    New Haven is spilling over with great cuisine - Thai, Italian, Eritrean, Japanese, French, Malaysian, the list goes on. But sadly, no good BBQ. Well, the search is over. I finally found a great BBQ place in Connecticut.

    Today I discovered East Hartford's Cookhouse Cafe. Adjacent to a Harley-Davidson shop, Fat Tommy's (as it's otherwise known) does great lunch business from local business folk. The pulled pork sandwich with "scary" sauce was terrific and the sweet potato fries were fantastic. Maybe not quite the caliber of Boston's Blue Ribbon BBQ, but definitely a worthy adversary of Redbones.

    I believe Brak said it best when he sang, "When you fall in love, it's like falling in love, it's like barbecue! Barbidee-barbecue!"
