Mystic + The Coast

Restaurants in Mystic + The Coast

A family-friendly—and family-run—Italian place with plenty of options for parents (the Gorgonzola-rich “Lucky Luciano” pizza) and kids (chicken parmesan).

Locals flock at lunchtime for the restaurant's hearty soups. A more sophisticated crowd comes in the evenings for a cocktail vibe.

The cozy restaurant serves an Alsatian choucroute and an ethereal passion-fruit gratin.

Urban chic design meets oysters and tapas.

The thin-crust pizza is amazing, as is the kale-and-quinoa salad and the oatmeal-sunflower-seed bread with almond butter: simple and perfect.

Thanks to Julia Roberts, pizza is to Mystic what sourdough is to San Francisco, and at Mystic Pizza, by an old drawbridge that goes up hourly, it’s actually delicious.
