Along with the Craftsmen style homes, charming boutiques shops and the original Dick's Drive-In, Wallingford has always had many restaurants of all stripes. In recent years, you can add very good restaurants to that neighborhood description, with the arrival of Maria Hines' Tilth, named by The New York Times as one of the top 10 restaurants in the country. Add to the mix the crosscultural fusion of the recently opened Joule (how about cassoulet anointed with miso and black truffle oil?), highly regarded May with authentic Thai cuisine and the always-packed Tutta Bella Neapolitan Pizzeria. Locals can visit Bottleworks for the best in beers from around the world--including lovely Belgian brands--and get nearly every fine pantry staple necessary at Bella Cosa Foods.
