Mockingbird Kitchen and Bar - Bantam, CT

While the contemporary interior is quite a departure from its original home in the Captain William Bull Tavern, the Mockingbird Kitchen & Bar suffers not for the change. Owner/Chef Tilley’s “locally sourced, globally flavored” cuisine remains the real draw. Pairing far-flung influences with seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, her dishes are creative yet approachable. Miso glazed salmon and a tofu curry spiked with lemongrass honors treasured travels while a rich confit de poulet or bright beet salad highlights the bounty found in our part of New England.

This carries through to the desserts and brunch menus. I’ve happily devoured a chocolate bread pudding and dug into my dinner companion’s carrot cake served with ginger ice cream. Brunch is no less decadent, with a beautifully presented, fluffy French toast with berries or spicy huevos rancheros on offer. If you’re looking for fare on the lighter side, Asian dumplings might fit the bill or perhaps a plate of oysters. Read the full review.
