Patricia Brooks the NY Times food critic for Connecticut will talk about the 4th edition of her “Food Lovers’ Guide to Connecticut”.  The book will hit bookshelves in May and she will bring copies for sale to anyone interested.

She will talk about the regional restaurant changes (e.g. stronger focus on international cuisine, addition of wine lists, wider range of menus, and new words to describe menu options). Patricia will also address the major changes that Fairfield County has experienced as a result of the “California” influence coming from that state’s early Asian and Hispanic communities, immigration reflected in the many nationalities of current owners of town restaurants, and the local residents’ extensive travel to foreign countries.
