Country Bistro - Salisbury, Connecticut

Rural Intelligence FoodTo say the Country Bistro is unpretentious is not a euphemism. Jaqueline Heriteau and her daughter Holly Hunter-Stonehill are expert cooks and published authors. But when they decided to open a breakfast-and-lunch spot behind the Salisbury Post Office they wanted it to be the sort of everyday place where locals could come all the time. And they have a loyal cadre of regulars because for $10.95 you can get a cup of homemade soup (Heriteau wrote “A Feast of Soups” which has 500 recipes so she’s never at a loss for soup specials) a generous half a sandwich (a thick BLT or classic Reuben) arranged stylishly on an oblong white platter with lightly dressed greens and potato chips. What’s more, in warm weather you have your choice of two outdoor patios with umbrella tables (and WiFi!) and waitresses who treat you like a regular even if you’re a newcomer.
