Is Frank Pepe’s the Most Iconic Restaurant in Connecticut?
The lore of Frank Pepe Pizza Napoletana just got a little bigger. The famed Connecticut pizza peddlers were just crowned Connecticut's most iconic restaurant by PureWow.com. The authors of the article chose a restaurant from each of the 50 states. I don't mind being represented by a glorious pizza, that's pretty cool.
I've been a big fan of Pepe's for years. Recently, it was announced that there will be a new Pepe's opening up in my hometown of Waterbury by Spring 2017. I think that PureWow's choice of Pepe's is a fair one. You don't get your own restaurant in a world-class facility like Mohegan Sun unless you have some fame behind your name.
