From Our Editors
Inside of Red Hen, an Old Saybrook bistro that opened in late 2012, plates of Mediterranean-inspired fare share table space with American classics. Chefs thoughtfully choose the ingredients for these dishes, taking care to procure free-range chicken and sourcing seafood from nearby Little Narragansett Bay. This care led Coastal Connecticut Magazine to praise the casual yet upscale menu as "meticulously constructed with an eye toward color, shape, and texture."
Besides comforting, yet upscale entrees, the bistro also features a tapas menu that traffics in small plates. These shareable morsels can pair with 30 wines by the glass or quartino, and sips of craft beer and carefully-crafted cocktails prepared by a bartender nominated as mixologist of the year by the Connecticut Restaurant Association.
