If you're ever in Milford, CT, make sure to stop by Bobette's (they are right off of I-95 exit 36 at 93 Old Post Road) for their Famous Mussel Chowder, thick & hearty, perfect for a snowy day.
It is a small, little roadside dive of a place with nowhere to sit and if the lines at lunch are any indication 'tis also very well liked. It was highly recommended to me when I worked in the area and I ate there for lunch every day for two weeks. They also have some great sandwiches besides a choice of a number of soups each day beyond the house specialty.
But check the hours or call ahead because they close at 3PM in the afternoon.
