Restaurants


New Haven has a tantalizing array of restaurants, ranging from Malaysian to Eritrean, to the restaurant that invented the hamburger and the best pizza this side of Italy. The list below includes only restaurants within walking distance of the Law School and is by no means comprehensive.

One where no one is shut out; one where the weak and vulnerable are not exploited; one that produces fair results based on the merits of the issues before it.”
