Table Talk: Makeover in Branford
The Short Beach section of Branford is your typical charming Connecticut waterfront huddle of houses, shops and restaurants.
One of the restaurants was once called Cibo, then Che Tango, and now it's Augie's (203/315-8200), open and airy, with a bar angled to suggest it's tucked aboard a ship.
The food's still Mediterranean but with a Sicilian twist. Chef-owner John Accardi is Sicilian andd uses his grandmother's recipes along with his own. Try his Sicilian-style rice balls and hope the swordfish pasta is on the list of specials.Table Talk: Makeover in Branford
