Olde Mistick Village

Mystic, CT! What a great little town in which to visit and relax. It was a pleasant getaway with my girlfriends to catch up and enjoy the town. One of the highlights of the trip, besides the Mystic Aquarium and the restaurants, were the shops in Olde Mistick Village. We stopped at Extra Virgin olive oil shop and we were delighted. The shop had a great atmosphere and owner, Stephen, who actually made everything in the shop, was a great help. There were many types of infused extra virgin olive oil: fresh garlic, fresh basil, blood orange, Tuscan spice, etc. and many types of specialty vinegars: pomegranate, black fig, cranberry, etc. The owner can mix samples for you at the shop or you can go around and try different things yourself.  We ended up purchasing fresh garlic infused extra virgin olive oil and Harvest Riesling vinegar. The picture below shows what we purchased as well as the images from the shop itself. If you like to check out his website click here.

In addition, one of the restaurants in which we ate in Mystic was S&P Oyster Co. They had great fresh seafood dishes, an amazing atmosphere, and a wonderful staff.
