14 Claires Corner Copia Photograph by Steve BlazoThe shops at Yale Dining Theres no doubt Greater New Haven is an international dining destination the names say it all. Restaurants like Barcelona Coromandel Cuisine of India and La Luna promise a multicultural feast and they deliver deliciously. Not too long ago the core ethnic dining experience in Greater New Haven was based upon our strong Italian-American heritage from the famed coal-fired apizza from Pepes and Sallys to the elegant dining of Tre Scalini. Restaurants throughout the region incorporate local produce into their seasonal menus. While the recipes are perpetually evolving the results are consistently delectable. And since no mouthwatering meal would be complete without a glass of vino enjoy local wine from Chamard Gouveia Paradise Hills Savino or Bishops vineyards and wineries.
