Hands down the best place to eat in Newington... Really authentic, conscientiously prepared, absolutely delicious food. I had locally grown carrots in a granola cream sauce for dessert! Excellent service, too! Best I've felt during my 5 day stay in town!

We recently at The Rooster Co. for brunch. First off, this is the first place that I have used the Yelp reservation system and I really like it. When we arrived our table was already set and waiting. One of our friends has a young...More
