Erica From the-e-list Says Madison Beach Hotel "One Of The Hottest Tables In Town"

"I wasn't able to snag one for dinner (call well ahead), but lunch of a buttery lobster roll with homemade potato chips with THIS view hit the spot."


Erica from the ever popular e-list visited the Madison Beach Hotel recently and liked what she saw, and what she ate:

One of the hottest tables in town this summer is on the deck of the new Madison Beach Hotel. I wasn't able to snag one for dinner (call well ahead), but lunch of a buttery lobster roll with homemade potato chips with THIS view hit the spot. The menu is straightforward; chowder, burgers, and clubs with a few trendy items thrown in; a Burrata Caprese, Berkshire pork belly and flatbread pizzas. Coming soon: a raw bar on the deck.

Have you been for lunch or breakfast at the Madison Beach Hotel, 94 West Wharf Road in Madison, CT? It easier to get a table then and those meals tend to be less expsensive than dinner. What would you recommend?

It is small wonder to me that after reading the recent Wall St. Journal Article on the subject that AOL's Patch Division is losing so much money. I personally wish that Madison Patch would stop being a shill for the Madison Beach Hotel. Article after article extols the virtue of the Hotel. Since this is allegedly a publication for the people of Madison I wish Patch would realize that the Hotel is NOT popular with many Madison residents. It is an awful looking building...the interior appointments are straight out of Home Depot....the food prices are stratospheric....parking is inadequate and most people I know wish that either an appropriate facility to serve local people was built or that the old hotel be left as it was. Please stop the free advertising...it is getting nauseating.

Some locals like it and some don't. I've covered the great, the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to Madison Beach Hotel, including traffic and parking problems around the hotel (with video), the neighbors' concerns, labor problems, and other issues. I've also written about the neighbors who like it, the festivities at the hotel, and the hotel's efforts to give back to the community by way of free entertainment on Tuesdays (movies) and Thursdays (art and music). That you've chosen to read selectively is your choice. Some guy named Richard who doesn't like the decor isn't news. When Erica, who has a well-established and well-read newsletter, likes something, it is.
