Mo's Burgers and Brew. Not only are their burgers delicious, but their ham grinder is banging too :)

Valentino's may have contest fatigue but they're nominated for this poll too.

Paragon at Foxwoods if someone else is paying. Executive chef Scott Mickleson's food is divine, but way out of my price range.

I second the nomination for Paragon at Foxwoods! Amazing gourmet cuisine and impeccable service with a view that's second to none, at least for Ledyard.
