“Frank Pepe originated the New Haven-style thin crust pizza which he baked in bread ovens fired by coke. Coke is a byproduct of coal and it was used extensively until the late 1960’s when it became unavailable and hence coal was then put into use to fire the oven. Pepe’s signature pizza, the White Clam Pizza, was most likely an organic inspiration by Frank Pepe; an idea born from the fact that Pepe’s also served raw little neck clams from Rhode Island, on the half shell, as an appetizer.”

“PIZZA & BEER! (And salad if you want balance) New Haven being known for the best pizza, this is one of my favorites. Super thin. Make a reservation or go during the week if you don’t want to wait! ”

“Mohegan Sun is smaller than Foxwoods, but still offers a variety of activities and something for everyone. Shopping, dining (our favorite here is the Tuscany's brunch), salon & spa, as well as an arcade for kids. ”

Hotel
“It used to be that if you wanted to party on the East End, you were either battling the lines and awful people at horrible clubs like Pink Elephant (RIP) and Jet East (RIP) in Southampton, reverting to your old college ways at Stephen’s Talkhouse, or getting really messy at The Point and Memory Motel in Montauk (which is absolutely still a good idea). Now, everyone just goes to the Surf Lodge - or tries to. At this point, Saturday nights are completely off limits. It’s an absolute zoo. We get our Surf Lodge in around 6 or 7pm for an early cocktail and live music, or on a rainy Friday when it’s empty. Eating a full meal here isn’t necessary, unless you’re booking with the hopes of eating dinner here to skip the line.”

“Better known as just "LUNCH" this is probably the most famous lobster roll in the Hamptons. 20 minute drive and sitting just off Montauk Highway, it's hard to find a better lunch than lunch.”

“A bit further up from downtown but well worth the drive! Along with Sally's and Pepe, Modern is one of the top 3 Apizza spots that have made New Haven renowned for its pizza. Enjoy delicious brick-oven, thin-crust pizzas in a simple but clean spot. The Hyatus favorite is their specialty Italian Bomb Pizza. But if you are feeling for something a bit less complex, go with the good old Plain Mozzarella. Clam and fresh tomato is also delicious. ”

“12-minute drive "This relatively new restaurant is blessed with the perfect location at Seaport Marine right on the water. You walk on a dock to get to Red 36! Needless to say, the outdoor experience is first-rate, and not just because the views and the town of Mystic are gorgeous. The food at Red 36 is also gorgeous, and while the location feels a bit seafood rustic/casual, the cuisine has a delicious sophistication. Sure there’s a raw bar and clam chowder, but there’s also a menu of grilled flatbreads, appetizers like crispy fried oysters with cucumber kim-chee and ginger vinegar, and entrées like paella-style risotto with shrimp, clams, mussels, chorizo sausage, roasted chicken, peas, oven- roasted tomatoes and creamy saffron risotto, and truffle mushroom ravioli with seared scallops, asparagus, sweet potatoes, shitake mushrooms, pancetta and sherry wine butter."”
