Heirloom Restaurant

From the weekend trip Get an Honorary Degree in New Haven

When you're ready to graduate to finer fare, this farm-fresh restaurant at the new Study at Yale (see Where to Stay, below) serves updated American classics for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Heirloom's a lot less plush than New Haven's other culinary heavy hitters (Bespoke, Union League Cafe), but its pared-down aesthetic is a welcome change that also lets the food shine. Chef John Nordin (a Todd English devotee) sources most ingredients locally and plates reinvented New England comfort fare (crab cakes, dates wrapped in bacon, mac-and-cheese), plus daily seasonal specials.
