Connecticut is home to amazing restaurants whose chefs craft their dishes with inspiration, love and care to create some of the most marvelous eats that make our mouth water.

Here are some pictures of Instagrammers who captured this and remind us that food in Connecticut is AWESOME:

1.) Do tacos make you happy? Us too! They also make ctbites very happy. Check out Rincón Taqueria of Norwalk and check out their review in the New York Times.

2.) Chip’s Family Restaurant exists to make your wildest pancake fantasies come true. They've got locations in Fairfield, Wethersfield, Orange, Trumbull and Southbury. Tell them Connecticut Foodies sent you.

3.) You’ll be cheesin’ for this pizza from Pizzeria Molto in Fairfield after looking at this picture from Connecticut Food Lovers.

4.) This dish from Mezon Tapas Bar in Danbury is almost too pretty eat!

5.) You can’t say that the bruschetta in this The Hunger Frames photo taken at Bar Rosso in Stamford doesn’t look amazing, because it totally does. Get in my belly!
