The classic New Haven menu item is the Clam pizza. It's uniquely delicious and a real local fare. The base is a white pizza topped with cheese, garlic, and of course the main star of the dish - New England clams!
We are real suckers for the classic Tomato pie. Our first introduction to this splendor was at Pepe's and we have been trying our best to recreate this masterpiece at home ever since. It's back to basics - pizza dough, tomato sauce, and grated Parmesan cheese. Simple, easy, but not at all boring to the taste.
New Haven, CT is also home to the original J.Press clothiers. With only four physical stores along the east coast - New Haven, Boston, New York, and of course my beloved Washington, DC - stepping into a J.Press bricks and mortar can always be a treat. The original New Haven store may not be as spiffy as the newer ones, but cut it some slack since it dates back to 1902!
