CT Style: Holidays in New Haven Special

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Whether you are in the mood for the city’s iconic pizza, a delicious meal, or just looking for a good spot to grab apps and a drink, New Haven has something to please every palate. 

“If you want Italian, you want a steak house, you want Latin, it’s all downtown,” said Moe Gad, the owner of Villa Lulu. “When you want a pizza, you can go around the block to Bar. This is the heart of New Haven.”

If you or a loved one are still not comfortable dining out or you are just looking for that perfect gift this holiday, no worries there are options available. 

“For folks having holiday celebrations at home, or if you are going to a holiday celebration, many downtown New Haven restaurants are offering family-style to-go orders,” explained Bruno Baggetta, marketing director at Market New Haven. “Gift cards make the perfect gift this holiday season. They’re the perfect way to support locals and give the gift of food.”

Watch as CT Style’s Griffin Pierson takes us downtown to see what makes New Haven’s food scene so iconic.
