Pizza Agent Espo writes:
“People have been telling me about Daddy Jack’s a place on Bank Street in New London as a place with good eats. Lou is in Tennessee visiting friends but my friend Peter and I kept our Friday after work go out to dinner date. Daddy Jack (Jack Chaplin) is the chef and owner.
As you can see he has put together a wood fired pizza oven. And I’ll tell you he puts out one heck of a delicious pizza. We had the special pizza of the night which was walnut pesto, prosciutto, roasted red peppers, mushrooms and cheese pie. The ingredients were all fresh and the flavors blended together in the tastiest way. The toppings rested on a thin and crispy crust that in itself was a masterpiece of good cooking, thin and crispy with the fine subtle taste of excellent virgin olive oil. We enjoyed every bite.
We put the finish on the meal with a wonderful piece of pumpkin pie that Daddy Jack’s wife baked. It too was out of this world delicious.
Daddy Jack’s does more than pizza. There is a entre menu that I can’t wait to explore.
Al, Daddy Jack is food maven such as yourself and has put together a great pizza place that I think you and your readers will enjoy.
Thanks Daddy Jack for the inspiration but mostly thanks for the good food.
