“A tiny restaurant with big, bold, flavorful Mexican cuisine the way it's meant to be served. And eaten. Parking may be a problem but the walk up and down Water Street is a great introduction to the "Borough".”

“Brunch. Always call ahead and make a reservation or you will be waiting in a line out the door! Fresh popovers on Sunday morning are usually sold out by 10am. The kitchen is magic. The specials are always good - especially seafood. They also are phenomenal for lunch or dinner. Great wine selection. Top notch favorite place. Street parking can be tricky so give yourself some time to find a spot or there is a public lot down the side street - look for signs.”

Food
“Do the tasting and buy a growler of your favorite to take home as the best souvenir ever. They can be busy and there are not many places to sit there to enjoy a drink, so once you know what you like from the tasting, take it to go and enjoy at home or order it when you're out to dinner at various local spots.”

Beach
“Dubois Beach is a tiny beach located at the tip of Stonington and offers nearly a 360 degree view of the water. There are no services at this beach but it is a lovely place to watch the sunset, read a good book and relax. Simply gorgeous!”
