Don’t waste your time searching for the crudo and antipasto. This is Bridgeport, where locals eat thick, roasted pork chops (how one person could eat the order of two is beyond us) and big bowls of penne tossed with spicy pesto, capers and succulent nibs of prosciutto. The kitchen can get overzealous with its fire sometimes—an order of lemon-kissed grilled octopus came charred, and the chops a bit dry—so request it toned down.
