in reply to Free food I want to see in my company's kitchen

Anything but lasagna; my experience is that the lasagna, and pasta with tomato-based sauces from take out places (with a few exceptions, which are located in NYC and New Haven) aren't worth the calories.

And where are the curry goat, sega wat, and $potatoes{brown}?

    Any specific New Haven suggestions? I work in East Haven, and if our Thursday lunch is Italian it's pretty hit or miss. If only Mamouns would get their shit together and do lunch for us, or Ivy Noodle... mmm, makdoo sammiches and curry tofu noodle...

    obey the law
      The only Italian place I know that does delivery is Abate's, which isn't bad, but if you're willing to have someone drive the few miles a lot more choices open up. Avellino's and Quattro's both do a particularly good and resonably-priced lunch.

      In East Haven, most of the pizza places deliver, and most produce decent pasta dishes (I've had pasta dishes from Tolli's, Roma's, and dePalma's). From New Haven, Est Est Est delivers, but probably won't deliver to East Haven for an order of much less than $100. If you've got somebody willing to drive for a few minutes, try Romeo & Cesare's on Orange St in New Haven. I don't think any of the restaurants (Geppi's, Amalfi Grill, Avellino's, Tre Scalini, etc) are open for lunch. Too bad; they're all worth a visit.

      For non-Italian? In East Haven? Surely you jest! In New Haven, there's Bentara, Caffe Adulis, Union League, Ibiza, Roomba, Zinc, Central Steak House, Carmen Anthony's (which probably does decent pasta dishes). Branford has some good spots, too.
