Union League Cafe

Located in New Haven.

One of our favorites, we dine here often.

Elegant and refined, it is everything it pretends to be.
Jackets aren't required, but why would you not wear one!

Our most recent visit was for lunch.

I started with the warm beet salad, my wife the lentil bacon soup.
As I have previously asserted, beets are an underrated,under used vegetable.
My salad could not have been better. The best part was not, however, the beets, but the cheese, ribiola cheese. I could have eaten this by the bowl!
My wife's soup was also very good, hearty and homey.

For mains, I chose the roulade of sole and scallops with a leek fondant and sauteed mushrooms, my wife the roasted salmon with fricasse of brussel sprouts and smoked bacon.
Both were excellent, as usual.Cooked and sauced nicely.
Rarely do we have even a minor complaint about a dining experience at the Union League.
