Pond House Cafe Restaurant Review

: The restaurant is an oasis within an oasis. Nestled among the greenery of Elizabeth Park, this upscale, eclectic eatery is all too easy to overlook---and the hipsters and intelligentsia who frequent it hope it stays that way. But this simply decorated, candle-lit spot deserves foot traffic---and not only for its serene woodland views. Timothy Scott---whose credentials include Scoozi in New Haven and Max Amore in Glastonbury---is a classically-trained but globally-minded chef who liberally adds Indian, Thai and Mediterranean touches to his oft-changing menu. Starters may include a crab cake with basmati rice and a charcuterie platter; among the entrées, we like twists on classics like the crispy, pan-seared duck a l’orange made new with lingonberry sauce. Vegetarians will delight in knowing that Scott is keen on organic produce. And oenophiles will be pleased to BYOB (there's no liquor license).
