Connecticut restaurants have been honing their take-out game for a year, and it’s high-time we celebrate the spots that have really given us something to look forward to each week. This week on Seasoned: the best take-out in the state. Leeanne Griffin, Food and Consumer Reporter at Hearst Connecticut Media, joins Marysol Castro and Chef Plum to dish about the restaurant beat (is there a better job?) and take listeners’ calls about take-out food in Connecticut. Leeanne has covered the local restaurant scene for more than a decade. She knows where all the gems are. We invite listeners to call us and shout-out their favorite restaurants, those tried-and-true take-out joints, the mom-and-pop shops that never disappoint. Where is your favorite take-out?
Robyn Doyon-Aitken and Catie Talarski produced this show.
