The Lockup - Salisbury, Connecticut

Located on Salisbury’s quaint Main Street, The Lockup is owned by restaurateurs Eric and Liz Macaire, former owners of The Bubble Lounge (in New York and San Francisco). Start with the smoky octopus carpaccio ($16), thin wedges of white meat settled in jewel-toned aspic, served with saffron-infused fennel. The Lockup Burger ($15), complete with a fried egg and a healthy portion of French fries could have easily been worn as a catcher’s mask. It was that generous, and loaded with fresh greens, little fried shallots, and a light Mornay sauce. Spaghetti with pesto ($19) is perfect comfort food in the licorice-y essence of the fresh basil and pasta. Don’t pass on dessert: our reviewer recommends the lemon ricotta cheesecake with a “side” of house-made chocolate ice cream, or the warm, ricotta-filled beignets covered in a light caramel sauce.
