Igniteful Question #2 — The Bridge House, Milford, CT

Maybe this Igniteful Question will become a travelogue?

I had the pleasure of dining at The Bridge House, in Milford, Connecticut last week, the evening before a Vistage talk with John Frank’s key leader group (which went well).  The Bridge House is a gastropub , a “…restaurant with a casual, relaxed atmosphere, similar to the English / Irish Pub, with menu choices of a quality that would be found in the best fine dining restaurants” (snipped off their website), menu here.

True to form, the ignitful question, ‘What would the chef like to serve tonight?’ yielded succulent results.

My ccourteous, attentive server, Nancy, started me off with Salt and Pepper Shrimp. One word — AMAZING!  The salted and peppered shrimp were perched over a bed of sweet and sour cucumbers, artichoke heart, olives — really big ones, with a nice, zippy note of Tobasco.


There’s the charming Nancy — my smart phone somehow tried to take a movie of it, so its a screen shot.  The entree’ was  a Hudson Valley Duck Breast –goats cheese “farotto”, Brussels sprouts in  garlic jus.  (Yes, I love sprouts!).  The farotto was new to me, and fun, and the duck was surprisingly tender. Two for two.

We finished everything off with a Crème brûlée and a coffee.


Nancy’s smile says it all.
