Willimantic's Cafemantic is a special little enclave in eastern Connecticut, with a menu of eclectic, locally-influenced small plates. The meltingly tender, subtly spiced jerk chicken is a prime example of the restaurant's culinary capability. Warm potato salad is an excellent complement, but you'll almost be too busy savoring those last morsels of meat to pay the starch any mind. - Leeanne Griffin Price: $8. 948 Main St., Willimantic. 860-423-4243, cafemantic.com.
