Restaurants in Litchfield County
Manolo Blahnik executives George Malkemus and Anthony Yurgaitis opened the Puglia-inspired Arethusa Al Tavolo in 2013. Chef Dan Magill (a Boulud alum) infuses the menu with seasonal flavors—think cider-glazed duck with pumpkin-amaretti purée in the fall.
Chef Billy Grant says the Italian comfort fare he serves at Restaurant Bricco is inspired by childhood memories of his mother's cooking. Order some orecchiette with sautéed shrimp, then wrap up with a dish of homemade olive oil gelato.
