WALRUS + CARPENTER, 2895 Fairfield Ave., Black Rock, CT

Walrus + Carpenter seeks to offer a “truly American experience” for its patrons. The kitchen features fresh wood-smoked meats made daily from its custom-built smoker (with a 10-foot propane tank) and is as known for its side dishes as its BBQ. The bar includes hand-selected, only American-made craft beers, wines and spirits.
