Trumbull, CT – Guacamole’s Mexican Cuisine
There are lots of places that offer Tex-Mex food, but authentic Mexican cuisine is a rarity in Connecticut, according to Gabriela Velazquez, one of the owners of Guacamole’s Mexican Cuisine.

The restaurant already has locations in Branford and at the Connecticut Post Mall in Milford.
Los Angeles, CA – Mother Wolf
The latest Italian project by Evan Funke, the same chef behind the always-packed Felix Trattoria in Venice, this new Hollywood restaurant will specialize in Roman cuisine, including a nearly crustless wood-fired pizza as well as the deceptively simple cacio e pepe—which Felix fans will recognize from the Westside spot’s more regionally varied menu. The restaurant’s name pays tribute to Rome’s origin story centered on brothers Remus and Romulus and Lupa Capitolina. Located in the Art Deco-style Citizen News building on Wilcox, Mother Wolf is slated to open in late December.
