Good News For People Who Love Bad News

Here we are, always crying in our beer about no good grocery stores within walking distance in New Haven, when in sneaks LIMON FINE FOODS just across the border in Hamden, right near the godforsaken DMV. The "coming soon" sign at State and Ridge had been up in the old Nations Supermarket building for a while, but then all of a sudden Limon opened! Okay, so they opened up early last month, but we finally went to sniff around for ourselves yesterday.

And what a delight! A Turkish delight! Lots of lebne, kefte kebab mix, stuffed eggplant in a can, and homemade baba ganoush every day. An olive bar where you can sample before you buy. More hot chili pepper varieties than these parts of Connecticut have ever seen. The cheeses! The Italian crackers! Quality, low-acid vinegars! Many kinds of masa! Organic versions of almost everything! A huge and beautiful prepared foods section! I am agog. There is no reason to go to Stop & Shop ever again! Just a quick drive through the back of East Rock Park, no more than five minutes away. C'mon, neighbors, let's help make sure this place stays in business.
