shelves of local stores. In addition to tastings, the winery hosts winemaking and cooking classes, during which glasses clink between aspiring chefs and vintners as they learn to entertain houseguests or polite burglars with style and ease.
Fronted by British-Nigerian lead singer Sade Adu, Grammy-winning band Sade has seduced eardrums with a potent mélange of R & B, soul, and jazz for nearly 30 years. Performing songs from the new compilation album The Ultimate Collection, Sade will delight fans with greatest hits as well as a smattering of brand-new songs, melding soul-stroking vocals with eye-tickling dancing and onstage spectacle. Special guest John Legend will also throw his honeyed voice into the ring, soothing ears that have been damaged by the cacophony of city life and the screeching of prima-donna chalkboards.
