A new restaurant where the menu changes with the seasons and works with local farmers in our area is a win-win.

The new Newtown eatery named Market Place Kitchen & Bar Newtown is located at the Village at Lexington Gardens on Church Hill Road. That name may sound familiar because there are three other Market Place restaurants, one in Danbury, Woodbury, and Avon.

Mindy and I have enjoyed dinner twice over the last year at the Market Place on Mill Plain Rd. and let me tell you something, the food is outrageous! We both love calamari, and their Crispy Point Judith Calamari was cooked to perfection, the best we've ever had. If you're a scallops freak like I am, order the Market Place Stonington CT Sea Scallops. Trust me on this one. I'm not going to lie, it can be considered pricey, but dinner at the Market Place is worth every penny. The Market Place Kitchen & Bar is now open to the public at 32 Church Hill Rd. in Newtown.
